Attractions

Olive Pit
  2156 Solano St.  Everything olive is found here, in the town that is the center of the olive industry in Northern California.  Taste a vast variety of flavored olives (the best being a toss up between the greens stuffed with pimento and almond and the greens stuffed with garlic), pick up some car snacks, or chow down on fast food.
