5 North: Woodland, background and hotels


          Once the richest community in the state, Woodland has more than 400 historic homes situated in its historic district and the downtown is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Shops and restaurants operate within a blend of old and new buildings.  It is a friendly town, and sometimes it seems like everyone knows everyone. 

          Located east of Highway 505, at intersection of Highway 16 and Highway 5; south of Highway 505/Highway 5 junction.  Take Highway 505 to Highway 16 east towards Sacramento; or exit Highway 80 at Highway 113 north by Davis; about a 10-minute drive from Davis.
