Oakland is better, hands down, but Sacramento is Sacramento.

Both are fine cities but a tad overrated on City-Data.

Have you lived in either? I have and they both have their hidden charms that come out after being there for a while. They are both cities that have seen their share of struggle, no doubt.

No but have spent plenty of time in both. I agree that they both have hidden charms about them that isn't always apparent to everyone else, I guess I just think some people tend to overrate them a bit on this site. In the real world though I would agree they tend to be more underrated than not.

For sure. I just hope that both cities can learn from the missteps of SF, Seattle, Portland, Denver etc. and maintain a positive balance in the face of rising popularity. If that's possible. Luckily Sac isn't quite as white hot as Seattle, Denver, and can grow relatively organically.

San Franciscans look down on Oakland almost as much as they look down on Sacramento. I was turned off by the snarky aside about "100 In-n-Out burgers in Sacramento"--there are three, as opposed to San Francisco's one, which means we have about 50% more In-n-Out burgers per square mile than they do, and approximately a zillion non-chain places to get a really, really good burger--we even have an annual Burger Battle! Not exactly a fair comparison. And as for #12, I suppose I like the "Sactown" moniker about as much as San Franciscans enjoy "Frisco."

I'll take living in Oakland any day in the summer rather than Sac... 100+ in summer is not fun.

Nothing better than floating down the American River on a 100 degree day and then relaxing that same night on your patio with a beer. Truly nothing more Pleasant than a Sacto summer evening. Don't get me wrong, I love going to A's games in the summer too. But I always bring a jacket.

I don't get it when folks try to disparage Sac weather. Sac weather is better than that in 99% of the country.
