The Bay Area’s Best Kept Secret


Benicia is a quaint waterfront community nestled between the Carquinez Strait and Suisun Bay. This hidden gem has a small-town feel, with easy access to San Francisco. The nearby Ferry building offers a scenic route to San Francisco and AT&T Park; while BART is only a few miles away. Benicia is home to some of the top ranked public schools in Northern California; and with more than 20 parks to enjoy, it is an ideal place to raise a family. 

“The scenic Bay Area city of Benicia is unlike any other, with a beautiful waterfront, bustling arts community, top notch shopping and dining, and rich history. With all there is to do in such close proximity, Benicia is a great “strolling” town.”

“Benicia boasts one of the most active and influential art communities in the Bay Area. Hundreds of artists live and work in studios throughout the city, creating a variety of world-class pieces.”

Vallejo Ferry


Tired of spending hours on the highway after a hard days work? It’s a well known fact that the SF Bay Area commute is one of the worst in the nation; and it can often take hours fighting traffic just to make it home. Located only a few minutes from Benicia, the Vallejo Bay Ferry offers a new way to approach your daily commute! The ferry provides an opportunity to kick back and enjoy scenic views (and possibly even a tasty libation?) on the relaxing cruise home. Want to grab a quick bite before you jump the ferry to the ball park? Head into the Vallejo Ferry building and stop over at Mare Island Brewing Company for a local beer or a delicious bite to eat. Cmmute smarter, not harder!
