For years, Sacramento had a reputation as a place one drives through on the way to somewhere else. Now, people all across the country are recognizing Sacramento as the place to be in California - one of the Golden State's fastest growing and most desirable places to live, work and raise a family. The region is now a prime place to be - and it's still close to recreational attractions, such as Lake Tahoe, ski resorts, the Mother Lode and Napa Valley, that make weekend getaways a breeze. Of course, Sacramento has always had its own attractions. Right here, we have enough natural delights and cultural events to keep your weekly planners filled year-round. There are a thousand miles of Delta and river waterways to play on, the American River Parkway bike trail to ride on, and annual events like the world-famous Sacramento Dixieland Jazz Jubilee. The River Cats AAA minor league baseball franchise built family-friendly Raley Field in West Sacramento and set attendance records, and Sacramento is home to one of today's hottest NBA teams, the Sacramento Kings!
The location of the capital here, in a state whose economy is ranked the sixth largest in the world, gives the area a beat and throb that's unique. The economy of the region alone, at $58.1 billion, would rank 79 out of 172 if it were a nation. There's a sense of common ground among community leaders. Agriculture and commerce blend creatively. Over the years, high-tech companies have taken note of the area's amenities and moved here, and now the high-tech output of the region places Sacramento at 21st out of 100 other metro areas. And, now of course, Sacramento is the part-time home of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger! (Thanks to the Sacramento Metro Chamber of Commerce for these details.)
