Rio Vista is in the
Sacramento Delta (1100 miles of waterways), roughly half
way between San Francisco and Sacramento on the Sacramento River.
It is about 100 miles from San Jose, 65 miles from San Francisco
and 48 miles from Sacramento. Rio Vista is on CA-12, which joins
I-80 in Fairfield and I-5 near Lodi.
Rio Vista is generally a few degrees warmer than the San Francisco Bay
Area with fog in the winter months and a steady breeze most summer afternoons
The thriving city of Rio Vista has a population of approximately
7,000, with about half of the population living in the Trilogy Active
Adult community. It is a half hour away from cities with populations
over 60,000. It has a small, but modern, civil aviation airport.
The city is small
and the residents are friendly.
It's a fun place to visit and a great place to live. Not
far from the Metropolises, but with sheep, goats, cows, eagles,
otters and other wild life all around.
There is a fine supermarket, pharmacy, medical clinic, general
shops and restaurants. The produce market is held on the lower half
of Main Street every Wednesday evening during the summer and Rio
Vista hosts an annual Bass Festival. The tiny community of Isleton,
a few miles away, has an annual Crawdad Festival. CA-12 runs to
Napa Valley, one of California's most popular tourist locations.
