    Sacramento Reviews

    Sacramento is a great town for anyone in their twenties or early thirties. The downtown scene is great for all crowds with their diverse bar scene. I love the food, drink, and entertainment Sacramento has to offer. The small suburbs in the outskirts of Sacramento such as Natomas, Citrus Heights, and The Pocket provide housing for all at an affordable rate. One thing I would change about Sacramento is the way that crime rate is displayed. Zillow and Trulia seem to be misinformed on what neighborhoods are good and what are bad. Stay off of Watt Avenue! There are many spots along Watt that are not safe to walk around at night.
    Great! I live in the surrounding area and still have family located in Sacramento. The atmosphere is very diverse with a multitude of ethnic foods. The possible downside is the cost of living and heavy traffic on the freeways. Fishing opportunities are plentiful as rivers, ponds, and lakes are abundant.
    Sacramento is America’s most diverse city. While other cities like New York City or Los Angeles are diverse as well, the different cultures in Sacramento blend more smoothly together meaning that it’s also one of the most integrated countries in the nation as well. Sacramento is known for being an environmentally friendly city. Thanks to their energy distribution system, SMUD, the city has become a leader in use and the development of clean fuel sources. Sacramento built itself during the Gold Rush. Without the gold rush, it is far less likely that Sacramento would be the capital of California and the sixth biggest city in the state. The city was a very important distribution hub, allowing Sacramento to grow commercially very quickly.
