Vallejo, CA

show info

A large city in the San Francisco Bay Area, Vallejo, California actually served as the state capital back in 1852 and 1853. The old capitol building would have been a historic landmark today, but it burned to the ground in the 1880s as the people of Vallejo waited for a fire truck to arrive by ferry. Nowadays, Vallejo is a well-connected city that gives residents easy access to the Bay Area and the scenic wine country to the north.

The regional Bay Area public transportation systems don’t reach as far north as Vallejo, making it difficult to get around the greater metropolitan area without a personal car. Solano County does, however, offer public transportation for travelers who are hoping to go green and save a little money on the commute. SolTrans busses cart passengers all around Vallejo and Benicia, as well as into neighboring Contra Costa County to the south. There is also a ferry that can take both passengers and their bikes all around the Bay Area.

The foundation manages a number of historic buildings on Mare Island, including a couple colonial revival mansions built in 1900 and 1901, and a smithery that was built in 1855. There are plans to open up access to a few of the ships as well, giving visitors the chance to stand on the decks of some of history's greatest ships.</p>
