VALLEJO
California, U.S.A.
THE LARGEST CITY IN SOLANO COUNTY
Welcome to Vallejo, California.
Vallejo is the largest city in Solano County with a population of around 116,000. The city was named in honor of Spanish General Guadalupe Vallejo, who was a military commander, politician and rancher, and responsible for shaping the transition of Alta California from Mexico to the U.S state of California. The nearby city Benicia is named after his wife, Francisca Benicia Carrillo. Situated on the northeastern shore of Pablo Bay, this gorgeous seaside community is home to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom and the old Mare Island Naval Shipyard, as well as Solano Community College and Touro University California. Visitors can easily take the ferry over from San Francisco through the terminal on Mare Island, and the easy access from the big metro has made Vallejo known as a gateway town; making it popular among those who like the vicinity to the bigger city. Vallejo is built on a magnificent site with rolling hills and a rich harbor, and thanks to its waterfront location it has brought in a plethora of different cultures throughout the years. In fact, it is one of the most diverse cities in all of California! The city is lively with festivals, performances and art galleries. For instance, you have the Pista Sa Nyon-Filipino Cultural Festival, a celebration of the strong Filipino culture alive in the city. There's also the Native American Pow Wow, which is traditionally an event that Indians have used to summon the sun for thousands of years. The Empress theatre is a restored historic venue where you can catch a ton of performances, and the Vallejo Naval & Historical Museum holds exhibitions where you can learn more about the history of Vallejo and the U.S. Navy. The city has plenty of shopping and dining, and thanks to the Baylink Ferry Service, the stores of San Francisco's PIER 39 is just a hop away!
