Vallejo Hotel Near Theme Park, Universities, and Wineries
Visible from the Courtyard by Marriott Vallejo Napa Valley, the Medusa roller coaster at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom seems to taunt passersby to try and handle its 65 mph drops. The coaster and the park's other rides attract thrill seekers, and its oceanarium and wildlife shows entertain with dolphin feedings and an African elephant. Here, entertainment varies from feeding giraffes to spiraling along the 15-story tall Superman ride that opens this spring. No hotel is closer to the park than the Marriott Vallejo Napa Valley, which also sits within a short drive of several local attractions, including Touro University, California Maritime Academy, Infineon Raceway, and several wineries.
Courtyard by Marriott's design focuses on customer service, with conveniences such as express check in and free WiFi access in all rooms and common areas. At the front desk, clerks provide concierge services, arranging shuttles to the airport and dry cleaning for delicate superhero costumes. Before an adventure through Napa Valley, guests can kick-start their morning with a buffet-style or made-to-order breakfast at the onsite café. Come nighttime, the hotel lounge makes for a cozy spot to unwind with cocktails.
Vallejo, California: Bayside Town Near Napa Valley Wineries
Located on San Pablo Bay's northern corner, Vallejo's a scenic ferry ride away from San Francisco and a short drive north to Napa and Sonoma Valleys' famous wineries. The area's grape-growing climate has made Napa home to more than 300 wineries. But beyond their popular tastings, many wineries also support Napa's cultural scene by hosting musical concerts and art shows.
Vallejo's Six Flags Discovery Kingdom features one of the world's first floorless roller coasters, Medusa, which snakes seven inversions. Live shows starring African elephants, walruses, and killer whales elevate this theme park beyond the adrenaline-pumping rides. The new Odin's Temple of the Tiger showcases the park's famous white Bengal tigers, with an underwater viewing pool where swimming cats dive for food.
