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."
