Area Overview

Yolo County is tucked-away between Lake Tahoe and San Francisco, but it is a world apart. Davis, Winters, and Woodland boast a vast variety of experiences, from bike paths lined with lush greenery, strolling through parks, shopping in historic districts, art walks, cultural events, adventure sports, and much more!

Winters is a small yet accessible town, surrounded by fields and orchards, and Woodland is full of historical and agricultural treasures. Enjoy farm tours, great theater at the Woodland Opera House, and the Heidrick Ag History Center with more than 130,000 square feet of exhibit space. The City of Woodland also offers beautiful examples of Victorian and Craftsman style houses in the historic center of town, or get out of town on one of the many enjoyable themed train rides on the Sacramento River Train.

Incorporated Yolo County is full of charm and surprises. To the northwest portion of the county you’ll discover the verdant Capay Valley and the serene little towns of Esparto, Capay, Brooks, and Rumsey. Orchards and vineyards fill the valley floor; keep going and you come to Cache Creek, a great place for fishing and, in summertime, white water rafting. To the southeast you’ll find beautiful Clarksburg, home to nine winery tasting rooms in the Old Sugar Mill, as well as well-known, prizing-winning Bogle Vineyards. In summer, the Mill plays hosts to outdoor concerts. Elsewhere you can take part in farm tours, relax in cozy bed-and-breakfast inns, and take part in fairs and festivals year-round. Come to Yolo County — you’ll love it here!
