Living in Sacramento
Welcome to Sacramento, the State Capital of California, located in California's sunny Northern Central Valley. The third-largest city in the state is famous for the world's best climate, a diverse population and politics peppered with Hollywood legends, like governors Ronald Regan and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Sacramento is a city with varied reputations and is the only city in the U.S. with seven nicknames: Almond Capital of the World, Big Tomato, Camellia City, City of Trees, and River City, are among its most well-known monikers. Sacratomato is located at the co-mingling of the Sacramento River, the American River and the northern portion of California's vast Central Valley. The city is the core cultural and economic center for the metropolitan area's 4 million Californians.
River City residents take to outdoor activities like a duck to water with endless opportunities for cycling on the bikeways along the American River; canoeing, fishing, boating and kayaking on the rivers, and skiing in the Sierras. There is also plenty of hiking and camping in the nearby wilderness. It truly is a city with the "world's best climate."
Steeped in the history of the gold rush era, the city offers the perfect blend of old world charm and urban sophistication with its distinctive array of substantial metropolitan attractions. Guests in the city can enjoy seeing Old Sacramento's Historic District, the Sacramento Ballet, the NBA Sacramento Kings, and events like the Ringling Brothers Circus or Taylor Swift in concert at the Power Balance Arena.
Where else but Sacramento can 15 million visitors a year expect to drive from the desert to the beach and from the mountains to city, all in one day? American's most diversified city truly is unmatched.
