Formally incorporated in 1903, Fairfield is a thriving community where healthy families and strong businesses can flourish. The county seat since 1858, Fairfield represents a diverse, bustling economy in the heart of Solano County.
In Fairfield, small town values remain, but we’re not just an attractive, tree-lined, bedroom community serving the San Francisco and Sacramento metropolitan areas. Our strategic location, extensive transportation networks, readily available and value-priced properties, and proximity to Northern California's attractions, make Fairfield a prime location for commerce.
An excellent quality of life, low housing costs, and an array of retail options makes Fairfield an enjoyable place for families to live and work.
