Benicia's proximity to the water provides a stunning backdrop for a relaxing stroll along First Street or an invigorating hike along the trails in the State Recreation Area. The Carquinez Strait connects Suisun Bay with San Pablo Bay, a northern extension of the San Francisco Bay. So the city reaps all the benefits of a seaside, but sheltered, location: a mild climate and more fog-free days that make the views out over the water seem limitless!
The downtown waterfront area in Benicia encompasses the Waterfront Promenade, Benicia Point Pier and First Street Green. Beyond downtown, the waterfront is accessible at many spots on the southern edge of Benicia, via pedestrian and bike routes from the Benicia Marina to West 14th Street, and then outdoor recreation areas that extend further west along the Strait.
