Welcome to the heart of Sacramento.
Sacramento is the state capital of California, and has a history, and heritage, dating back to the days of the “Gold Rush”. A population of just 500,000 people means you have a city capable of supporting a modern lifestyle, but not so overcrowded that you can’t get around during rush hour.
Our picturesque downtown is just 4-miles wide, making it very compact for a modern city, and when you include the light rail system we have in place here, it makes getting around even easier.
Old Sacramento is a trip back in time to the 1850s, especially the Lady Adams Building, the B.F Hastings building, and, of course, Sutter’s Fort should be on everyone’s bucket list. Sacramento, or “Sac Town” for short, combines the best of the old world with the best of the new.
If you’ve shivered your way through your last winter, swearing to find a warmer place to live, then Sacramento should be at the top of your list.
Our Mediterranean climate means you get hot, dry summers, and then very mild winters following that, and without much rainfall. The sweltering summers are eased a little by the “delta breeze” carried here thanks to the Sacramento River, one of two rivers flowing around the city.
One of the real bonuses to living in Sacramento, or the nearby areas, is that the cost of housing is far, far lower than almost anywhere else in California. This means you get a bigger home for less money than you will elsewhere in the So Cal region.
We’re proud of just how ethnically diverse our population is, because it helps make Sacramento a great place to live – the cultural heartbeat of a city always starts with its people.
Sacramento is centrally located to San Francisco, Napa and Lake Tahoe. Even if you can’t find what you’re looking for here, it’s just a short drive away. When you combine that with the fact that there is almost no traffic to contend with, you’ll start to see why so many people are trying to relocate to Sacramento. Those hour-long tailbacks you take for granted in LA or San Francisco don’t exist here.
No matter where you live, having easy access to a hospital that provides exemplary healthcare is always important. UC Davis Medical Center is ranked in the top 50 of all US hospitals in providing cancer and orthopedic care, making it one of the best hospitals in the country. Of the 5,000-plus hospitals spread across the United States, you’ve got a gem right in your backyard.
Not so in our fair city by the rivers. The people who live here value the social ambience created by our diverse population. We still take the time of day to say hello to each other, to be friendly, and to make you feel welcome. A big part of what makes Sacramento such a great place to live are the people who live and work here – you won’t feel like a stranger for long.
