I have lived in East Sacramento my entire life and I wouldn’t want to grow up anywhere else. I am walking distance from restaurants, parks, and shops, which makes it hard to ever get bored. As I am going to college within the next year, I know that I will miss my home in East Sacramento. My neighbors are friendly, the nature is beautiful, and Mckinley park is nearby, making it easy to run or walk my dog. I am very grateful to have gotten to live in East Sacramento and wouldn’t trade it for anywhere else.

I live in the heart of East Sacramento where trees are scattered throughout the neighborhood and the old soul of Sacramento glimmers through the area. It may not be the hip downtown scene of Sacrament, but East Sacramento has a variety of different locally owned stores and restaurants to discover. All of which are dedicated to spreading a warm friendly welcome to anyone who walks in. Here we are close to Sacramento State University and to some of the oldest communities, so we're a mix of millennials and elderly folks who all enjoy a good walk by the Sacramento River. In the morning bustle where the crisp morning air freshly hits you with leaves scattered you can spot a mom, baby, and dog all taking a jog around the neighborhood. College students bicycling to get coffee. And old folks taking a stroll in the neighborhood they love so much enjoying the day with a hot cup of coffee.
