Top 5 Reasons to Live in Sacramento
When you live in Sacramento, you’re near the lively and historic downtown with a legacy that reaches back to the Gold Rush and a vibrancy that continues to grow. It’s a place where residents can enjoy places to shop, eat, walk and listen to live music—but here are the top five reasons it’s an incredible place to live.
- It’s a Great Value
- Sacramento has a lot to offer its new residents. And the number one attraction? Its great value—like our new community Northlake, which is close not only to it all but also a short drive to shops, restaurants and employment spots throughout Sacramento.
- Plus, living at Northlake comes with modern community amenities, including scenic lakes, an inviting future Residents’ Club with a pool and the future LakeHouse for private events and gatherings. But that’s not all—there’s so much coming to this fresh new living destination like green neighborhood parks, walking trails, open spaces and a planned TK-8 school.
- An Awesome & Thriving Locale
- You’re minutes away from Downtown Sacramento, where you can take your pick of craft food, epic breweries and red-brick boutiques. The Sacramento Beer Frontier is a brewery “passport” that invites residents and visitors to explore world-class craft beer. The Farm-to-Fork Festival offers a mile of local food, regional wines, craft beer, cooking demonstrations and much more.
- All the Easy Transportation
- You’re near where you want to be, close to the Sacramento International Airport and major freeways leading to the Bay Area.
- Unlimited Outdoor Adventures
- The open-air fun never stops with the Old Sacramento Waterfront, regional parks and the American and Sacramento rivers at your doorstep. Capitol Park offers historic charm with statues, monuments and a collection of trees that are native to California, while McKinley Park has a beautiful rose garden, playground, jogging path and tennis courts. If urban exploration is more your style, see Sacramento’s murals close by or tour the many Sacramento neighborhoods.
- The Sacramento River offers activities like boating to San Francisco, fishing, birdwatching and hiking and biking across over two miles of scenic trails. Meanwhile, the American River offers the same fun plus raft rentals for self-guided rafting trips on the lower stretch of the river.
- It’s a Cultural Hub
- Whether it’s world-class sports stadiums, renowned museums or music venues, you’re living at the heart of discovery in the capital city. The Crocker Art Museum features the world’s top display of California art and is famous for its holdings of European master drawings and international ceramics. The California State Capitol Museum is Sacramento’s elegant, long-standing museum that documents the history of California via exhibits and artifacts. And for transportation fans, the California Automobile Museum offers 120+ cars on display, while the California State Railroad Museum brings the history of the California railways to life.
- For live sports and entertainment opportunities, the NBA’s Sacramento Kings play their home games at the Golden 1 Center. The 2019 Triple-A National Champions, Sacramento River Cats, affiliates of the San Francisco Giants, play their 2021 season at Sutter Health Park. And Sacramento residents can also enjoy concerts at Golden 1 Center and live music and entertainment at several other venues throughout the city.
