    Living in Sacramento, CA

    For upper-middle class residents, Sacramento is very enjoyable, with nice suburbs and a generally sunny climate. There is much to do in the way of outdoor activities. Downtown Sacramento has been going through a revitalization and now has a hip vibe.

    On the other hand, if you’re not making a lot of money or working for the government, you may find Sacramento to be costly… and dull. The summer months can get quite hot and the commute can be expensive and long.

    Sacramento is considered one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the nation, a distinction it has had since Time Magazine voted it #1 in 2002. Since then, it continues to attract a wide variety of people of different races and classes. In 2010, the U.S. Census found Whites at 34.5 percent, Hispanics and Latinos at 26.9 percent, 13.9 percent African-American, and Asians at 18 percent.

    However, Sacramento has also made the Top 10 of Forbes’ Most Miserable Cities in 2011, due to high unemployment, commute, and crime.

    Things to do in Sacramento, CA

    There are plenty of fun things to do in and around Sacramento, especially if you like the outdoors. At the top of the list is Old Sacramento State Park, with historic buildings dating from 1849 and interesting shops right along the delta. Every citizen should also visit the California State Capitol and surrounding Capitol Park, designed after the U.S Capitol building in Washington D.C., as well as McKinley Park, a custom designed playground, which is based on East Sacramento’s 125 year old past.

    Families looking to cool off can have a splashing good time at Raging Waters, see exotic animals at the Sacramento Zoo, or enjoy a movie night at West Wind Sacramento 6 Drive-In. Paradise Beach, located near California State University, is also an excellent spot to have a picnic, indulge in a swim, or simply relax by the water. Fishing is also popular here in the off-season.

    Popular places to eat with the family include the Firehouse Restaurant in Sacramento’s Old Town. The Waterboy in Sacramento is known for great Italian and French food with locally grown ingredients. Adults that like their adult beverages can find many different local breweries serving food and beer, like Sactown Union Brewery or Rubicon Brewing Company. There’s also the Dive Bar in Sacramento that has live “mermaids” swimming in giant tanks. Couples looking for laughs on a night out may want to visit the Punchline, Sacramento’s premiere standup venue. The Ace of Spades is an all-ages club where a lot of local and touring acts play a variety of styles of music.

    As for shopping, there are countless options in Sacramento from quaint, locally-owned boutiques to bustling shopping centers. Located on Arden Way, Arden Fair Mall features over 165 stores and retailers, including Macy's, JCPenney, Sears, Apple Store, Madewell.     Then there’s Midway Antique Mall for vintage design lovers, with thousands of unique pieces, from antique furniture and decorations to jewelry and vintage clothing.

    Sports fans don’t have much choice in terms of major teams - the only franchise is the Sacramento Kings NBA basketball team that play at the Sleep Train Arena. However, Sacramento recently added its first Rugby team, the Sacramento Express in 2016.

    Annual Sacramento events include Sacramento Museum Day, where the first Saturday in February more than 30 local museums are free. There’s also the Grape Escape in June celebrating regional wines, and the giant California State Fair in July.
