California’s College Town

This place was
designed for you

Davis is the ultimate college town. It’s green, laid back and friendly. You can walk or bike from the main campus to the main street in a few blocks. College students fill up the tables at nearby restaurants and coffee shops with their laptops, homework and friends. The town of Davis helps our students thrive.

What is so special about Davis?

Our community is inclusive and fun. We have a charming farmer’s market that tops many national lists. We have 60 miles of greenbelt — a continuous stretch of protected bike trails through shaded parks. And we have funky art galleries, shops, live music and bookstores.
