      What Inlove about Benicia is it’s not as an Francisco or Sacramento. It’s a nice small town with a lot to offer, and right of the back I would recommend for any family of any size. It was great growing up here, the school system is great with a number of elementary schools to chose from. I still have fond memories of when I was a kid.

      Downtown is great for entertainment or a Lisa sure night on the town. Lots of restaurants, shops and stores to chose from. It it’s right on the waterfront, so there is a ton of views mixed with many historical locals like the Town Hall turned museum, where Benicia was the first capital of California.

      Streets are safe, cops do a great job. The only issues I would raise, is I wish growing up their was more diversity. I think I could have benefited from that, but overall I love this small, historical town.
