Sacramento is a rare combination of urban opportunity and small town appeal: big, but not overwhelming. It is one of the West’s most significant cities for power and profession, and is comprised of intimate neighborhoods, where gourmet grilled cheese and locally sourced coffee are daily specials.
The California State Capitol lies in the heart of the city, with distinctive communities and neighborhoods branching out along the American River and into the Central Valley. Sacramento’s location in such a prolific agricultural area and proximity to the Bay Area cultivated and inspired a culinary haven, now known as America’s Farm to Fork Capital. The arts and culture scene is also flourishing with galleries, museums, and world-class venues like the nearby Wells Fargo Pavilion and Memorial Auditorium.
Old Sacramento is a 28-acre waterfront community keeping the spirit of the Gold Rush and Transcontinental Railroad alive. The thriving commercial district is a National Historic Landmark where residents and guests gather throughout the year for its annual winter-time Theatre of Lights, St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and Fourth of July celebrations.
For world-class slopes or beach getaways, Lake Tahoe is two hours away with both shores easily accessible via Interstate 80 (North Shore) or Highway 50 (South Shore). San Francisco is 90 miles to the west.
Sacramento is home to a wealth of opportunity for personal and professional growth and exploration. In addition to government, recreation, and entertainment ventures, there are numerous hospitals and medical facilities, as well as world-class universities including U.C. Davis and Sacramento State University.
