According to Forbes, Sacramento was ranked California’s best place to live in 2023. As America’s “Farm to Fork Capital”, Sacramento offers a unique array of produce, restaurants, festivals, and a multitude of activities that will keep you entertained all year long. The Greater Sacramento area is home to Sacramento, Yolo, Placer, El Dorado, Sutter, Yuba, and Nevada counties, where there are dozens of breweries and wineries for even the pickiest wine or beer snob. The weather is fairly consistent and predictable with an average yearly temperature of around 60 degrees. You can expect damp, mild winters and drier summers. When you want to explore Sacramento and the surrounding areas, check out the great hiking trails, Old Sacramento, seasonal rodeos, Folsom Lake, rivers, fun runs, dog-friendly parks, outdoor yoga, coffee shops, farmers markets, music festivals, and more. Not to mention, there are several professional sports teams including the Kings basketball team (light the beam!) located at the Downtown Commons, also known as the DOCO.

Sacramento boasts a rich history with distinctive architectural landmarks such as the California State Capitol, Tower Bridge, Ziggurat and Elks Building, designed by our own founder, Leonard J. Starks. As California’s capital city, Sacramento provides reasonable cost of living, great educational opportunities, and holds among one of the lowest unemployment rates within the state.

Sacramento is full of culture and uniqueness – it’s no wonder it was ranked California’s best place to live due to reasonable cost of living, great education opportunities, diverse population and among one of the lowest unemployment rates within the state. Whether you are looking to go to a restaurant, grab a beer, listen to live music under the stars or hop on a bike and go for a ride, Sacramento has everything you are looking and more!
