Vacaville vacation rentals

Vacaville beckons from the California hills

Vacaville is a useful stepping stone on the way between Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay Area. But more than that, it's also welcoming and warm, steeped in agricultural history, and comes dotted with a series of rumbling rollercoaster parks that are sure to keep the kids smiling through those long, sunny Californian days. Throw in a clutch of grand country mansions and rustic Vacaville vacation rentals in the nearby hills, and it's easy to see why you might just want to linger here a while.

Vacaville oozes small-town charm

If you're looking to taste the chilled vibes of small-town California, then it’s likely the pursuits of Vacaville will take your fancy. Maytime parades and pageants take place with the annual Fiesta Days parties, while locals also host the yearly Festival of Trees at Christmas time – think photos with Santa Claus and encounters with elves. What's more, wine country is just a stone's throw away, which means it's also possible to glug reds, whites, and fizzy bottles in the confines of the Napa Valley on day-long excursions.

Enjoy the laid-back local life in Vacaville

Vacaville locals love to hop between the emporiums of the Vacaville Premium Outlets, hitting the high-street stores and stylists, all before crossing the freeway to find the Nut Tree Family Park. The latter has up-and-down rollercoasters, offering a chance to get the adrenaline pumping on rickety Wild West-style rides. Prefer the great outdoors? No problem – the Vaca Mountains beckon nearby too, hiding oak groves and rolling farms, not to mention the empty banks and picnic spots of Lake Berryessa.

Vacaville is lovely in the warm summer months

Vacaville vacation rentals don’t see the same surge in demand during the pleasant spring and summer months as those in some of the other destinations around Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay Area. That's great news if you're looking to find somewhere that's both quiet and easy on the wallet, not to mention still packed with family-friendly attractions, and close to wonderful backcountry in the Napa Valley. Search for places to stay between May and September if that sounds like your sort of thing.

Vacaville nestles on the ridges of the Vaca Mountains

The Vaca Mountains are what cut off little Vacaville from the bustling coastal reaches of northern California and the sprawl of the San Francisco Bay Area. Like a protecting wall, they keep the wildflower meadows and undulating hills that surround the city a secret from many travelers. You can discover Vacaville vacation rentals hidden up on those peaks, or within striking distance of other regional wildernesses, like the Grizzly Island Wildlife Area, where the Suisun Marsh houses rare eagles, endemic asters, and oodles of other waterfowl.
