Welcome to Greater Sacramento Area

Gorgeous California countryside with something for everyone
Lying in the Central Valley and flanked by the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the Greater Sacramento Area consists of seven counties in northern California, namely Sacramento, Placer, El Dorado, Yolo, Yuba, Sutter, and Nevada counties. Straddling diverse cultural influences of the Bay Area, Eastern California, and North California, the Greater Sacramento Area has become a hotspot for commuters seeking huge bang for their buck in an attractive place with great amenities and the quintessential California lifestyle.
Served by a vast freeway system as well as the largest rail hub west of the Mississippi River, its central location to the Bay Area and Nevada border makes Greater Sacramento a major transportation hub in Northern California. Locals revel in the beauty spawned by its mountainous terrain, lakes, lush parks, and numerous ski and nature resorts.
The Greater Sacramento Area is endowed with a perfect Mediterranean climate and is one of the world’s most important agricultural areas. Innovators have flocked here for revolutionized agriculture tech, and wine connoisseurs have experienced great flavors in its vineyards. In a mix of Spanish-style estates and mid-century modern beauties, homeowners are sure to find the perfect property to suit their taste.

Local Lifestyle

Greater Sacramento is loved for its beautiful climate, remarkably affordable housing, and the promising job market. The region’s highly reputed schools prepare students for a successful higher education and even more fulfilling careers. With the sheer number of wineries sprinkled around, you won’t have to visit Napa Valley for the perfect taste of wine. Tour museums and art centers, or spend your days exploring the bountiful recreational opportunities around. An enriched quality lifestyle awaits in Greater Sacramento, whether you want to live, work, or play!

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

The Greater Sacramento Area exhibits a mother lode of upscale shopping malls, gourmet restaurants, and sophisticated entertainment venues to spoil any foodie, shopper, or bon vivant! From the sprawling DOCO in Sacramento to Woodland Gateway in Yolo County, there is something for everyone in this area.
Plop down on a cushioned seat with your partner for a lunch date at Canon’s, where you can order grilled octopus and corn fritters served with a cocktail or wine. The restaurant’s chocolate cake is a must-try if you’re looking to dig into some dessert.
Want your dining experience in a high-end, Michelin-starred restaurant? Look no further than The Kitchen, serving an eight-course fixed-price menu of American dinners in a wonderfully lit, open-kitchen setting. New American and French cuisine are taken to the next level in the elegant, contemporary Ella Dining Room & Bar, and if you want great California rolls, teriyaki chicken, and tempura green beans, you’ll have a swell time at Mikuni Sushi.

Things to Do

Dozens of vendors, chefs, and festival goers come together to celebrate the bounty sourced from farmlands at Sacramento’s famous Farm-to-Fork Festival, which spills across downtown and into nearby side streets. Not only locals but thousands of visitors flock to the area to sample locally sourced produce including cheese, wine, and olive oil. With live musical performances, cooking demonstrations, a kids zone, and plenty of food and wine to go around, this festival is the ultimate foodie event of the summer!
Come cheer on the Sacramento Kings at Golden 1 Center (formerly King’s Arena), and take a tour of the historic riverfront Old Town Sacramento flecked with Gold Rush-era buildings, cobblestone streets, and horse-drawn carriages. Perhaps you’d love to spend a part of your afternoon taking excursion train rides at the state Railroad Museum or swinging by the Sacramento History Museum for an exciting underground tour or Choose Your Own Gold Rush Tour!
