Discover Dixon, CA
Dixon is a city in Solano County, California, which was incorporated in 1878. The first settlement near where Dixon now stands was Silveyville, established by Elijah S. Silvey in 1852. Silvey built and operated an inn and saloon along a well-traveled stagecoach route made famous by the California Gold Rush. By 1865, it had expanded to include a general store, post office, and a blacksmith. The arrival of the Vaca Valley Railroad upset the citizens of Silveyville when they learned that the line would not pass through their town. Instead, it crossed the property of Thomas Dickson who initiated a new settlement where downtown Dixon is located today. Settlers in Silveyville moved their homes and buildings by flat car to Dicksonville in order to be closer to the rail tracks. Dickson insisted that the community be officially named Dicksonville but the arrival of a package in 1872 was addressed to “Dixon” and the name stuck. Dickson tried for two years to have the change reversed but a county recorder in 1874 filed the new city maps under the name “Dixon”, stating that it was easier to remember.
Book an RV in Solano County and you are one step closer to exploring the majestic rolling hills of northern California. There are some other towns and cities worth exploring too, such as Dunnigan, which was originally named Antelope by two early settlers, J. S. Copp and Jolin Wilson, but later changed to Dunnigan after A.W. Dunnigan, who opened an inn under his last name. Roseville was originally named “Grinders” (for unknown reasons), then “Junction” when the railroad arrived in 1864, “Roseville Junction” after that and finally “Roseville” when the city was incorporated in 1909. Lodi produced much of the San Joaquin County wheat crop in 1880, which at 3.4 million bushels, was the largest in the world. Antioch, in addition to the Californian city, is the name of eleven other cities also located in the United States. Yountville is thought by many to be Napa Valley's culinary heart and was the location of Napa Valley's first planted grapevines. Renting a Dixon motorhome rental is how you will be able to see these places and anything else you desire.
The Great Outdoors
Lake Berryessa is a reservoir and part of a wildlife reserve and nature reclamation project. Visitors to the area can enjoy hiking and mountain biking, kayaking, canoeing or paddleboarding, or more. There are pit toilets located intermittently throughout and fishing and hunting are allowed with the proper licenses. The park has a visitor center that can answer your questions about the geography, animal life, and recreational opportunities (bird and animal observation are also popular activities within the region). Keep your Dixon travel trailer rental nearby for a post-activity coffee and refrigeration for those fish you're going to bag.
Grizzly Island Wildlife Area is a barebones wildlife observation refuge that provides recreational opportunities to the public, such as fishing and nature tours. Hunting for tule elk, rabbits, and some bird species like dove and pheasant is allowed in season; hikers and photographers have a chance to observe the resident wildlife and the marsh that accommodates and supports them. Your Dixon camper rental is the perfect photography blind from which to capture those shots.
Sacramento Valley National Cemetery is one of seven national cemeteries in the state of California. It was opened in 2006 and received its formal dedication in 2007; burial within the cemetery is restricted to armed forces personnel who have served their country honorably and their immediate families. The graveyard has a memorial pathway that passes nine separate memorials honoring the soldiers buried there.
