Everyone makes a big deal about the clock tower, but I find it's just okay. it does it's purpose to accommodate a large group of people.

Free to see, great views! Plenty of parking and shade. Pokestops nearby. Great views of the water and lots of shipping activities to see and look at.

Just a nice view - 5 minutes to drive by. It's a good stop on the way to the Camel Barns/Historical Museum.

The location overlooks the water and the bridge. It's a memorable place to get married or watch friends

Nice old building at the end of Military West. Nice place to just check the history of Benicia. Easy parking as well.

Interesting building and useful for large events. the facilities are only marginal, and there is an elevator but it's difficult to use (very old.) We always take out of town guests to see it because of it's history.

It's a great location and has lots of history. It can hold lots of people. The only thing that is bad about it is it gets extremely hot. There is no ventilation. Only 1 or 2 of the windows can be opened.
