Although I was not raised in Citrus Heights I will claim this area ans other surounding suburbs as though I was. The lush greenery that dresses the landscape in this City and its local surroundings and truly the valley and mountains at large, are breathtaking. There is no doubt that our community and its big sister Sacramento, Ca are c alled the "City on Trees". Additionally, there is not shortage of outdoor fun with rivers and lakes abound. The best part on being a Citrus Heights transplant is that you are pretty much in teh middle of some other far away locations, like the San Fransicisco Bay Area or Lake Tahoe, Ca or Reno, Nevada, making travel times short and fun LONG!

Everything is available in Citrus Heights! Close shopping and it is easily accessible. My only issue with the city is the state of the roads. Main roads, like Madison, Sunrise and Greenback, are in horrible condition. Huge potholes, rough roads are not good for more car tires or personal comfort.
I like that there is ample and various types of shopping centers in Citrus Heights. Each shopping center will usually have an event happening if weather permits. There is a community garden here as well that all are welcome to sign up and participate in. I am close to the freeway to get to downtown Sacramento as well as to head up to Reno/Tahoe. This is a great town!
