Benicia State Recreation Area

Grassy wetlands and rocky beaches may not be the ideal location for water play and dating, they make for a very soulful setting when you want to do some soul-gazing or art-making together. Bring your art supplies, notebook and camera and prepare to be inspired by both your lover and the setting. It’s also a great place to skate, so pack your rollerblades if you want to. There’s also plenty of picnic space and trails to explore on your date, as well as animals to spot. Have you ever been to Benicia State Recreation Area? Tell us about how your date there went.
