You only have to walk around downtown Rio Vista to notice the many beautiful older homes that line the historic streets of town. Each of these homes has its own history, built upon those individuals who either built or lived in the houses throughout the years.
You can take a Self-guided Walking Tour to view the Historical Homes in Rio Vista. Most of these homes were built in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Refer to the map on the Self-guided Walking Tour for the locations of the historical houses and other historical buildings. Maps are also available at Kiosks and at the Visitor Center.
