From the Tower Bridge in Old Sacramento, looking east ten blocks down Capitol Mall, California's magnificent State Capitol rises above the trees and surrounding buildings. Lining Capitol Mall are landmark private and government buildings including the Wells Fargo Building, the State Department of Education, the Employment Development Department headquarters, and the Sutter Club. Museums, restaurants and hotels flank this center of business and government.
Two blocks north of Capitol Mall, K Street Mall stretches from Old Sacramento and the Downtown Plaza to the Sacramento Convention Center. Restaurants, hotels, theaters and shops line the mall. The convention center presents the ballet, the Sacramento Philharmonic, political events, and the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee. The six-story Imax theater complex is located across the street. A block to the west is the historic Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament.
Midtown Sacramento has its restaurants and Victorian homes. Downtown offers access to most state government offices, historic buildings, the Plaza shopping center, museums, theaters, Convention Center and Old Sacramento. Sacramento's population growth, in part, reflects the real estate adage Ã¢â‚¬Å“location, location, location.Ã¢â‚¬? Sacramento is an urban jewel set amid a sea of rich agricultural enterprise. The Port of Sacramento and International Airport makes this city of trees accessible to the world.
Blessed with much to do in town, Sacramento also is a day trip away from California's beautiful north coast, four hours from Pebble Beach, and less than two hours from Napa, Sonoma, and the world-famous wine country. San Francisco is 73 miles to the west and the Sierra Nevada and South Lake Tahoe is about the same distance to the east. Sacramento offers a diverse housing market, from multi-million-dollar estates to affordable homes for first time buyers. This, and an expanding job market, make Sacramento a place to call home.
