The staff and management at Avery Greene Honda are proud to serve its hometown of Vallejo, CA, as well as nearby customers in the San Francisco Bay area! Read here for an overview of Vallejo, including some history about our city and information about our current culture!
The city of Vallejo takes up just under 50 square miles to the northeast of San Francisco. Located on the San Pablo Bay, Vallejo is the largest city in Solano County and neighbors the Bay-area cities of Benicia, Napa, American Canyon and Fairfield.
Following the acquisition of California by the United States in the late 1840s, the city of Vallejo was founded in 1851 and named after Mexican General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo. The city briefly served as the state capital of California in 1852 and 1853, although the capital was quickly moved to Benicia after the city had difficulties constructing a capitol building.
Today, Vallejo is a thriving Bay-area city that boasts plenty of attractions, entertainment, and commerce for guests and residents alike. Vallejo is home the Six Flags Discovery Kingdom theme park, the Vallejo Naval & Historical Museum and plenty of historic 19th-century buildings and homes. Vallejo also offers plenty of shops, restaurants, and stores ranging from general needs to local interests.
Vallejo is home to the former Mare Island Naval Shipyard, the oldest naval facility on the West Coast of the United States. Following the shipyard’s closure in 1993, the city has put forth measures to develop Mare Island, including building residential neighborhoods and setting aside space for industrial and commercial development.
Notable celebrities from or currently living in Vallejo include MLB player Bill Buckner, musician Johnny Otis, NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon, and Olympian Barton Williams.
