Fun Vacaville Activities and Attractions

There are many reasons why Vacaville is one of California’s most popular cities.

Easily accessible via airplane, train, or car, Vacaville is near some of the state’s best attractions. It also boasts a pleasant, Mediterranean climate that makes both outdoor and indoor fun possible year-round.

From alpaca farming to locally-grown produce, agriculture is abundant in Vacaville. Try visiting one of our local farms for plenty of family fun and outdoor adventure. Go hiking in lovely Lagoon Valley, which offers great views of the city and beyond. Explore historic downtown Vacaville or find a new favorite vintage at one of the first-class vineyards and wineries of the neighboring Suisun Valley wine country-- a short drive from Napa and Sonoma. Shoppers and diners can choose from hundreds of stores and restaurants, both national chains and locally owned favorites. Treat yourself to vibrant performing and visual arts, or visit one of Vacaville's many seasonal farm stands for fresh local flavor - the possibilities are endless in Vacaville!

You will find an array of outdoor activities to choose from, and the temperate climate means that you will be able to enjoy hiking, biking, and more year round in Vacaville! Aside from enjoying a hike in Lagoon Valley, you can also enjoy a walk through the classic Andrews Park, which hosts a range of events year-round. Don't forget about the Nut Tree Boulders, where you can try an adventurous climb!

If you’re in the mood for shopping, look no further than the Nut Tree or the Vacaville Premium Outlets where you will find a host of major retailers and local businesses. In the Vacaville Premium Outlets brands like Coach, Michael Kors and Kate Spade offer upscale retail at amazing outlet prices. Just over the freeway, the Nut Tree offers up an eclectic mix of local and big brands with stores like Jelly Belly, Apricot Lane, Best Buy, and Nordstrom Rack. Now rebuilt and modernized, the historic Nut Tree was established in 1921 and grew to become one of California's most legendary roadstops. The iconic train that once ferried visitors to and from the airport still runs in a loop around the family-friendly Nut Tree Plaza, where little ones can ride the carousel, use the play structures, or challenge each other to games of giant chess!
