Living in Greater Sacramento
Sacramento is a star on California’s map—and it’s not just because it’s the capitol. Sacramento has always had a more sedate reputation than its more flamboyant neighbors like San Francisco and Los Angeles, but the city’s natural beauty and unhurried way of life have lured many away from busier coastal metropolises. Greater Sacramento is one of state’s fastest growing regions, as more and more people have discovered its charms. Sacramento’s nickname is “The City of Trees” and it’s located at the confluence of the Sacramento and American Rivers. Due to its geography, Sacramento has lovely weather—with hot but dry summers, mild winters, and plenty of fall foliage. Sacramentans enjoy biking and walking along the many flat, riverside trails year-round, and for drivers, there’s almost no traffic congestion on the daily commute. It’s also an easy jaunt to the Bay Area or Lake Tahoe for a weekend trip.
