    It's not the safest place in the city but it is also not the worst. If I can do it all over again I would have advocated to stay in Los Angeles. Sacramento compared to the rest of the country is pretty decent.

    There is always a lot of things happening around the city. Going to other areas it is not the same diversity and atmosphere that makes me want to stay in Sacramento. I like that it has a little bit of nature and city life all in one. It makes the best of both worlds and in the center of all other travels.

    It is quite quite area, I have no contempt to the Sacramento area. Not much to do; However, form time to time something intriguing comes along.
