Located within a short distance of Sacramento, Vacaville has a population of just under 100,000 residents. The homes are priced nearly 25% lower than some of the properties in other parts of California, including Los Angeles. Despite the lower price range, there are still plenty of beautiful properties to choose from, some of which have been newly constructed and are more modern. Properties in the city tend to come with at least three or four bedrooms, garages and front lawns.
There are a few neighborhoods in the city that are known as the safest, such as Bucktown, Ferry Road and Alamo Drive. Although these neighborhoods have relatively low crime rates, there is not much crime happening in the city as a whole either. The cost of living in Vacaville is slightly cheaper than the cost of living in the state of California. The summers are warm and the winters are just right, with the average temperature falling at about 50 degrees. It is not hard to find plenty of local amenities, such as libraries, convenience stores, fitness centers and malls. While public transit is an option, residents may choose to walk because they live close to several of the amenities.
Several dining options are offered to residents. Popular eateries include the Merchant & Main Grill & Bar, Los Reyes Restaurante and Gourmet Exprezz. After grabbing a bite to eat at one of these popular spots, residents may head over to Miss Darlas or the City Sports Bar & Grill for a few drinks. When trying to keep busy, there is much to see and do for everyone. A visit to the Vacaville Museum offers an enriching and educational experience about the city and its rich history. Those who would prefer spending time outdoors could take a trip to Andrews Park, which is conveniently located right next to the George Duke Sports Center and the Art League & Gallery. The park is not too far from the Brenden Theatres and a popular eatery known as Tacos Jalisco. There are multiple high schools and elementary schools in the area, which is perfect for the residents who have children. The graduation rate from high school is at 82 percent for the city, which is a bit higher than the state average. Having access to good schools, great restaurants, local parks and other sources of entertainment makes it easy for residents to love Vacaville.
