What Bert Has To Say About Vallejo-Fairfield Metro Area


This area, known also as Solano County, is really a series of residential communities strung along I-80 as it heads east from the San Francisco Bay Area. The string starts with Vallejo (once a gritty port and navy town), which has transformed as a result of Bay Area crowding and high home prices into a fairly desirable commuter community. East across a narrow range of mountains, the land flattens again into the towns of Cordelia, Suisun City and the larger Fairfield and Vacaville.
