Discover Davis in July 2022: Events and Things to do

by Discover Davis

It’s officially summer here in Davis! Farmer’s Markets and outdoor concerts are in full swing and we are looking forward to celebrating Independence Day and riding under the moonlit sky in the Antelope by Moonlight Bike Ride. Other things to get excited about this month: Davis County Dowdle puzzles will soon be available, our new Wander map is available in the app store, and the biting gnats are dying off at Antelope Island! With all that, Davis is the best place for family-fun and adventure this July.

Davis County Dowdle Puzzle

Discover Davis piece by piece in our new 500-piece puzzle! Created by the renowned Eric Dowdle, you can discover some gems in Davis like Lagoon, Station Park, Hill Air Force Base, and Cherry Hill to name a few.

Puzzles will be available in July. Pre-order sales are now open, order yours now!

Shipping is available but if you’re local, you can pick them up at our office in Farmington once delivered.

Davis County Wander Map

We are so excited to officially release our new map with Wander! Now you can really Discover Davis with this amazing interactive map of not only our trails, but our amusement centers, golf courses, shopping centers, and even memorials! Whether you’re a local, temporarily stationed at Hill Air Force Base, or a first-time visitor here, we hope our new map helps you navigate Davis with ease and purpose as you find your fun in Utah’s Amusement Capital!

With 500+ miles of trails here in Davis, that’s a lot of ground to cover! With that being said, our map might not be perfect. If you are out on the trails and notice something might be off, shoot us a message and let’s make it even better!

Stay and shop or grab a bite to eat on Bountiful’s Main Street. (Photo: Roger Tuttle)
