Eco-friendly, laid-back, and progressive, with leafy streets lined by impressive professors’ homes and fraternity houses—Davis has all the hallmarks of a classic college town. But it’s got its own unique vibe too—thanks in large part to its flat topography and fertile Yolo County setting, 15 miles west of Sacramento. Started as the agricultural extension for University of California, Berkeley, UC Davis soon became its own campus, with strong veterinary, viticulture, and agricultural departments. Today it’s the fourth largest school in the University of California system, with around 40,000 students.
