What Bert Has To Say About Sacramento--Roseville--Arden-Arcade Metro Area

Sacramento, the capital of California, has been a leading agricultural and transportation center for most of its history. In the past 15 years, as costs have escalated in California’s coastal cities, thousands have migrated to the area for its reduced cost of living and proximity to San Francisco and Lake Tahoe. Now, as a result, growth and traffic issues have become top-of-mind issues for the area. Downtown Sacramento is pleasant and attractive but somewhat lacking in entertainment and activities (aside from restored historic “Old Sacramento” riverfront downtown area). Most recent growth has occurred to the north, northeast, and south as typical California sprawl- freeways, strip malls, and endless developments of tightly packed homes. Job growth projections remain strong.
