Historic Vallejo

Home to the Academy since 1943, Vallejo's rich history can still be found throughout the city. An expansive waterfront leads the way into quiet neighborhoods filled with colorful, Victorian-style houses. Be sure to see if the historic Empress Theatre has something playing, or just browse the quaint shops that line Georgia street.

If your travels call you to the central Bay Area, you can take advantage of the brand-new transportation hub downtown. From there, you can take the ferry to San Francisco, an attraction in itself.
