Just over 10 miles (16km) west of California’s capital, Sacramento, is Davis, the seat of the University of California. This college town has a bustling urban population and an active nightlife with plenty of taverns and taprooms spread across the city. However, there is much more to experience and explore than this city’s urban life. Nestled in the Sacramento Valley, the city’s urban core is bordered by the Davis Greenbelt. The flat terrains are perfect for cycling, jogging and sightseeing. Located somewhere between Davis and Sacramento is Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area known for its vast wetlands and woodlands that is a haven to wading birds, migratory birds, turtles and fishes. The UC Davis Arboretum is home to various colorful plants from across the globe that would awaken your senses, while birders will be delighted by kingfishers and herons darting here and there. There is also Haagen-Dazs Honey Bee Haven where you can explore the buzzing bees amid the radiant, aromatic flowers. If you are looking for accommodation in Davis, here are the best Vrbo vacation rentals in Davis, California.
