The name "Vallejo" is locally pronounced in a confused hybrid of Spanish and English. In literal English this ought to be pronounced "vuh LAY joe". In Spanish this ought to be "bah YAY hoe". But locally it's pronounced "vuh LAY hoe".
Vallejo is accessible from elsewhere in the SF Bay Area by way of Hwy 37, Hwy 29, and I-80.
