About San Benito County

How to Beat a San Benito County Traffic Ticket

Father Juan Crespi, one of the first to record his expedition in the area, named a small river in honor of San Benedicto (or Saint Benedict, the patron saint of the married). It is from that small river, that San Benito County later derived its name in 1874. San Benito County was originally formed from a portion of Monterey County and as the population grew, additional acreage was acquired from Merced and Fresno Counties.

San Benito County shares a border with Santa Clara, Merced, and Fresno Counties and is sometimes considered part of the San Francisco Bay Area. There are just over 60,000 people living within the county’s total area of 1,390 square miles. The local economy thrives on agriculture, and more recently “agritourism,” or agriculture activity that also attracts tourists.

Visitors travel great distances to visit the area’s growing wineries and organic farms. Yet thanks to the surrounding beautiful county, San Benito county also offers recreation and outdoor activities, wine-tasting, bike rides with views of the Santa Ana Peak, and many quaint, small-town shops.
