A recent article published in the San Francisco Chronicle, ranked Fairfield as the fourth most diverse city in the Bay Area. Vallejo, Suisun City, and Oakland were ranked first, second, and third, respectively.
The article attributed the rankings to affordable suburban housing costs and Fairfield is no exception. According to Zillow, the median list price per square foot in Fairfield is $249, seventeen dollars lower than the Vallejo-Fairfield Metro average of $266, and about half of the San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward Metro average of $488.
Over the last few years, Fairfield has experienced tremendous growth with the expansion of its business parks and the opening of the Fairfield-Vacaville Train Station. With its low housing costs, ease of accessibility, pristine water supply, and friendly business practices, Fairfield continues to attract new businesses.
Fairfield is also becoming a dining destination for both locals and visitors alike with big names such as Texas Roadhouse, Habit Burger, and Mel’s Diner drawing hungry crowds. The heart of downtown continues to expand its offerings and features a wide variety of international and local fare including Saffron, Chez Soul, and Luigi’s, all of which have been featured on Channel 26’s “What’s Good” series. New restaurants including Fire Wings on North Texas, Heretic Brewery in the Western Business Park, and the Big H Deli in Cordelia have become fast favorites.
From the proud history of Travis Air Force Base to the breathtaking Suisun Valley, Fairfield has so much to offer. The heart of Fairfield is in its diversity, and that is what makes Fairfield truly special!
