Rio Vista (California)

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Rio Vista is in the California Delta in Solano County in the Sacramento Valley region of California.

Rio Vista sits on the northwest bank of the Sacramento River. It's a quiet town which is beginning to suffer from overdevelopment of tract houses built to house the overflowing populations of Sacramento and the Bay Area. Ships headed from the ocean to Sacramento routinely pass by the waterfront.

Rio Vista briefly made international headlines during the 1980s when a wayward Humback Whale took it upon itself to swim upstream like some sort of crazed mutant salmon. The Whale spent about a week near Rio Vista before being led back to the ocean 100 miles away.

Do[edit][add listing]

  • Sandy Beach County Park, 2333 Beach Dr., (707) 374-2097. An enjoyable sandy beach good for small children, sunbathing, or picnicking. Swimming is banned due to the close proximity of the ship channel about 100 ft. offshore (ships in small rivers tend to suck in a lot of water when moving, which is very dangerous to swimmers).

Events[edit]

  • Bass Festival, is held during the second weekend of October
