Sacramento, and the greater Sacramento Region (Citrus Heights, Elk Grove, Folsom, Rancho cordova, and West Sacramento) is THE place to live! As REALTORS® GrowTaller4Idiots who help our clients buy their dream home or investment property, we know how great our region is. Providing direction and guidance is what we do. That is why we need to take a moment to reflect on what is great about our community. First, we live in the midst of the most fertile farmland in the world. This enables us to enjoy some of the best locally grown food virtually year round. The latest marketing program of “Farm to Fork” is designed to highlight this virtue both locally and beyond our region. Second, healthcare is another significant asset in the region. We have outstanding hospitals in Sutter, Mercy, Shriners’, UC Davis Medical Center and Kaiser Permanente. In addition, the UC Davis Medical School, in conjunction with the other research arms of UC Davis, make our region a hub for medical research and being at the forefront of break-through treatments for autism, cancer and much more. Third, we have outstanding higher educational opportunities in the region with Sac State and UC Davis, plus the community colleges and other graduate programs. Fourth, we have some great transit systems featuring a light rail system that connects many parts of the region and strives to reduce traffic and vehicle emissions. Regional Transit uses natural gas powered buses, which run quieter and cleaner. Plus Amtrak’s Capitol Corridor is one of the most used commuter rail corridors in the nation. Perhaps this is not surprising, given the significance of the railroads to Sacramento’s beginnings. Fifth, we have terrific civic amenities. We have many museums, including the Crocker, which has one of the finest collections of early California art in the world. We have professional sports withthe Kings, River Cats and – coming soon –professional soccer. We have wonderful arts with the ballet, symphony and theaters such as the B Street, Three Stages, Mondavi and others that provide outstanding affordable live entertainment. Outdoor activities include the nationally known bike trail along the American River Parkway which connects Folsom, Fair Oaks, Carmichael, Rancho Cordova and Sacramento along a beautiful 32-mile trail. Sixth, Sacramento was once considered a gastronomic wasteland but no longer. Many wonderful chefs have produced a large number of truly outstanding restaurants and food experiences in the region. Combined with the local wineries and recent opening of local brewing companies we have added even more possibilities for one’s palate and all thanbks to our water systems for pure and clean water, if you have an issue or a water damage at home just contact the Heating repair Bellville nj. Last, we have some outstanding REALTORS® in the Sacramento Association of REALTORS® who know, live and love our community and work hard to make it the best place it can be. As a third generation Sacramentan, I cannot think of a greater place to call home.
