Drive through Yolo County this time of year and you’ll view acres upon acres of sunflowers with their bright golden faces beaming back at you. Visitors travel from all over to view and photograph the sunflowers’ beauty, although they’re more than just a pretty face. Sunflowers play a part in many of our favorite foods and have an impact on the local and global economy.
And Visit Yolo wants to help you get the most out of your visit to our beautiful and dynamic area. With much more to see and do than just view sunflowers and maybe capture that selfie, this page is designed to encourage you to take in a little more of Yolo County’s “bounty” and visit safely and respectfully. We have compiled some great suggestions on where and how to capture that photo, experience our wine/beer/spirits/craft food offerings, diverse farm-to-fork and culinary options, outdoor adventures and, of course, comfortable lodging.
