Martinez is a small-feel community (Bocce anyone?) with a big past as one of the first cities before the state of California was established and home to John Muir. The changing topography offers water and Benicia Bridge views from old downtown with darling cottage neighborhoods, newer bedroom communities bordering popular Pleasant Hill to stunning Alhambra Valley with multi-million dollar estates.
It’s one of only a few areas left in Central Contra Costa County left that offer more affordable housing options.
