Steamy summers and mild winters means Antioch is more antifreeze

Bright, sunny summers and mild winters with little rainfall, Antioch does pretty well in the weather stakes. The city has a semi-arid climate with hot, dry summers when temperatures sometimes rocket to over 100 degrees. It starts to cool down a little in fall, and there's the odd chance of rain, so it's worth packing a light jacket and an umbrella. For the best choice of Antioch vacation rentals, book ahead of the Contra Costa County Fair in June, which draws thousands to the city.
