This short excursion from Sacramento offers a mind-boggling study in contrasts. Visit the quiet, rural university town of Davis, best known as a haunt of serious students of agriculture, animal husbandry, engineering, and etiology (grape growing and wine making), and then head on down the road to Vacaville, the site of one of the largest factory-stores malls in the country, where shoppers rush from store to store, their arms loaded with bargains. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Sacramento. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping.
