With the motto of “Most bicycle friendly town in the world,” Davis is truly an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. Home to the University of California, Davis, this city is sprawling with acres of green space for days of fresh air and enjoyment.
Check out our Davis hotels and make sure to visit these popular attractions nearby:
Located on the UC Davis Campus, The Davis Arboretum stretches for nearly two miles along the creek, passing through a redwood grove, Native American section and gardens featuring hundreds of individually labeled plant species. This is a great place to spend a tranquil day outdoors.
The rest of the UC Davis campus offers plenty awaiting exploration, including stretches of bike paths, beautiful views, new buildings and a bowling alley under the student union.
Nature-lovers need to visit the Davis Greenbelt, which contains more than 60 miles of green space. One main feature of the park is its 12-mile bike loop, but this area offers visitors multiple options for outdoor activities.
Continue to immerse yourself in the Davis community by visiting the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts for world-class musical performances, speakers and cultural events.
Take advantage of California’s rich soil and visit the locally-owned farm, Impossible Acres, for a day of peach and berry picking (during the summer), hayrides and a petting zoo full of farm animals. Only a short drive from the UC Davis campus, a visit here will give you a nice slice of California to enjoy.
Be sure to stop by the The Carolee Shields White Flower Garden, a theme garden based on the medieval moon-viewing gardens of India and Japan. Don’t forget - the moon garden’s white flowers are best viewed by moonlight!
Be sure to book your stay at one of our Davis, CA hotels nearby. You’ll be glad you did once the day ends and a cozy room and warm bed are in order.
