Although Sacramento might not be as well known as some of the other popular California cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, or San Jose, Sacramento is actually the capital city of California. And as such, it’s become one of the most desirable places to live in the state of California. Located right where the Sacramento River and the American River meet, Sacramento has a rich and robust history that dates back to an early gold rush. From there, miners sought to establish the city and call it home. With a number of exciting museums, historical landmarks, and even its very own railroad museum dedicated to the history of the Transcontinental Railroad network, Sacramento is a beautiful city with a deep history that is certainly worth exploring.
As the state capital city, Sacramento offers a strong economy with plenty of employment opportunities that range across industries – from the governmental sector, to the private sector. Some of the largest employers in the city include the State of California, Sutter Gould Medical Foundation, Aerojet Rocketdyne, Beutler Air Conditioning and Plumbing, the Sacramento Kings, and ApexCare. With that said, Sacramento is also about an hour and a half drive to San Francisco, which makes it a close enough commute to find work in San Francisco, but live in Sacramento.
Neighborhoods in Sacramento
Downtown Sacramento – Downtown Sacramento is known as the city’s financial hub, in addition to its governmental center.
