Summer Heat Brings About Opportunity For Sun, Fun, Stay, Play in Fairfield…

One would not know that we are in the middle of summer. With it actually raining today and a high of 68' one might start to really think about that whole global warming theory.  Looking ahead I noticed this weekend June 28, through the 30th is bringing 95+ degree weather. "Oh Joy" I hear it now, what will you do this weekend with this heat wave coming on?

1). Take the family to Allan Witt Park. With temps reaching close to 100' the pool is a fun way to stay cool and the whole family can have fun. Bring a lunch and have a picnic in the park.

Swim indoors all winter and cool off all summer at the Aquatics Complex at Allan Witt Park. A virtual tour and detailed information is available regarding hours of operationpricespartiesfitness classesswim lessons.  For more information please call 707.399.1999 or 707.428.7726.

2). Nothing says "Fun" like cycling, hiking, or horse riding the many trails in and around Fairfield. Rockville Park is one of the best places to start if you have never been there here is some basic information you should know:

The park is 633 beautiful acres of grasslands and oak woodlands, with a dense mixed broadleaf forest. The rich, biological and diverse habitats provide shelter to a variety of wildlife that makes the park their home.

With the Park's popularity comes the responsibility of treating the land in a way that minimizes the impact to it. For your enjoyment, the stewardship of our environment and the safety of all, please cooperate with the following common sense guidelines so that we ensure the pristine beauty for future generations:

 

  • Deposit all trash in receptacles

  • Stay on authorized trails

  • Authorized campfires or barbecues only

  • Dogs must be leashed and cleaned up after

  • Helmets required for all bicyclists

  • Pedestrians have right of way

  • Supervised trail construction only

3). Another real "Fun" summer activity is driving through the vast Suisun Valley Wine country exploring the many tasting wineries.

A rustic destination, Suisun Valley is a fun place for visitors who are searching for world-class wines, home grown farm products, and a beautiful, agricultural landscape, without the crowds. We’re an off the beaten path wine country destination which enjoys sharing all that we have to offer our neighbors and visitors who come from both near and afar.

The Suisun Valley appellation was established in 1982, and is nestled between two coastal mountain ranges, southeast of Napa Valley. We offer a very diverse agricultural region. We have approximately 10 wineries, our vineyards grow 23 different wine grape varieties, and we’re best known for our Petite Sirah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. We have many farm stands, which sell everything from fruits and vegetables, to dried fruits, nuts and freshly produced olive oils.

All of our fruits and vegetables are grown in the excellent soils located between the eastern slope of Mount George Range and Twin Sisters, on family farms. Many of these farms have been handed down for generations. We have regular, seasonal events that are fun and laid-back, while we offer visitors our world-class wines, as well as our farm fresh, diverse fruits and vegetables. Check out the www.VisitFairfieldCA.com website for details on upcoming weekend events at the many wineries.

4). Get Out' Take your boat to the world famous Delta. Just minutes out highway 12, the Delta offers 1000's of miles of boating waterways that will refresh your hot weekend. Not to mention the many different Lunch & Dinner spots along the water. One could "Bar-Hop" all weekend.

Some of the historic river towns are little changed from the Gold Rush era when paddlewheel steamboats came piping their arrival with the steam-driven calliope. Drawbridges yawn open to let boating traffic pass, you cross some waterways on lumbering cable-drawn car ferries, and the postman delivers mail by boat.

For all its rural charm, the California Delta caters to visitors’ needs. It boasts over 100 marinas and waterside resorts, full-hookup RV parks and campgrounds. There are quaint waterside restaurants for dining, grocery stores for provisions, bait and tackle shops, and over 50 boat launching facilities. Public parks and bank-fishing sites are numerous. To get details and to plan where you might want to start and end up. Check out their Chamber of Commerce site http://www.californiadelta.org/

5). Finally, the kids will love you to death if you pack up the family and head to Six Flags Discovery park. What better way to beat the heat than have the wind blowing in your face from the many radical roller coasters and exciting rides that make the park one of Northern California's top theme parks. Before you go, check out some must know information the park provides:
