Sacramento is the DC of the west coast. California, the 9th largest economy in the world, and Sacramento is the Capitol of it. Sacramento has a lot of white collar gov't middle to upper income salaries.

Sacramento sits next to two rivers with the Delta/Wetlands just south of it. Sacramento is a west coast city, but not actually on the coast; DC is an east coast city, but not on the actual coast.

Philly-Baltimore-DC similar to a SF-Oakland-Sacramento.

Sacramento is the Baltimore of the west coast, similar size city and metro, both less glamorous of their coastal sisters and brothers. Both have lots of history, pride, and character.

Oakland is the Baltimore of the west coast, similar size city, both very african-american, both have a lot of rough looking neighborhoods, both less glamorous of their coastal sisters and brothers.

Sacramento is the Columbus of the West. Both capitols, both have only 1 major league sports team. Both have power house universities in the metro. UC Davis for Sacramento. Ohio State for Columbus.

Sacramento is the Cincinnati of the West. Almost identical in size.

Sacramento is the Denver of the West Coast. Both are flat cities with large mountains and ski resorts within 1-2 hours. Both are Capitol cities.

Sacramento is the Salt Lake City of the West Coast for the same reasons as Denver.

Lol No. Philly is not at all connected to the DC-Baltimore area in so I don't understand your comparison. Philly is a different and isolated area in comparison. Sacramento feels somewhat connected to the greater bay area.

Buffalo has way more history, industry, interesting architecture (gothic), culture; it has major league sports.

With most of the comparisons above; it depends on the context.

For example:
SF is more like NY than LA is like NY regarding - architecture, educational attainment, urban street life, density.

LA is more like NY than SF is like NY regarding - entertainment industry, flashy wealth, sheer size.
