Davis is known for being politically liberal, having many bicycles and many cycling roads, and having the University of California Davis Campus. According to the CNN magazine "Money," in 2006, it was ranked second in the educational city (based on the ratio of residents with degrees) (ranked first in Arlington City, Virginia).
Davis grew up around the Southern Pacific Railway Yard built in 1868. At that time, it was called 'Davis Building' after Jerome C. Davis, a well known local farmer. However, in 1907, the post office of Davis Building shortened the name of the town and called it 'Davis,' and the name became established. On March 28, 1917, it was incorporated as Davis City.
Davis was an agricultural society, known for contributing to agricultural policy with veterinary medicine and animal husbandry. In 1905, the University Farm Act was passed in the California State Council, and Governor George Perdie selected Davis from 50 possible locations for future California University farms and officially accepted the students in 1908. The farm was renamed the North Branch of Agricultural College in 1922, and was promoted to the University of California, Davis, the seventh comprehensive campus of the University of California in 1959.

Bicycles have been a popular means of transportation in Davis City, and are used especially by students at the University of California Davis. In 2010, the Hall of Fame for American Bicycle was newly built.
In the 1960s, infrastructure for bicycles was a political issue, and in the 1966 election, the majority of the City Government Committee members became supporters of bicycles. By the early 1970s, the introduction of bicycle-related facilities became a pioneer. As the city expanded, new facilities were required. As a result, current citizens are enjoying a broad network of bike cranes, bike lanes, and separate heights of bicycles. The flat terrain and mild climate are also good for bicycles.
In 2005, a bicycle-friendly community project from the American Bicycle Users Union recognized Davis as the country's best city. In March 2006, a magazine called "Bicycling Magazine" featured "The Best City for Bicycles in the United States" and listed Davis as the Smallest City for Cyclists. The use of bicycles is decreasing among Davis citizens. According to the National Census Bureau, the ratio of those who commute by bicycle between 1990 and 2000 dropped from 22% to 15%. This led to the reconstruction of the city's bicycle advisory committee and the establishment of a promotion organization such as "Davis Bicycls!".
In 1996, 2001, 2006 and 2009, Davis's "Cal Again" team won the National Road Cycling Competition. The team has also participated in off-road and truck competition, and has participated in the national event of that kind. In 2007, he held a record-breaking bicycle parade of 822.

Davis's Todd Tunnel is a wildlife intersection created in 1995 and has been attracting a lot of interest over the years, with TV's "The Daily Show." Building a land bridge, animal lovers were concerned about the killing of toads in a car from South Davis to North Davis. for the toad sprang from one bank to the other reservoir. After many discussions, it was decided to build a tunnel of toads under the Paul Line Road crossing the Interstate Expressway 80. The construction cost $14,000. The tunnel is 21 inches wide (53 cm) and 18 inches high (46 cm).
This tunnel also created a problem. The toads did not attempt to use the tunnel, so they tried to use it with a light. However, the toad died from the heat of the lamp in the tunnel. Even if the toad went through the tunnel, the clever bird was waiting at the exit where the toad appeared, and it was necessary to fight it. The exit of the Toad Tunnel was decorated by the post office chief, in the likeness of a toad town.
