Lifestyle of Sacramento
Sacramento is the fifth biggest city in the Golden State and California’s capital. The Old Sacramento historic area that explores California’s Gold Rush era has nearly 5 million visitors each year.
Sacramento has nearly 50 farmer’s markets, full of intensely fresh produce grown in the balmy, Mediterranean-style climate. While much of the produce grown here is shipped throughout the United States, the cream of the crop finds a home in Sacramento’s excellent restaurants.
An environmentally-friendly river city with miles of bike trails and hiking paths, Sacramento is also known as “the city of trees,” named by Spanish explorers for the large number of ash trees found here. Each year thousands of volunteers work to maintain this landscape, donating the equivalent of $100,000 in labor to the program annually.
