When it comes to places to visit, they say California begins here. Here is your ultimate guide to everything you need to know about Sacramento: its location, culture, and all the things you can do in the City of Trees.
Sacramento city covers just shy of one hundred square miles and is home to almost half a million residents. The surrounding Sacramento County, world-renowned for its greenery and vast agricultural industry, is almost one thousand square miles in size.
Sacramento is also America’s “Farm-to-Fork” capital, because of its rich agricultural industry. The city is home to the Blue Diamond headquarters, which makes sense considering California state produces 80% of the world’s almonds.
Sacramento is critical to California’s political landscape. It is the seat of both the California Legislature and the Governor of California, and as a result, the city is also home to various lobbying groups, think tanks, and media outlets.
