Vacaville is nearly half way between Sacramento and San Francisco on I-80.  Vacaville is the third largest city in Solano County.

The city holds annual Vacaville Fiesta Days in May, which includes a parade that features the public school marching bands, gymnasts, and even an electric car showcase, among other things. Other sites for tourists include the Vacaville Premium Outlets and the Nut Tree, which is home to a train for children and even a life-size checkerboard, as well as numerous stores and places to eat. Every December, the city holds a Festival of Trees in the ice skating rink and the Tree Lighting Ceremony in which residents of Vacaville gather in downtown to see a 50-foot (15 m) tree illuminate and enjoy festive music played by the Jepson Band, hot chocolate, and horse-drawn carriage rides.
