Vallejo - gateway to The Napa Valley Wine Country; attractions include Six Flags Marine World, Jelly Belly Factory, Budweiser Brewery, Sears Point Raceway, and access via a short but pleasant ferry ride to historic San Francisco and Pier 39 at Fisherman's Wharf.

Vallejo, CA is located on the east side of San Francisco Bay on Interstate 80. Touro University is located on Mare Island, a former U.S. Navy shipyard Location Address: 14th Street on Mare Island, Building H-86.

From Interstate 80, take the Vallejo exit for "Tennessee/Mare Island" and go about 2 miles through Vallejo on Tennessee. Tennessee becomes the "MareIsland Causeway" at a security booth.

Tell the security guard you are attending the post-polio meeting at Touro University. Then proceed across the Causeway and go 1 mile until the road ends at Cedar Avenue. Turn left on Cedar. Follow Cedar about 1.5 miles. The road will curve to the left and become 14th Avenue. Keep to the left on 14th.

Take the first driveway to the right to enter the campus. You'll see a blue and white Touro sign near the road and also "Combat System Technical School Command" on the brick wall at this entrance. The auditorium (Building H-86) is located at the deadend of this street.

The parking lot directly in front of the auditorium is reserved for the disabled. Additional parking is available in nearby parking lots. Attendants will be available to direct you.
