Default What's the nicest part of Sacramento?

Basically I'm getting relocated to Sacramento (Folsom area to be exact) from Portland, OR to work at the Intel Campus in Folsom. My general feeling is that I might end up having to settle down here because the biggest part of the division I work for is stationed in Folsom, so if/when I move up the ladder most likely I would of moved here anyways.

Point being, I'm looking at neighborhoods and frankly from what friends tell me, each neighborhood in Sacramento is hit or miss. I stayed here once in South Sac (Elk Grove) my ex's family who still lives there, but besides that I don't really know the area.. I don't think South Sac is a good representation of Sacramento, so I was hoping for better advice when I decide to look for a place in terms of Neighborhoods. Any help would be appreciated.

Why not just live in Folsom or around Folsom? There's not really any "hit or miss" places over there. Just curious.

Neither Folsom nor Elk Grove are in Sacramento, to be exact. But yeah, the city of Folsom is fairly nice, and close to Intel.

It depends on what your definition of "Nice" is - and how much cash you have to get said "nice neighborhood"

If I had money to burn I'd be living in the Fab Forties or RIGHT along the perimeter of McKinley Park. And that's even if I had to commute to Folsom.

But the higher up the ladder you go - the less 8 to 5 job you'll have - most my C Levels I work with get in at 6 am stay til 8 pm, and LIVE in the office. So commute is not an issue

You are lucky Folsom is so cool lots of charm! I was born and raised in Orangevale which is next to Folsom. I have been a Realtor in Sacramento for the pasdt 10 years and Folsom is one of the most desired areas without question. Very fun place to live with Folsom Lake lots of beautiful parks and trails very safe comunity with good schools! Downtown Folsom is really nice lots of fun things to do. MOD CUT

what's your definition of nice... it's subjective. If you're going to be working in folsom my personal preference would be to live there as well. Lots of information on the city in the forum, do a quick search you'll get alot of results on it.
