"Seat of Contra Costa County & Oil Refining Town" Martinez by WulfstanTraveller

Martinez Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 32 photos

Martinez is the county seat of Contra Costa County, the northernmost of the two East Bay counties on the east side of the San Francisco Bay. As with much of the area, its economy is heavily intertwined with massive oil refineries. Located in a good position near the Carquinez Strait between the San Francisco Bay and the delta of the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers, it grew earlier than other town in the county and has a fairly attractive, fairly large, if quite, downtown.
