Located on Interstate 80 west of Sacramento, Davis prides itself on its small-town feel and quality of life.

Home of a University of California campus, it is known for its bikeways and 22 miles of greenbelts that are part of 521 acres of parks.

The university provides intellectual and cultural resources unique to the metropolitan area, including a recently built performing arts center. The city of about 60,000 also boasts more than two dozen private and public galleries and a Street Faire.

The city's expanded central park includes a teen center and a farmer's market, which brings in gourmet foods as well as more ordinary fruits and vegetables.

The city has an abundance of small shops and service establishments with a regional shopping center a short drive to downtown Sacramento. It is also on a rail line to the San Francisco Bay area and to Roseville.
