Davis schools are great, a "lowly" 9 on great schools. If course, it isn't in the Bay Area Metro as it is a Sacramento suburb, and this impacted the real estate market. The pricing didn't skyrocket like in the Bay, and prices didn't fall as far. Also, the market there is stable since Davis has the benefit of being a desireable college town. Pricing and demand are stable, and of course there is a built in community of people aching to live there. They also did not build much during the real estate boom. It is safe to say Davis is probably the "Lamorinda" of the Sacramento metro.

Vacaville is on the fringe of the Bay and Sacramento metros, so it is essentially an exburb for either one. Davis is only about 15 miles from Sacramento so you could easily work in downtown or a Sacto suburb like Elk Grove (Apple's operations department has been located there for at least 10 years).

If you don't have a need to commute to the actual Bay Area, Davis is a great fit. Good schools, cute city, decent commute to Vacaville, good commute to the city center of Sacramento for additional employment opportunities. And visiting the Bay is a 90 minute train or a car ride away.
