Welcome to Vallejo
Historic, quiet, adventurous, and above all, home sweet home.
On the sparkling northeastern shore of the San Pablo Bay in the shade of the vast Coastal California Mountains, Vallejo is only a 40-minute drive to the city of San Francisco, perfect for those that work on the Peninsula and desire easy commutes both to and from their offices. Positioned at the southern end of the Napa River, Vallejo residents enjoy temperatures that can often drop 10 degrees below those of their inland neighbors, thanks to their close proximity to the cooler waters of the San Francisco Bay.
Once named the most diverse city in America by Brown University, Vallejo residents are lucky enough to enjoy dozens of different cultures just beyond their own main street. Asian fusion, soul food, seafood, and Mexican restaurants are plentiful, all offering their own modern takes on traditional dishes. Parks, hiking trails, galleries, and golf courses ensure there is never a shortage of weekend activities. Lifelong memories are made in this home that few ever want to leave.
What to Love
- Golf courses are plentiful throughout the neighborhood, with Hiddenbrooke Golf Course and Blue Rock Springs Golf Club being some of the top choices among locals.
- Glen Cove Waterfront Park offers seaside views, fishing, hike and bike trails, and picnic tables to enjoy scenic outdoor meals.
- Vallejo is home to the Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Amusement Park, featuring high-speed roller coasters, other more family-friendly rides, live shows, exhilarating performances, animal attractions, and dozens of restaurants.
Conveniently located an equal distance between both San Francisco and the California capital city of Sacramento, Vallejo residents enjoy their well-deserved weekends out of the office and in the great outdoors, at one of the many local golf courses, parks, country clubs, or the Glen Cove Center. A top choice for a group outing is a long day well-spent at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. Close proximity to Napa Valley also means low-hassle road trips to the California wine country.
Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
Vallejo California is centrally located within close proximity to several large freeways and major thoroughfares. Most quick errands can be taken care of at the Glen Cove Center. Busy days come to an end and allow Vallejo citizens to retreat upward into the hills at one of the area’s several well-loved golf courses. The Grill at Hiddenbrooke Golf Course is the perfect place to re-fuel after a day spent on the driving range, or to celebrate the end of a long week with a formal sit-down meal served in style. The weekend brunch is also popular, with bloody Marys highly-requested all day long.
More low-key days begin at Moschetti Café, known for their organic, fair-trade coffees, and French-style pastries. A special offering of theirs is the macarons, baked fresh every day. A plethora of flavors is available, including chocolate and vanilla, salted caramel, and more.
Special occasions can be enjoyed at Michael Warring. An intimate space, this choice eatery highlights carefully-prepared New American dishes, with a thoughtfully-paired wine list. Their seven-course menu continuously changes with seasonal ingredient availability. On Thursdays, a 12-course menu is specially prepared, with an optional wine pairing.
Things To Do
In addition to the wildlife to be viewed at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, the Mare Island Preserve offers Vallejo citizens of all ages a chance to learn about their local ecosystem and the importance of conservation for future generations. Magnificent natural habitats and panoramic views stretch across the county line creating never-ending views of the distant mountains and hills.
