Welcome to Martinez
Martinez is the county seat and a strategically located historic waterfront community. It lies approximately 35 miles northeast of San Francisco and 60 miles from Sacramento (to the northeast) and San Jose (to the south). Established in 1849 as a Gold Rush boomtown, Martinez is one of the oldest towns in the state and was home to John Muir, as well as the birthplace of Joe DiMaggio and the martini! Its charming downtown features shops, restaurants, professional services, a free Wi-Fi network, and 240V electric vehicle charging stations. Residential neighborhoods range from turn-of-the-century Victorians and bungalows to contemporary homes with suburban amenities. The city’s intermodal Amtrak station, BART stations, and countywide bus service make it easy to get around the greater Bay Area.
