Overview of Davis

Davis, California, is a city that has been largely shaped by University of California, Davis. Home to 65,622 residents, according to the 2010 Census, it is an educated place full of people who enjoy the outdoors and a laid-back lifestyle.

Because of this scholarly influence, the sunny metropolis has been home to a number of intelligent residents, so much so that it graced CNN's Most Educated Cities list at no. 2 in 2006. People who are looking for Davis apartments for rent will be pleased with their choice, as the city is located less than 75 miles northeast of San Francisco and has all of the makings of a perfect place to live.

Living in Davis, CA

Now a part of Yolo County, the city had humble beginnings and grew around a railroad depot that was constructed in the late 1860s. Originally named for Jerome C. Davis, a prominent local farmer, "Davisville" grew as a farming community and eventually the city was incorporated in 1917.

The agricultural roots of the population led to the city's selection in 1905 by then Governor George Pardee as the home to the University of California's University Farm. The first students enrolled in 1908 and the school was eventually made a UC general campus. The institution and the town have not forgotten the agrarian roots of the area, and the school still trains students in a number of farm-related disciplines.

The climate of the city has been compared to that of Mediterranean cities, and this has shaped the actions of residents, especially during summer months. People can be seen walking around the campus, which is located slightly southwest of the downtown area. Finding apartments for rent in Davis is easier in areas outside of this part of town, but residents in almost all parts of the city have easy access to Interstate 80, which connects to the southern part of California.

Davis Work and Study

A majority of the jobs in Davis are at the University of California campus located in the city, and the local governments in the area also employ a number of residents from the region. With Sacramento and San Francisco within driving distance of the city, the former less than a 20-minute drive, jobs are available in the state capital.

With more than 30,000 students, UC Davis is an integral part of the social and cultural influence on the city. 

Rentals in Davis, CA and Cost of Living

Though there is plenty of area to live in the city, the high number of students makes finding an apartment a challenge in certain places. People looking for apartments in Davis will be pleased with the myriad choices they have, as neighborhoods range in size, density and price.

The median gross rent in Davis is $1,225, according to the 2010 Census, but this number can fluctuate based on where you want to live in the city.

Davis Attractions and Special Events

The vibrant culture that is inspired by the local university persists through all areas of the city, and events like the Whole Earth Festival, held each Mother's Day, bring the residents and students together for a number of concerts, educational demonstrations and agriculture inspired exhibits and dances.

The Picnic in the Park celebration is held every Wednesday night from March through October, and draws people from around the area together for a celebration of ethnic food and local agriculture. People can choose from certified organic produce from the city's famous Farmer's Market, or try a number of international cuisines, all while enjoying musical performances from local artists.
