I'm not from the bay area... I found a little apartment in Benicia I may rent - can anyone tell me a bit about the area and maybe an opinion or 2?

I've lived in Marin since I moved to California a few months back, so the furthest I've been over that way (until yesterday) is American Canyon

Default Benicia

I've only been there once, but I thought downtown Benicia was very charming. It has some nice shops/restaurants, and there's a walking trail along the water with nice views. Also the architecture in the area was cool, mostly older homes (like 100 years old) that looked like they've been taken care of. As far as other areas of Benicia, I can't really comment. I know my friend was considering buying a very cheap condo on the Vallejo/Benicia border and that area looked ok.
