I love the many food spots available, places to go on walks/hikes, and you cant BEAT the beautiful sunsets. Easy access to freeways which makes it super convenient to travel to Downtown Sacramento, Natomas, or out to Davis which is 15 min drive. Over the past 3 years it has grown so much I cant wait to see what else lies in store for West Sacramento's future.

Life in West Sacramento is neighborhood friendly and peaceful. I get to walk up on the levee and see the Sacramento River flowing. I go for walks, ride my bike and enjoy the atmosphere. There are great restaurants and stores people can go to. Excellent bus transit service.
I love the calmness that is found in West Sacramento. There is so much to do in this city for all types of people. Everywhere is clean and neat. The amount of crime is significantly less compared to the surrounding cities. Overall, it is a good place for people interested in all sorts of activities.
