What are some cool things to do in Sacramento or Davis in the summer?
If you’re not slaving away in summer school, a lot of Davis-ites like to play in or around the water. We already mentioned the five public pools in town. If you like algae in your swimming water, there are many rivers that flow nearby (American, Sacramento, Consumnes) your Davis apartment rental. Opportunities abound to take a slow-paced self-guided tour or a more adrenalin-fueled guided tour down them.
Other folks prefer to take a weekend away from their Davis apartment rental and lose their hearts in San Francisco, a short hour and a half away.
