Davis

Davis is the most populous city in Yolo County. Davis grew into a Southern Pacific Railroad depot built in 1868. It was then known as "Davisville," named after Jerome C. Davis, a prominent local farmer. However, the post office at Davisville shortened the town name simply to "Davis" in 1907. The name stuck, and the city of Davis was incorporated on March 28, 1917. The city is unofficially divided into six main districts made up of smaller neighborhoods. Davis is located in Yolo County, 11 mi west of Sacramento, 70 mi northeast of San Francisco, at the intersection of Interstate 80 and State Route 113. As of 2011, top three employers were UC Davis, Davis Joint Unified School District and the City of Davis. Bicycling has been a popular mode of transportation in Davis for decades, particularly among UC Davis students. In 2010, Davis became the new home of the United States Bicycling Hall of Fame. Neighboring towns include Dixon, Winters, and Woodland.
