Welcome to Sacramento

Sacramento proudly holds the honored title of being the state capital of California. Although the city dates back to 1850, Sacramento has recently emerged as the new trendy place to live in Northern California. The city’s vibrant cultural scene, influx of modern aesthetics and thriving arts community greatly contribute to its appeal. 

From Sacramento’s burgeoning culinary scene to numerous music festivals and art galleries, Sactown offers a rich cultural experience that appeals to those looking for a balanced and modern lifestyle.

Finally, Sacramento’s strategic location places it within easy reach of both the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains and the stunning California coastline, offering local residents plenty of adventure within a short drive from the city.
