Vacaville offers both exceptional value and affordability, located about half way between Sacramento and San Francisco. With a population 100,000, Vacaville is a city between some of CA’s largest hubs. It has a small town feel with all the amenities one would need and love. Low crime rates, affordable living and high-quality schools make this a great location for many to call home. The location boasts many types of recreational activities such as Lake Berryessa, which is commonly visited for fishing, water skiing, hiking as well as other adventures. Being located 1.5-2 hours from the mountains and the ocean also provides a great get away for avid skiers, hikers and beach goers. Napa Valley is not far for anyone looking to explore wine country and with UC Davis only 25 minutes away, the area continues to grow.
