Filled with retail stores, bars, restaurants and specialty businesses, Benicia’s mile-long downtown is buzzing with nonstop energy. First Street’s lively atmosphere pulls people into its magnetic core—shoppers, dog walkers, joggers, those seeking food and drink or coffee culture converge here. With the stunning backdrop of waterfront vistas, history dating back to the gold rush and abundant sunshine, what’s not to love?  This latest installment of our First Street primer covers F Street to G Street.

This powerhouse block offers prime shopping with eleven retail stores that include art glass shops, antiques stores, vintage clothing and furniture, an independent book store, a specialty frame shop, home décor and furnishings, a Gym, a specialty toy and music store and places to eat. There are also numerous salons (seven of them!), BrickSpace Lego learning center and the Benicia Chamber of Commerce.

With such fine boutiques such as Benicia Frame, Bookshop Benicia, Romancing the Home, Mozart, Einstein and Me, Charlie’s Attic and others, plus the ever-popular Sandoval’s Restaurant, this block is always hopping.
