Benicia is known for its weekly farmers market, abundance of working fine artists, great schools, sports teams for kids, bocci ball league for adults, sail boat racing every Thursday in at the marina for sailers. Benicia is a down-to-earth community, with a thriving downtown, live music venues, hiking trails, health clubs, yoga studios, cross fit gyms, paddle boarding and kiting classes, skate park, open artist studios, art gallery wine walk shows, and is host to an abundance of parades and main Street events. Plus Benicia hosts comedy shows, open mic nights, trivia nites and film festivals.
With a population of 28,000, Benicia prides itself on feeling like a secret town in the SF Bay Area, being free from “big box store” and instead, concentrates on a plethora of thriving small businesses. Recent additions within just the past year are Lucca’s Beer Garden, Farm & Flour (an artisan coffee and gourmet lunch hall,) the organic Juice House Company, the gluten-free One House Bakery Café and the waterfront restaurant Bella Siena. Benicia gets compared to Sausalito (without all the pretense) and what Northern California was like before it got so crowded.
In addition to strolling the waterfront, Benicia also boast 40 parks! Plus a dog park. The Benicia State Park offers a nature escape with a car free paved path along the Carquinez Straight. This perch is also just 1 block away from the SF Bicycle Bay Trail, which is a 25 mile scenic bike lane loop - with the local Benciia cycling club doing group rides on Wednesdays and Saturday.
