You’ll find dozens of shoe stores alone, including Adidas, Aldo, Asics, Bass, Clark’s, Cole Haan, Crocs, and Converse (and that’s just from A through C!)—not to mention designer fashions, sportswear, leather goods and more at this open-air center just off I-80, the main east-west corridor between San Francisco and the Sierra Nevada range. Shop for deals on such iconic brands as Coach, Tumi, The North Face, Le Creuset, and Banana Republic.
To streamline your shopping, the Vacaville Premium Outlets offers amenities such as a children’s play area, baby changing stations, and electric vehicle charging stations. If you find yourself in need of a pick-me-up, Starbuck’s and Kristin’s Coffee Corner are onsite, along with food at DJ’s Grill and Deli and treats at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.
While you’re here, Vacaville and Solano County offer a number of other nice diversions. The nearby Suisun Valley is home to a booming winemaking industry; drop by Blue Victorian Vineyards or Wooden Valley Winery for a tour and tasting, or, right in downtown Vacaville’s Town Square, stop by Cuvee E, a wine bar specializing in local vintages. There are lots of ways to take advantage of the region’s ideal climate and terrain as well. Visit Browns Valley Open Space Preserve to go bouldering, or visit dog-friendly, 470-acre Lagoon Valley Park to go hiking, have a picnic, or spend an afternoon fishing.
