Vallejo is named for General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo and the neighboring city of Benicia is named for his wife. 

The city is home to the Six Flags Discovery Kingdom theme park, the now-defunct Mare Island Naval Shipyard, and the regional office for Region 5 of the United States Forest Service. Ferry service runs from a terminal on Mare Island Strait to San Francisco.
