Davis is in Yolo County in the Sacramento Valley of California. Davis is best known for the university located there, The University of California Davis.
The climate in Davis resembles that of nearby Sacramento. Davis' climate is typical of that in California's Central Valley. The dry, hot summers and mild winters are typical of a Mediterranean climate.
Davis has the highest per capita number of bikes of any city in the U.S. It's the preferred method of transportation for most students. Unitrans (the local municipal bus system) also runs quite frequently. For undergraduate students riding is free, for everybody else (including graduate students) one journey costs a dollar.
Downtown Davis is also very pedestrian friendly. The UC Davis campus and the heart of the downtown area run alongside one another and it's easy to stroll through both in a couple of hours.
Probably the worst way to experience Davis is by car. The huge numbers of bikers and pedestrians make driving slow and tedious at many times throughout the day.
