Mare Island is the site of a former US Navy Base. Part of it has seen better times, and looks like a neglected ghetto, but much of the island is being used for a variety of new purposes, including a shipyard, university, osteopathic medical school, historic preservation, and a nature preserve. It is located at the northern end of San Francisco Bay in Vallejo.
