Rio Vista (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.
