Vacaville CA Community Information by HomeSwing Real Estate

A robust city with small town flavor

Vacaville is a city located in Solano County, California, between Sacramento (33 miles to the northeast) and San Francisco (53 miles to the southwest). It is linked to both cities via Interstate Highway 80. The City was founded in 1852 by William McDaniel and was named after Juan Manuel Vaca, one of its earliest settlers. Incorporated in 1892, Vacaville has transformed itself over the years from a small agricultural community to a robust and progressive city which still retains a small town flavor due to the level of community involvement by its residents.

Rich in fertile farmland, the city was at one time a Pony Express stop and was home to many large farms and produce companies. Modern-day Vacaville is best known for its retail shopping, and also for its numerous community events throughout the year, including the annual Fiesta Days and Fourth of July celebrations, its 'Tribute to Seniors,' and free summer concerts at the downtown Creekwalk. Other nearby cities include Napa, Fairfield, Winters, Dixon and Suisun City.
