At one time, family-friendly Vacaville was the fresh fruit capital of California, shipping fruit and nut products throughout the nation. Now Vacaville is more well-known for its numerous community events, a fantastic theatre, some of the best shopping the Bay Area has to offer, a quaint, fun downtown and well-maintained parks and athletic facilities.

Our proximity to the Sacramento region and beyond, including Lake Tahoe, the San Francisco Bay Area, and world-renown wine producing regions such as the Suisun, Napa and Sonoma valleys make Vacaville an attractive location to spend a night, a week, or the rest of your life.

Starting with what's known as "The Heart of the City," Downtown Vacaville has a wide array of shops, restaurants, and spas. Town Plaza hosts a variety of entertainment year-round, while nearby Andrews Park is home to numerous events throughout the year. Residents and visitors alike flock to the area for live music, festivals and cooking competitions. A wide array of local restaurants offers something for almost any palate, from pasta to sushi, and a 16- screen theater provides first-run movies.
