Sweet Sun And Breezes in Suisun City

What I love about Suisun is the quite, and secluded town that it is. The downtown area has a beautiful lake view, with the added benefit of low crim, so I tend to go out on runs without really being bothered. On the other hand, I would warn about the occasional pit bull you might find walking around. Often they can be aggressive, and a hazard within themselves.

The one thing I would advise above all is to have a car. In my experiences it is put alwyss the easiest to find work if your don’t have one. Work is tuoicallg spread out behind the city, and public transit stops running early which could cause concern for the trip home.

Despite of these short comings, there a plenty of trails and sparks thrown about. Great for picnicks or spending a day off side of the house. Situated between San Francisco and Sacramento, you have two options for entertainment, because there’s not much beyond the trails and parks in my opinion.
