Antioch Quick Facts
A Traveler's Guide to AntiochAntioch is a city that is located in the northern region of the US state of California. California is located on the Pacific west coast of the United States and is the largest state by population. Antioch is located in Contra Costa County in the East Bay portion of the San Francisco Bay Area. It is a bedroom suburb community of Oakland and San Francisco. English is the official spoken and written language of Antioch.
The city of Antioch was founded in 1850, making it one of the oldest cities in the state. The city was first settled by gold seekers who flocked to the area after gold was discovered there in 1849. Two brothers, William and Joseph Smith, named the town Smith's Landing, but later the town's minister suggested that the name be changed to Antioch in honor of the city in the Bible by the same name.
Gold wasn't the only natural resource near Antioch. Coal was discovered about ten years after gold was and the city became a coal producing leader. The coal and gold mining industries faded in the 20th century and today the city is primarily a bedroom community with some fishing and boating businesses on the city's marina.
