Don't let the negative talk from a few people about Sacramento deter you. Sacramento is a fine place in itself, as well as being just a stone's throw from San Francisco, the Napa/Sonoma wine country, and the Lake Tahoe sierras. Like anywhere else, there are good areas and bad areas, and there are good people and bad people (much more of the former than the latter). Also like anywhere else, it is what you make out of it.

Housing is by far less expensive in and around Sacramento than in and around the other major metropolitan California cities (S.F., San Jose, L.A., San Diego, etc.).

I moved here from Orange County, where it is absolutely gorgeous...and so expensive that I knew I'd be stressed out and running hard in the hamster wheel continuously in an effort to try to afford the basic things. I don't have those kind of worries in Sacramento. And when I want some beach time, I fly to Hawaii for vacation.
