MPI Perspective - Spring 2018 - 24
An Ideal Hub
estled in the heart of Northern California, amid rolling hills
and farmland, you'll discover some of the Golden State's bestkept secrets at your fingertips in Fairfield.
Located 45 miles from both San Francisco and Sacramento and
just 15 miles from the world-famous Napa Valley, visitors and locals
alike often find Fairfield's open spaces, quiet country roads, and acres
of thriving vineyards a welcome contrast to the nearby metropolitans.
Fairfield is best known for being home to two iconic attractions,
the Jelly Belly Factory and Anheuser-Busch Brewery. Both offer
exciting and delicious tours for all ages, as well as meeting spaces for
visitors combining work with play.
Did you know it can take up to two weeks to make a single Jelly
Belly jellybean? Learn all the secrets to how Jelly Belly creates its
famous bean on a free self-guided tour! For an extra sweet experience,
the 'Jelly Belly University' tour takes visitors to the factory floor.
Suisun Valley is just one of the many hidden gems in and around
Fairfield. Step outside and discover the adventures awaiting you and
your team. Hike the trails at Rockville Hills Regional Park, race gocarts around the track at Driven Raceway, or ride the roller coasters
at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.
With Sacramento, San Francisco and the
Napa Valley all within an hour's drive, the
travel possibilities and adventures in
and around Fairfield are endless.
Where to Meet
Whether your client is a
group hosting an association
meeting at an area hotel or a
company planning a retreat in
the grand ballroom of the worldfamous Jelly Belly Factory, Fairfield
has meeting spaces and venues
that will make your event successful,
inspiring, and fun.
Many of Fairfield's 18 hotels have meeting spaces and other
amenities that can accommodate groups both large and small. Two
of our larger hotels, the Hilton Garden Inn and Courtyard by Marriott,
have ballrooms that split into breakout rooms for workshops or team
building. Guests can also gather inside social lobbies to network,
brainstorm, and enjoy a drink or two from the café or bar. Whether
you're bringing a dozen people or several hundred to Fairfield, we have
space for you.
Think Outside the Boardroom
This region also has a thriving wine country in Suisun Valley,
delectable olive oil tastings, local breweries and tap rooms, beautiful
outdoor parks, a natural marsh, and a rich history dating back
hundreds of years.
Spend the day wine tasting in the rustic and picturesque Suisun
Valley, a growing wine region that includes over a dozen family-owned
tasting rooms. Suisun Valley received its American Viticulture Area
(AVA) designation in 1982, just months after its famous neighbor, Napa
Valley, but you will not find the large crowds or traffic here.
Combine work with play and have your meeting or retreat at one
of Fairfield's memorable attractions!
Enjoy gorgeous views of vineyards or olive groves with meetings
at Il Fiorello Olive Oil Company, Vezer Family Vineyard, or Wooden
Valley Winery. Play bocce ball at BackRoad Vines, or enjoy a round
of golf at Paradise Valley or Rancho Solano golf courses once your
meeting ends. Driven Raceway, a premiere indoor kart-racing facility,
is a great place for team building.
Later, enjoy lunch or dinner in historic downtown Fairfield, where you
will find an explosion of flavors, international dining, and tap rooms.
