An incredible corn maze that takes minimum 1 hr if you take the fast "left" route or 2hrs plus if you take the full "right" route. Check out the map online complete with the Sacramento Kings logo.....! $12/person.

Davis Campus of the University of California

Reviewed By Kristi K - Seal Beach, California

Our daughter was accepted to several UC's (including UCLA) and private schools (including USC). She chose Davis for its natural beauty, friendly town, amazing research programs, and just the nicest students you could imagine. We live in southern California, and the town of Davis just felt "good" to her, and all of us.

Vacaville Premium Outlets

Reviewed By chgotrvlr71 - Chicago, IL, USA

This is a very large outlet mall in two different plazas separates by a large street. It isn’t very conducive to walking. It is much too spread out. I would say the stores are maybe slightly above normal. Maybe a 6 on a scale of 1-10.

UC Davis Arboretum

This two-mile-long arboretum is a peaceful, popular spot.

Reviewed By Brad S - Davis, United States

UC Davis Arboretum is a treasure. Mostly paved walking path makes it walkable even on rainy days. Shaded with a heavy tree lined canopy makes it a great place to walk even in the heat of the summer. There are various "gardens/collections" along the loop path with informational signs about the plant species, their native origin, and other educational facts. Without predators the duck population has exploded and duck dropping are more prevalent than natural. Benches and tables along the Putah Creek loop course make this an enjoyable place to walk, relax, and unwind. A treasure to be preserved and protected.

Jepson Prairie Preserve

Under wide-open skies, Jepson Prairie Preserve explodes into color during its spring wildflower display. Dry and dormant most of the year, the prairie is transformed by winter rains into a tapestry of stunning colors, and its vernal pools host a rich diversity of rare aquatic life. Stay on the trails. No dogs allowed.

Reviewed By drKSG - California

Take the beautiful, short, self-guided walk around a large vernal pond in open grassland. By late April when we visited there are still good displays of vernal pool flowers: Vernal Pool Goldfields (Lesthenia fremontii), Downingia, Mariposa Lily, Elegant Brodiaea, White Navarretia, etc. A few geese and stilts in the pond with reflection of the blue skies full of fluffy spring clouds.

It makes a pleasant morning outing with a lunch at the picnic tables under the eucalyptus trees across the road at the sign-in board.

Nut Tree Plaza

Reviewed By Bigredmachine

Reading reviews here about the original Nut Tree, it seems most reviewers miss the Nut Tree's uniqueness of being a locally owned, one-of-a-kind, non-corporate owned business. Having never visited the original Nut Tree, I do not have the nostalgic clouding that some reviewers have for this place. Today this place looks like the antithesis of the original Nut Tree, it is a large shopping complex that looks pretty much like any other large shopping complex found in almost every city in America. All the same corporate stores and corporate restaurants are here. Very few, if any, small locally owned business that have any unique flavor. Don't worry if you miss the exit for the Nut Tree, there will be anther shopping complex just like this in the next town you come to.

Artery

Reviewed By Urbane415 - San Francisco, California

The Artery is an artist owned and operated cooperative gallery of fine art and contemporary crafts. I have considered joining and showing works here, but I feel the quality of artwork displayed at the Artery is better than what I'm currently producing! I particularly love the shows--I've been able to meet artists and see new, exciting work in several genres, particularly painting and glass art. Every second Friday of the month there are

All of the pieces displayed at the Artery are for sale; for the most part, I find the prices reasonable, and sometimes even economical. I have purchased more than a few gifts for special occasions.
