Live and Play in American Canyon
In 2008, Fortune Magazine named American Canyon number 11 of the 100 Best Places to Live and Launch a Business. With a city council that encourages new industries, and by appropriating more than 300 acres for business development, entrepreneurs enjoy less restrictive zoning laws than the rest of the Napa Valley. A key reason new business continued to open in spite of the current recession.
