Things to do in Fairfield on a Winter day

With shorter days and a crisp chill, it’s easy to want to stay indoors on a cold, winter day. But if you venture outside you will see – there is still much to do in Fairfield!

 

 Go on a free tour at Jelly Belly! Whether you are a new visitor or a returning friend, our famous attraction offers lots of indoor fun.

The Jelly Belly Candy Company is the home of Jelly Belly jelly beans and more than 50 other fine confections. The tour is always free – and the samples are too! The self-guided tour is open daily, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m, (with the visitor center open to 5 p.m.) and is a great place to spend a couple of hours with your family. As you walk above the factory, take a deep breath and smell the aroma of peach, cinnamon, pineapple, or whatever flavor is being cooked that day. The quarter-mile walkway is filled with displays, interactive exhibits, and entertaining videos. Learn the secrets to how Jelly Belly creates the legendary Jelly Belly jelly bean, and discover why it can take up to two weeks to make a single bean. After your tour, visit the Jelly Belly Cafe, where you can enjoy a pizza or cheeseburger shaped like a jelly bean! 

Visitors 21 and over are also invited to enjoy Jelly Belly’s Wine & Chocolate Experience, featuring six Suisun Valley wines paired with delectable Jelly Belly chocolates, fudge, and sweet treats.

 

 

 

 

Rain or shine, our Suisun Valley and Green Valley wineries and tasting rooms are open all winter! In fact, Vezer Family Vineyard offers free tastings on all rainy days.  Altogether, this region is home to over a dozen tasting rooms and six of those – Wooden Valley Winery, G V Cellars, BackRoad Vines, Il Fiorello Olive Oil Company and Vezer’s Mankas Gardens and Blue Victorian – are open daily! Our blue skies and rolling hills, which will soon be a bright green in winter, provide a beautiful backdrop as visitors travel the valley “loop”. It will not be long before the yellow mustard covers the valley floor. Although the vines are dormant for winter, Suisun Valley is as beautiful and welcoming as ever. 

Fairfield is a destination full of flavor! In addition to our wineries, Fairfield is also home to locally-owned breweries and tap rooms. The largest is Heretic Brewery, open seven days a week, that features over 20 beers on tap and a full kitchen. All ages are welcome in their tasting room, known as the Confessional.

Scandia Family Fun Center has indoor and outdoor fun for all ages. Altogether, it’s NINE acres of entertainment for the entire family. While some of their popular attractions are outdoors, – mini-golf, go karts, and batting cages are all great fun when the sun is shining – Scandia has a HUGE indoor arcade area. There are over 200 games to choose from, including classics and cutting edge video technology. There are pinball machines and prize redemption games – and you should see the prizes available! Scandia also has an indoor lasertag facility where you can team up with up to 25 other players and battle in a futuristic space station.
