Vast swathes of natural beauty in Fairfield

This is one of the major scenic locations in this part of California, sprawling for well over 600 acres, and encompassing sweeping grassland, dense woods, and a wide, placid lake. It’s particularly loved by mountain bikers, thanks to the satisfyingly rugged trails, while having a picnic by the water is always a pleasure. If golf is your thing, you can get into the swing of things at some great public courses: Paradise Valley and Rancho Solano. Try not to be distracted by the backdrop as you play alongside picturesque oak trees and winding creeks.

Attractions for everyone in Fairfield

Whether you’re looking for family-friendly fun, or fancy the more genteel pleasure of a Californian wine tour, Fairfield ticks all the boxes. Speaking of wine, you’ll want to visit the vineyards of the Suisan Valley, which is blissfully serene compared to the ever-bustling Napa. Here, you can meet winemakers, sample the region’s famous Petite Sirah, learn the art of blending wine, and tuck into artisanal food while overlooking the lush landscape. Here with the kids? Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is just a short drive from Fairfield, and features superhero-themed thrill rides, as well as letting you feed giraffes and go swimming with dolphins. And don’t forget to go on a self-guided tour of the Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield, which is as tasty as it is eye-opening.

Summer bliss in Fairfield

If there’s one season that suits Fairfield, it’s summer. This is the time when the rolling hills of the nearby wine country are aglow with the sun, with the vivid greens and purples of the vines making the landscape dreamy and enchanting. It’s also a good time for mingling with fellow wine buffs, or simply enjoying the hiking and mountain biking possibilities. Of course, you could also come towards the end of summer and early fall if you’re curious to see the wine harvest in full flow.

Rural escapes near Fairfield

Downtown Fairfield has a lot to recommend it, with its old timey atmosphere, independent stores, and array of eateries serving up everything from Chinese food to tacos. But Fairfield’s position in the heart of Solano County means the wider, rural beauty of the region demands to be seen. To the west lie the undulating hills of the Suisan Valley, which are ravishing in the sun, while to the south you’ll find Rush Ranch, where you can go hiking by scenic marshlands and spy darting birds and cute, frolicking otters.
