We are moving to the Sacramento area from out of state. After coming into the area for 48 hours and looking at apartments, we have narrowed it down to two areas: Greenhaven and Natomas. Natomas seems to be pretty cookie-cutter which doesn't really appeal to us, but it seems safe and convientant. We like the fact that Greenhaven's apartments are incorporated into the actual neighborhood (I5 and Florin area), but we really don't know much about the it.

Can anyone give us any advice, pro and cons, or personal experiences? Thanks in advance.

I like Greenhaven - try to stay away from the Florin Area though - that part of Town is called South Sacramento, and it's gang laden, and the ghetto part of Sac.

I do notice you are sticking close by I 5 - is there a particular reason?

We didn't really choose that spot. We just happen to find an apartment complex that we liked there. The complex was brand new, and seemed really nice. It was much more integrated into a neighborhood than any other apartment we found.

Exclamation This will wake you up

Take a peek at this website about registered sex offenders

http://www.meganslaw.ca.gov/disclaim...x?lang=ENGLISH

I believe the zip code for Florin and I-5 is 95832 (if not, you can move the map till you find it). It will also let you search by address.

Sacramento neighborhoods change quality pretty fast. Just make sure that the apt complex is not chock full of sexual predators... some have a dozen or more (mainly on Mack road).

To put you a bit more at ease... I lived in South Sac for 2.5 years and never had any problems, I got along great with all my neighbors, even the ones who were known gang members (that might have been because he could see me park my Police car in the DW though). And yes, I know that most people would not be OK with that, so that's why "I'm Reporting, You Decide".

There are other areas of Sac that are new - and cleaner then Greenhaven.

You should expand your search - btu then again you can rent there, and get to know of al Sac and move to an area you like better once you get your bearings

PS - You couldn't get me to live anywhere near South Sac
