Hometown Blues

Blue collar home to a former site of the state capitol, Martinez retains the reigns of power for Contra Costa County government with its courts, law enforcement infrastructure, social services, refineries (although one is technically in Avon CA) and higway corridors. The shorelines are dotted with light industrial and commercial zones while the inland hills blend residential zones among city and common infrastructure boundaries.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Good parks, access to outdoor activities, decent parking, good access to out of area public transit
  • Cons:Lack of convenient public transit inside city, more concession to industry than residents
  • In a nutshell:A good base camp for extended stays in SF Bay Area
  • Last visit to Martinez: Jan 2003
