Benicia has a charming, historic downtown right on the bay.
The main street, First Street, is lined with antiques stores, art galleries, restaurants, and spas, and ends at the bay with a fishing pier. The area is very dog friendly with poop bag stations nearly every block and two small off-leash beach areas. It is a great day trip to spend with the pugs. We have gone a couple of times.
On the pier.
Kento loves the little beach area. He loves splashing in the water.
“Can we stay and play a little longer?”
Moka preferred rolling in the grass to swimming in the water at the beach.
