    Hi Steve, good tips on the campus of UCDavis. My son spent four years there and has been a practicing veterinarian for the last eight years. I know the hotels in the area quite well. lol Larry

    Hey Steve, Davis will be a new stop on the Amgen Tour of California this year. Seems like a no brainer to make this famous bicycle town a stop for a cycling road race. Great new tips...

    It is a pleasure to view recent pictures of Davis where I spent a year in 1980! Always a bike town, I see!

    Practical tips on Davis! Good info on UCD Vet/Med School, which is known to be a top-tier school.

    Nice new page! I never heard of "reparking"... here in Monterey the signs say cars must be moved 150 feet, and the computerized meter maid mobiles ensure compliance.
