Davis, CA

Davis is home to the UC Davis "Aggies".  My mom studied here, so did my uncle, and so did I actually - just one wine seminar, but that count, doesn't it.  Doesn't make me a liberal though.  Davis is a decent sized city, but part of what makes it great is the university.   They are known for their agricultural programs, including winemaking (not far from Napa and Sonoma valleys), and I have always enjoyed just riding bikes, usually with my uncle, through campus.  Along a creek, there is an arboretum with many species of plant life from different corners of the world. It makes for a very scenic afternooon.

Toward the end of my ride, I noticed a farmers market on campus... only the whole park was full of people dancing with hoops, picnicking, and enjoying a mediocre cover band.  The weather was perfect.  Lots of families and lots of bikes.  If you happen to be in the Sacramento area, I recommend a vist.
