Sacramento County encompasses the cities of Sacramento, Rancho Cordova, Citrus Heights, Folsom and Elk Grove, as well as several suburbs such as Carmichael and Fair Oaks. All areas should be considered when thinking of relocation to the area. Sacramento County is the 8th most populated county in the state, and the city of Sacramento has the largest population in the county, with just over 411,000 residents. A total of 1,200,000 people reside in the entire county. Sacramento was incorporated in 1850 and is the county seat, as well as the State Capital. The history began, of course, with the California gold rush of the 1840s when gold was first discovered in the nearby small town of Coloma. News of the discovery spread like wildfire and soon thousands of fortune hunters came to the Sacramento area – and they have not stopped coming since. Today, the city is one of the fastest growing regions in the United States. Sacramento is a cosmopolitan city set in a valley of scenic rivers and canopies of trees. In fact, there are over six million trees in the entire county, making it one of the most “green” cities in the country. Downtown Sacramento is a lovely mix of old Victorians and gleaming new buildings. It’s a city with a rich history and an Old Town that is on the National Historic Register. There are five star restaurants and hotels, world class shopping, and a vibrant arts scene. Sacramento is also very accessible, whether you arrive by air, rail or highway.

Sacramento is also one of California’s most affordable major cities in which to live. The location of the capital here, in a state whose economy is ranked the sixth largest in the world, helps contribute to the area’s healthy economy. Agriculture and commerce blend creatively, and over the years, many high-tech companies have moved into the area. Sacramento is home to 15 major art and historical museums, 26 public libraries, 10 hospitals and 19 major public and private colleges and universities, including California State University Sacramento. There are a thousand miles of Delta waterways to play on, the American River Parkway bike trail to ride on, and annual events like the Jazz Jubilee. Sacramento is home to the NBA’s Sacramento Kings, and more recently, the River Cats minor league baseball team. Plus, Sacramento is just two hours to exciting locations such as Lake Tahoe, the San Francisco Bay Area, ski resorts, the Mother Lode and Napa Valley, making weekend getaways a breeze. The climate in Sacramento is another plus, with an average daytime temperature of 73.6 degrees and average low of 49 degrees. Many are surprised to find there is a change of seasons in Sacramento, just not as pronounced as East Coast cities. There is plenty of color in the fall and wintertime temperatures cool enough for a fire in the fireplace. Summers are warm and dry with very little humidity. Sacramento is a thriving community and although it’s a major metropolitan area, many find that it is one of the few California cities that has retained more of a “small town” feel and is a very good place to raise a family.
