About Rio Vista, CA

Located at the tip of Solano County, the community of Rio Vista is one of the oldest in the county. The original settlement was established in 1858, by History3Col. Nathan H.

Once established the settlement grew rapidly and fishing became the prime industry.

A River Runs Through It

Perhaps it’s the allure of river towns as they were described by Mark Twain in works like “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” and “Tom Sawyer”.  Maybe it’s a deeply rooted longing that all humans have, whether they grew up in a bustling city or an endless track of modern suburbia to enjoy a slower paced existence.  Perhaps it’s just the natural deceleration that time seems to have in a place where a mighty tract of water moves slowly and inexorably towards the sea, season after season. Whatever the attraction is, talk to people who have lived in Rio Vista for most of their life and you’ll get the sense that Peace is as prevalent in the hearts of local residents as picket fences are abundant on the back streets of this sleepy river city.

Come see for yourself why we call Rio Vista a “Diamond in the Rough”.

If you tell most folks from anywhere outside the Delta you’re from Rio Vista, the usual response is “Never heard of it, where is it?” To reply “It’s about mid-way between Sacramento andDowntown_Rio_Vista San Francisco” doesn’t seem to invoke much recognition. But tell them “It’s the town that ‘Humphrey the Humpback Whale’ came to visit back in the fall of 1985 and in May of 2007 where the Humpback mother and daughter dubbed ‘Delta and Dawn’ got stuck too…” and suddenly everyone seems to know exactly where you’re from! The fact is, that aside from a few celebrity whales once having “vacationed” here and the annual Bass Festival Derby, there is nothing particularly famous nor “infamous” about Rio Vista at all. And that’s just the way most folks here prefer it. If there were a “just the right size” contest for American townships, Rio Vista would most certainly make the finals with:
