Historic Vallejo, one of the earliest capitals of the Golden State, can truly say "Your Bay Area Fun Starts Here!" With a world-class theme park, high-speed ferry service to and from San Francisco and proximity to the California wine country, Vallejo is the perfect place to base your next visit to northern California.

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom has two special events planned for this fall and winter and even more exciting news for 2014. The park's Halloween spooktacular Fright Fest is back with more zombies than ever before. Halloween descends on Six Flags Discovery Kingdom as the park transforms for Thrills by Day and Fright by Night! Come enjoy five weekends of frightful fun and spine-tingling adventures bringing Northern California a new level of terror.

Beginning in late November, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom presents its seventh annual Holiday in the Park, a Northern California family tradition. As always, guests can enjoy their favorite holiday shows in addition to traditional festive attractions such as the popular giant snow hill, the display of a spectacular giant Christmas tree and millions of twinkling lights. It's northern California's biggest holiday celebration.

And it's official. In 2014, guests can enjoy the one-of-a-kind park all year long as Discovery Kingdom expands its calendar to operate year round, including weekends and holidays in both January and February. Already home to the best entertainment in Northern California, the park will introduce a brand new interactive water ride, the first of its kind at the park. The all-new Tsunami Soaker will be the newest addition to the lineup of family thrills, and this wet and wild attraction will provide an energetic and engaging experience like no other, drenching riders of all ages. Also returning in 2014 will be the parks SPLASHTASTIC show that received rave reviews this past summer.

Discovery Kingdom's Holiday in the Park is far from the only holiday event in Vallejo this year. The Fourth Annual Mad Hatter Holiday Festival is another unique celebration which features a parade with Art Cars from Burning Man, a masked ball and a grand homes tour.

This event also hosts the city's annual tree lighting and includes the annual lighted boat parade on Vallejo's beautiful waterfront. There's also the annual Christmas Concert at St. Peter's Chapel and the city's annual Kwanzaa Celebration.

Both birds and people will be flocking to Vallejo's Mare Island in early February to celebrate what has become a special annual ritual each winter: the 18th Annual San Francisco Bay Flyway Festival. The three-day event celebrates the return of over one million shorebirds and hundreds of thousands of ducks, geese and hawks which migrate through or winter in the San Francisco Bay Area. And while you are on the historic island, don't forget to visit the Mare Island Museum, St. Peter's Chapel with its priceless collection of Tiffany windows, or one of Mare Island's hidden gems, Alden Park with naval artifacts dating back to the Civil War.

Let Vallejo be your home when visiting Northern California. Location, affordability and accessibility makes this unique city one of the best overnight destinations from which to experience all the many great things there are to see and do in and around Solano County, the Bay Area, Wine Country and beyond.
