An ideal place to spend a day outdoors, the City Park in Benicia stands on the site of California's first Protestant church.

Also known as the Benicia Masonic Hall, the Old Masonic Hall in Benicia, CA was built in 1850 as a Masonic Temple. The building housed court room and offices and the second floor accommodated rooms of the Lodge. After the Masons sold off the property in 1887, it was used as a clubhouse and a meetinghouse until the Lodge acquired it again. The building is now a part the US National Register of Historic Places.
This building served as a State Capitol from 1853 to 1854, and the Benicia Capitol State Historic Park houses this structure. The interiors as well as the exterior portion has been restored and is open to general public for viewing. Visitors can explore the furniture, furnishings and fixtures that were used in the bygone era. Guided tours or group visits can also be arranged with prior reservations.
Falcor is a fine example of a boutique family winery, with a keen focus on crafting some of the highest quality wines in the Napa Valley.
Located on 38 acres in the Carneros appellation in southwestern Napa, these grape vines were first planted on the property in the mid-1800s. The current winery, founded in 1981, produces fewer than 20,000 cases annually, predominantly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. About 1000 cases of limited release wines are also produced, including a Cabernet Franc and a dessert wine. Renovated in 1995, the winery retained the historic architecture of the original buildings and still employs a traditional Burgundian method of producing Pinot Noir in open-top concrete fermenter. Several wines have won awards. Wine tasting is free.
