48 Hours in Fairfield, California

So much to see and do in Fairfield in just two days!

Day One: Taste of Fairfield



Morning: Kick off your adventures in Fairfield with a trip to the world-famous Jelly Belly Factory! The Jelly Belly Visitor Center in Fairfield is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and self-guided factory tours operate daily from 9:15 a.m to 4 p.m. Explore a real working factory and learn the secrets to how Jelly Belly creates its legendary Jelly Belly jelly bean. Discover why it can take up to two weeks to make a single bean! After your tour, enjoy a snack in the Jelly Belly Cafe or venture into the Very Cherry Room for the Chocolate & Wine Experience.



Local's Tip: Although the visitor center is open seven days a week, the factory is only in operation on the weekdays. Plan your visit Monday through Friday if you want to see the workers and machines in operation.



Mid-Morning: Just a mile away from the Jelly Belly Factory is the American Armory Museum, which brings history to life for its visitors with an impressive display of over 60 military vehicles and memorabilia that dates back over 100 years. The superstar of the fleet is General George S. Patton's 1943 Command Jeep! The museum is open 10 am to 3 pm Wednesday to Saturday and admission is always free.





Lunch in Downtown Fairfield: Our downtown is full of international flavor! Whether you're craving Italian, Mexican, Indian, Thai, or southern comfort food, we have a restaurant for you in downtown Fairfield. As you walk around the area, check out our iconic Fairfield sign, which has been in place above Texas Street since 1925.



Afternoon: Choose your adventure!
