Downtown Sacramento is home to a wealth of culture and history, from the world-famous skyline and Tower Bridge, to the State Capitol and plenty of beautiful parks. The area is walkable and beautiful with its tree-lined streets; however, it is also very expensive, loud, and crowded!

Some of Sacramento’s best neighborhoods include:
