Pedal to Everything

It’s no wonder Davis was the first recipient of the League of American Bicyclists’ Platinum Award. Repeatedly recognized as the most bicycle friendly city in the nation, Davis offers commuters and casual cyclists alike more than 100 miles of bike lanes and trails to traverse the city on two wheels. The bike and pedestrian path connecting Willow Creek to the Davis Bike Loop makes pedaling to work, to school, or running errands so easy you’ll leave the car at home.

One of the Healthiest Places for Kids

In 2015, U.S. News and World Report ranked Yolo County among the nation’s 50 healthiest counties for raising children—and one of California’s top 5. From air and water quality and outdoor activity to community-supported schools and access to health care, Davis is hands-down a city where kids thrive.

UCD & Downtown

At Willow Creek, the UC Davis campus and the cafes, galleries, shops, restaurants, and greenways of Downtown Davis make up your extended backyard. After live music and lunch at the farmers market, hit Mishka’s for a coffee before a ride through the arboretum. Catch an indie double feature at the Varsity or book a fireside table at Mustard Seed. Flip through the new vinyl at Armadillo. Taste a sampling of Spanish reds at Vini, or treat the kids to a double dip at The Good Scoop. Tomorrow there’s more to explore.
