Sacramento County Information

Located in the California Central Valley, Sacramento County is one of unique beauty. From the lowlands of the Sacramento River to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the county is ideal for people who enjoy nature and the outdoors. As one of the state's original counties, it began more as a supply area, giving pioneers and gold miners what they needed to survive in the new territory. Over the last two centuries, however, the area has blossomed into a modern and sophisticated locale that still manages to have a comfortable, laid-back atmosphere.

The City of Sacramento, as the county seat, is a popular location for both residents and visitors. Nicknamed "The City of Trees," Sacramento is home to numerous parks and green spaces and is well known for providing ample opportunity for people to enjoy nature. The American River flows through the city, and here you'll find people swimming, sunbathing, boating, fishing, even whitewater rafting. Other popular activities include mountain biking and hiking in the scenic nearby hills. The Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, located south of the city, is great for bird watchers and gets thousands of visitors each year. There are lots of "non-outdoor" activities for people to enjoy as well in Sacramento County. History buffs will enjoy Old Sacramento, which has several museums and historic places documenting the experiences of the area's early settlers. Finally, like all urban areas, the city also has a variety of restaurants and shops to explore, as well as a vibrant night life. Sacramento County provides a unique blend of city and natural landscapes, and history and modern times that is guaranteed to satisfy all.
