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.

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.
