I really love Rancho Cordova! Some parts of the city gives a very small-town feel, like in the neighborhoods where you know everyone. In other places, there is a more metropolitan-feel, and there are many stores and markets nearby and easily accessible everywhere. There are a few colleges in the area as well, so it's nice if people want to stay local during their graduate studies.

Coming from a very suburban area, my standards are very high for my living environment. Rancho Cordova is a nice mix of living in a suburban area, but still being close to action with easy access to the city. My neighbors are friendly and I enjoy living in a diverse area. I will say, not every part of this area can be considered "nice". However, I am very comfortable where I am and I do feel an extra sense of safety with a police station nearby. I can see my self living in this area long term and would recommend others to do the same!
Rancho Cordova seems to be a quiet neighborhood but it really depends on what part of Rancho Cordova. We used to live in 95827 zip code which is also a city of Rancho Cordova for 8 years. Our neighborhood was quiet except for it being too close to the freeway lots of cars! Other than that, we had great neighbors and overall a great location.
