The moment you set foot in Davis, California, you will stand in awe at dozens of cyclists on its roads. Little wonder that the city is home to the US Bicycling Hall of Fame. That aside, the city’s flat topography, coupled with numerous bike paths help make cycling a preferred mode of transportation for locals and visitors. The UC Davis Arboretum comprises 100 acres (40.4 hectares) of plant species that make it an essential source of horticultural research. As you walk about town, paintings, mosaics, and sculptures will draw your attention. Civil engineering projects sometimes go awry, as is evident in the Toad Tunnel project in Southeast Davis. With such exciting places, things to do, and cafes to try out, you need accommodation. Read on to find the best Airbnbs in Davis, CA.
