DAVIS
California, U.S.A.
CITY OF BICYCLES
Welcome to Davis, California.
Davis has the largest population in Yolo County with a population of around 66,000 people. The city was originally a Southern Pacific Railroad depot, known as Davisville after Jerome C. Davis, an important local farmer. The post office later abbreviated the name to just Davis, and the name has stuck ever since. Davis has a long history as a farming community and is well known for its agricultural policies, excellent veterinary care and caring for farm animals. After the passage of the University Farm Bill in 1905, Davis was selected out of 50 states to become the future home to the University of California's Farm. The University Farm opened in 1908, and was later named the Northern Branch of the College of Agriculture. Today, it is the seventh UC general campus; the University of California, Davis. Davis is situated in the Sacramento Valley, with bordering towns including Dixon, Winters, and Woodland. The area is mostly flat, which has turned Davis into a prominent bicycle city. Residents of the city have been using bicycles to get around town for decades, and this transportation form is especially popular with students at UC Davis. In fact, Davis is even the home to the United States Bicycling Hall of Fame! Davis offers quite a lot of special events where you can get to know the city better. The Whole Earth Festival, completely held by UC students, invites a large number of bands and speakers over the course of three days during the Mother's Day weekend. Another event is the Celebrate Davis festival, which features booths by local businesses, live bands, yummy food and obviously, animals. While parking is scarce, it's not a problem since everyone tends to bring his or her bicycle anyway. For a bit of culture, check out the Davis Transmedia Art Walk; a free, self-guided art tour that covers a total of 23 murals, 16 sculptures, and 15 galleries and museums. The walk travels through downtown Davis, as well as the University of Davis' campus. A year-round attraction is the Mondavi Center, where you can attend world-class acts with star-performers like Yo-Yo Ma and Cecilia Bartoli. If you're into flora, be sure to stop by the UC Davis Arboretum, an arboretum and botanical garden, which features colorful plants from all over the world.
