I'm considering a job that would be located at what used to be McClellan AFB. Here are my questions (feel free to answer as many as you like):

1) Is Roseville a nice place to live?

2) What are the good and not so good areas or Roseville?

3) What are the things about Roseville that someone moving from the midwest should be aware of?

4) Any recommendation for nice apartment complexes ($1200 a month and up) in Roseville?

5) What would be the approximate commute time from Roseville to McClellan around 8:00 AM?

6) Are there any other nice areas around McClellan that I should consider looking at that would have a good selection of nice and fairly new apartments?

Thanks for answering any or all of my questions.

Roseville is considered one of the nicest communities in the Sacramento region. It is very suburban, sprawling, lots of newer homes, and shopping centers (Sacramento area largest and newest mall is The Galleria Mall in Roseville). Roseville has a small historic old downtown area (started as a railroad town back in the 1800's). Crime is on the low side and I don't know of any really 'bad' areas to speak of although I have heard a few spots in the older part of town might be sketchy. I do not live in Roseville so I don't have any specifics, just the basics. I'm sure others will chime in with all the details. McClellan is located in a place called North Highlands. North Highlands does not have a good reputation at all (ongoing issues with crime,gangs, drugs,etc...)and most people would advise not to move there! Mcclellan itself is fine to work at.
I'm really not sure about the commute time. Other nice areas to consider within commuting distance to McClellan would be Fair Oaks, Orangevale, parts of Carmichael and Citrus Heights. Good luck.

Roseville really is quite nice, it's just a matter of finding out which area you like the best. You should be okay on finding a rental there in your price range. PM me if you have any other questions, grats in the new job!

Let me explain something about roseville..
I lived there for a few years before moving away last year..
Roseville is one of the most pretentious, materialistic cities I've ever been.. Everywhere you turn, all you see is mercedes, lexus, botox, fake boobs, fake tans, expensive clothes, etc.. Lots of stuck up people and everything is all about "keeping up with the jones's"
If that doesent bother you, then its a great place to live..

Don't ever move to the Bay Area if that bothers you.

You must have spent a LOT of time at the mall.

Hello, just joined the forum to share my thoughts haha.

1. I have lived in Roseville all my life and I think it is a great place to live. I live in West Roseville, which is near where the farms begin, and where all of the new housing developments are. That is probably where Zoom is talking about, or over by the Galleria mall. There are other parts of Roseville, such as the older areas, that are much nicer and have less of a suburbia feel (which I am hating right now).
2. There really aren't any bad areas of Roseville. We have a low crime rate for the amount of people that live here. The only area that might be a bit sketchy is near downtown, around Main St. and Riverside Ave, but nothing to worry about.
3. Not really sure what you mean by this, but the weather is hot and dry in the summer and cold and damp in the winter. The Galleria Mall and adjacent Fountains is probably the number one site for shopping in the Sacramento area. Another thing, if you don't like loud noises, don't move near the Placer County fairgrounds. There is a racetrack, All American Speedway, which features car racing every Saturday from around April to October.
4. No idea about this, sorry.
5. I woud guess commuting would be around 30 minutes, but that is a big guess. I commute to school on I-80 to Sacramento every day, and the freeway traffic varies day to day, but is generally moving.
6. Once again, I don't know.

Hope this helps and that I didn't overwhelm you.
