Martinez is located in Contra Costa County, California and has a population of 37,287 as of the 2020 census. The city’s downtown has retained much of its original charm, exemplified by the eclectic mix of shops and restaurants that line its historic Main Street. Martinez is just on the south side of the Carquinez Straight of the San Francisco Bay and sits opposite the city of Benicia. Martinez has a rich story to tell – by 1849, the city had become a way station for the California Gold Rush. In 1860, the city played a key role for the Pony Express, providing ferry service from Benicia.

Although the town was instrumental in California’s Gold Rush, it was the Fur Rush (of the 18th and 19th centuries) that had the most to do with the “opening up” of the West. Prior to the Fur Rush, the Delta (which Martinez borders) probably had the largest concentration of beaver in North America.
Martinez Shorelines and Climate
Though the town is known for its major refineries, it abounds with the natural open-space preserves and is surrounded nearly entirely by water. The Martinez Regional Shoreline, which forms the north border of the city, Carquinez Straight Regional Shoreline, Briones Regional Park, Franklin Canyon, and Alhambra Valley, are among the natural spaces that characterize, and border, the area. In fact, Martinez is one of only two places where the San Francisco Bay Trail and the Bay area Ridge Trail converge. Once the Bay Trail is complete, it will encircle both the San Francisco and San Pablo Bay in a continuous 400 mile network of bike and hiking trails.
Residents enjoy a mild Mediterranean climate, with warm dry summers, cold wet winters, and occasional morning fog, all of which have made in the area supportive of agriculture for many years. But, the city’s legacy of ecological awareness may also be due in part to its connection to the renowned naturalist John Muir, who lived in Martinez from 1880 to his death in 1914.
