Local Info

Downtown Davis has many cheap, local restaurants within easy walking distance of campus. The entire city is 10 miles square, and very flat (the elevation change from one end to the other is literally only a foot). Most establishments are located in the downtown area east of campus, and are easily discoverable. Other than google, davisdowntown.com, and Davis Wiki have a lot of info on local establishments.
