The City of Rio Vista is well-known for its scenic beauty and friendly small town atmosphere. Considered by many as the gateway to the Delta, Rio Vista is located near the intersection of the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers and more than 1,000 miles of waterways. The area is a popular destination for a variety of recreational activities, including golfing, camping, fishing, boating, windsurfing, water skiing, and paddle boarding. It is the ideal location for the outdoors person.

The compact size and easy rolling hills of Rio Vista make it a great place for walking and biking. Visitors can stroll along the charming downtown streets to enjoy the quaint shops, a wide variety of restaurants, and great views of the Delta. The Rio Vista Bridge to Beach Trail walking tour takes visitors through downtown and historic sections of town, connecting the iconic Helen Madere Memorial Bridge to Sandy Beach Park.

The Rio Vista Museum is a step back in time with an amazing collection of items from families, schools and businesses that have called this community home since 1858. Another local attraction, the Dutra Museum, tells the fascinating history of dredging in California, with historic photos, ledgers, and a model of a dredging operation.

The Golf Club at Rio Vista is a true golf treasure that tests the avid golfer yet welcomes the novice. The course's distinct water features, excellent conditions and the challenging but fair design are just a few of the many reasons to play The Golf Club at Rio Vista. The Delta Marina is located on the river's edge just a few blocks from Main Street. The picturesque marina has 800 feet of guest docking and 25 recreational vehicles sites, several right on the water.

Just a mile from downtown is Sandy Beach, a county park with 42 clean grassy campsites, a big boat launch and ample parking. Each site is equipped with tables, barbecue pits and hook-ups for electricity and water. This is a perfect location for family camping, picnics, kite flying, volleyball games or just a weekend getaway. Whether you find Rio Vista as you drive through the rolling hills along Highway 12, sail along the Sacramento River or drop in at the general aviation airport, you'll find a community worth discovering again and again. As you enjoy your stroll through town, take a moment to admire the historic architecture and scenic river views. Explore the shops in the Rio Vista's quaint downtown or the fine local restaurants.
