This upscale neighborhood lies on the eastern edge of Davis, south of Interstate 80. It is anchored by the El Macero Country Club - its 168 acres of greenery winding through the community.
The homes are palatial and elegant, representing an array of aesthetic architectural styles and sitting back on large lots, nestled amidst lush landscaping. The streets are wide and family friendly with sidewalks, offering ample room for walks and family bike rides. The country club is a 72-par championship course and offers swimming (with lessons), tennis, and fitness programs. Non-golfers can head over to the nearly six-acre Pioneer Park, boasting a soccer field, tennis courts, playground, basketball court, backstop, picnic area and off-leash dog area.
Pioneer Elementary sits within El Macero, a convenience for the many families there. The El Macero Shopping Center is very close by and is home to a Nugget Market and Mocha Joe’s coffee shop. Though outside the city limits, its proximity to Interstate 80 makes it easy to access other Davis neighborhoods, as well as the nearby Ikeda’s Market, Yolo Fruit Stand, and Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area.
Davis is just 15 miles from Sacramento and is known to be one of the nation’s best cities for bicycling – boasting (at one time) more bikes than cars. It’s been recognized by the League of American Bicyclists and is home to the United States Bicycling Hall of Fame.
Known as a college town above all else, Davis is an ideal community for families, professionals, and retirees. Popular features include the UC Davis Arboretum and the Mondavi Center, which hosts many word-class performers. The year-round farmers market is also wildly popular. Held Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings, the market was named among America’s Favorite Farmers Markets by the American Farmland Trust. It also ranked among USA Today’s 10 Best Places to Visit a Farmers Market. A seasonal market is held at Sutter Davis Hospital.
