"A Bit Dangerous Around the Train Station"

Marina Vista Ave. runs parallel to the Amtrack trrain tracks, taking you from Old Martinez to the Benicia Freeway. In old Old Martinez, Marina Vista begins with three blocks of very run down looking homes and apartments. These give way to a park right by the Martinez Amtrack station. Despite the nearby courthouse and the heavy police presence in the area, one does not feel safe in this area. When you use the Amtrack stations here, you are often watched carefully by vagrants who seem an ever present part of the area. I would not want to be alone here at night.

As Marina Vista leaves the city ,it passes the many chemical processing plants of the Shell Refinery. Unless you enjoy examining machinery, you are likely to find this are very run-down and unpleasant. It is certainly nowhere you want to find your self after dark..
  • The Amtrak Station
  • Rundown Look by Station
  • Terrible for Parking
