Davis is a city of 65,000 residents and UC Davis students, located in Yolo County, in the heart of the Central Valley. Famous for the University of California at Davis and conveniently located to both the Sacramento and San Francisco Bay Area regions, Davis has a vast amount of amenities and resources, yet exudes a small-town style.
Davis is a unique, progressive, vibrant and family-oriented city. It is a close-knit and friendly community, ideal for families, students and businesses. The city’s logo of an antique bicycle is indicative of the city’s active lifestyle. There are 100 miles of bicycle lanes and paths on city streets and throughout the many community greenbelts, and bicycles as transportation have been built into the city’s infrastructure for many years.
The city is also known for its commitment to environmental awareness. Solar-powered traffic signals, electric vehicles, and the afore-mentioned bicycles are a way of life. Davis has tree-lined streets that provide shade in the summer, retain heat during the winter, and provide a natural beauty to the city.
