What are the holidays without See’s Candy chocolate fix? Benicia Main Street’s gift store is stocked full of the delectable boxes of yummy goodness. Located at the end of First Street on the waterfront, the Main Street Program puts on many events throughout the year, including Wine Walks, Taste of First Street, Independence Day Parade and Fireworks and myriad Halloween events.

Downtown Benicia comes alive in December, with the Christmas Parade and Holiday Market and the much anticipated, pedestrian-only Holiday Open House and Tree Lighting. Shops are open late, offering appetizers and libations to the thousands of folks who first come to watch the flipping of the switch as the holiday tree’s colorful lights go on at the waterfront.

Inside the Historic Railroad Depot, Benicia Main Street’s gift store offers much more than the wall of See’s candy offerings, including warm Benicia Main Street logo sweatshirts if it’s cold outside.
