Located just northeast of San Francisco and part of the greater Bay Area, Suisun City is one of California's most charming communities. With its award-winning waterfront, plenty of sunshine year round and a high quality of life, many California residents are giving Suisun apartments for rent a try. Nestled near California's wine country and the San Pablo Bay, this area has become one of the Golden State's fastest-growing towns due to its ideal, centralized location. Based on information from City-Data, residents are starting to take notice too, and the city has seen a population growth of more than 7 percent from 2000 to 2010.
The city is named after the Suisun Native American tribes that used to inhabit the area for thousands of years, but like many other towns in northern California, Suisun City didn't see its true growth until pioneers began to move westward during the California Gold Rush in the mid-1800s. After the Transcontinental Railroad came through Suisun City, the area saw a great period of expansive growth once industries were able to ship their goods - the most popular being grain - across the country. Today, the city has developed into a popular destination for nature lovers and water sports enthusiasts due to its stunning and wildlife-rich waterfront, but the area has also developed into a small commercial and residential hub.
There are plenty of historical attractions in the area, including the Western Railway Museum, a fantastic way to learn about the westward expansion and its influence in the area.
Many visitors and residents alike enjoy the self-guided Suisun Valley Harvest Trails that feature the delectable wine, restaurants, locally-grown produce and beautiful nature trails that have made the area famous.
