Things to see in Davis - Dixon

Davis is primarily a university town, welcoming more than 20,000 students each year. A walk through the UC Davis campus will take you right back to your own school days, with students relaxing under the trees or rushing between classes. The landscaped gardens of the arboretum, in particular, make the perfect backdrop for a relaxing afternoon stroll. The university campus also houses some of the best museums in the Sacramento area. Of particular interest is the Bohart Museum of Entomology, a small insect museum which is also a working lab. Davis reviews suggest that the Bohart is particularly popular with kids, who enjoy getting up close and personal with the butterflies, bugs and creepy crawlies! Back in town, the Hattie Weber Museum next to Central Park provides an introduction to the town’s history. Manned by local volunteers, this cozy museum in what used to be Davis Library contains a wealth of local mementoes and historical pictures showing how the town has developed over the years.
