If you are looking up homes in Cameron Park, also look at Rescue and Shingle Springs. Both are very close to Cameron Park but will show up separately in housing searches. There are also non-gated communities in Folsom and El Dorado Hills that aren't the tract-house, small lots that you find in gated communities. Of course, those tend to be homes that are 20+ years old and might need a little updating.

When we were looking for houses a couple years ago, we found Cameron Park difficult b/c many of the available houses were on steep lots as you get more and more hills as you go East from El Dorado Hills. Not so much of an issue if you don't have small children, but unusable for play areas. We also felt that it was a bit too far away from shopping/dining etc. as there is a real rural feel out there. Maybe that's just what you want.

Melissa,
I feel what you are going through. I am originally from California, but lived in NY for about 11 years, where I met and married my husband and had two kids. He is a native New Yorker and his entire family is there. When we told them we were moving to Sac, they were devestated. My husband misses his family a lot. That being said, he doesn't regret the move at all. He hates the cold weather and has no desire to go back to NY. It has been a big adjustment for him, and I fly the kids out to NY constantly. The only way to become okay with the move is to have the desire for a completely different lifestyle. I HATED the rat race of NY. My hubby worked long hours for bosses who expected him to do it without a thought. In NY (and many NE cities) I always felt that work came first and family came second. There is no rat race here. You will notice rush hours are very early here because everyone wants to get off early to enjoy their life. The best part is you can actually enjoy the winter weather because it is incredibly mild. Less people have full time nannies (in fact, I don't know of one person who does) and no one worries abouth where everyone else is "summering" - a term people don't even know here. It is very different, in a relaxing kind of way. My hubbie's family has finally accepted the move and his parents are even considering retiring here (especially after this NY winter!) - they are amazed by the property taxes and realize the lifestyle is a bit easier.

The Pocket isn’t South Sacramento, anymore than Arden is East Sacramento or Natomas is North Sacramento.

Oak Park is also not South Sacramento.
