Dixon, California Photos and Information

Dixon, the Heartland of California is the city with heart. More than an exit off Highway 80 where you can stop and buy gas for your car, there is a pleasant downtown region with shops, restaurants, a library, church and even a railroad stop where trains passenger trains pass through..  See California Trains & Trams


From the beautiful sculpture in the Women's Improvement Park of three children sitting on a log, to the fruit markets with old fashioned lettering and signage, Dixon exemplifies. Americana.  From its earliest beginnings Dixon has been a commercial and transportation hub in California's Sacramento Valley. Today Dixon, located in Solano County, the fastest growing of the nine San Francisco Bay Area counties along the Transcontinental railway corridor maintains its small town charm while providing easy access to the attractions of Sacramento and San Francisco, the Napa and Sonoma wine regions, the rugged Northern California Coast and Lake Tahoe.

And, located five miles away are the academic and cultural resources of the University of California at Davis. Reasonable land prices and an affordable cost of living make Dixon a perfect place to live, work, and to locate a business..

What do people do in Dixon for work? The numbers below obtained from official city sources show a diverse mix of both academic and non-skilled labor jobs.  The combination of these forces makes Dixon and the surrounding region fascinating in terms of their residents. For those passing through with a passion for soaking up the local flavor, don't be surprised that locals don't know what the fuss is all about. For those coming from tear down regions such as the Mediterranean-styled beach communities in Orange County, life could not be more uniform or boring than seeing the identical stucco properties in varying shades of beige.


The cities and town of northern are blessed with longevity and have not yet decided to tear down and rebuild. Brick homes with rose flower gardens lining streets with old-fashioned flag banners sporting cows and windmills make Dixon a place you can think about when you are sitting in your car in Southern California, waiting at your 10th stoplight for another 3-minute pause, forgetting where you were going and why..
