Dixon offers much more than a few gas stations and a Wal-Mart. You can get to Dixon from Davis by going west on Interstate 80 or by taking country roads such as Pedrick Road. Located in Solano County, it takes no longer to get from Davis to Dixon than it does to get to Woodland, and it's cheaper to live in Dixon than in Davis. Many restaurants are located along Pitt School Road. The animals most associated with the town are lambs and sheep, hence the high school mascot: the rams. A lesser used name for Dixon is "Ram Town," which can be seen on some of the local businesses. Davis and Dixon are separated by the Davis-Dixon Greenbelt.

Dixon of the Past

  • Java California - Closed— formerly Dixon's only 24 hour coffee place, with a very student-friendly atmosphere. there are three separate areas, the coffee house, the backroom - which has a children's area and a copy machine, along with tables for laptops, and a shelf covered in videos, and the third room (which is largest) with a bunch of tables to do work on for students.

2012-09-21 07:15:53   So far the only good thing about living in SouthWest Davis is proximity to DIXON for shopping. For my car windshield, for the Goodwill on half-price-sale days, for Wal-Mart and my $4.00 prescriptions, for the Safeway with a somewhat "discounted" price at its gas station, for churches that give out free food with no quibbling when you're a substitute teacher and off for the summer. If I could find a way to get cheaper rent on that side of the County Line than splitting a room in a multiple-roommate apartment here right off-campus, I'd do it in a New York Minute. —PaigeKennedy
