This small city is located just over two hours from the beach, the mountains and the bigger cities, well populated with military retirees from other States as well as other countries/continents, England, Germany, Asia etc. For some reason we’re fortunate to miss out on the extremes of the really hot weather and the really cold weather and, combined with the (normally) low cost of living, it makes Martinez a great place to live for families, singles or retirees.

New residents to the Martinez area are often educated by the native residents to the correct pronunciation of Martinez. Martinez was named after the Jose Martinez y Saldivar from Cuba.
