Wow! Who woulda thought?

More U-Haul trucks made one-way trips into the Sacramento area than any other city in America last year, according to migration data from the rental company.

A press release from U-Haul on Tuesday ranked the Sacramento-Roseville market first in its annual list of “Growth Cities.” U-Haul determines growth cities by calculating the net gain of one-way U-Haul trucks entering the city vs. leaving the city, according to the release.

Sacramento and Roseville are grouped as one market by U-Haul because of their proximity, according to the release. The market was ranked sixth on last year’s list.

Arrivals of U-Haul trucks in the Sacramento-Roseville market rose by 7 percentage points from the 2017 data, while departures rose by only 1 percentage point, the release said. Arriving trucks accounted for 51.8 percent of all U-Haul traffic in the area.

Real estate company Redfin recently found Sacramento to be the top destination for transplants in the country, with most new residents hailing from the Bay Area. https://www.sacbee.com/news/local/ar...dNQUlMLkNPTQ==

How about from Sacramento (and cities around) to Idaho?

Curious, maybe in second place.

Looking at my own (admittedly selfish) criteria, I'm not surprised.

I would never choose to move back to California, but if someone told me I had to move back and I could pick anywhere, I would pick the Sacramento metro (more specifically, probably Rocklin, Roseville, Folsom, or Fair Oaks or Carmichael).

Why? Primarily because it is the metro with sufficient local amenities that is closest to Tahoe.

For me that would mostly be re snow skiing. But for others.....there are other reasons people might want to be as close to Tahoe as possible.

Additionally, if Sacramento isn't sufficient for some one time or even intermttent need, it's not that far to the Bay Area.

I imagine at least a few people, if the choices were restricted to California, might share my priorities.

If that person didn't need to be near a major employment center (is self employed, could telecommute, or is retired), I can think of a few reasons:

- Might be even closer to lakes, fishing, boating, skiing, hunting, etc.

- Might want drier Summer weather.

- If someone is really afraid of earthquakes, one might seek out the Idaho Panhandle (IIRC, there aren't any fault lines in Idaho north of the 45th Parallel North).

- Politics.

- If one's income is high enough....taxes (although Spokane might make more sense in that case if someone didn't require every day access to the beauty of the Panhandle).

- Might want a 'more distinction between the seasons' area.

ETA: (as an addendum to the poster in post #4) Depending on the area, hosing might be cheaper per quare foot.

I understand that, but I'm just sayin'... I have a friend who moved from Oregon to Idaho four or five years ago and she kept complaining that it's the saddest, most depressing desolate place she's ever lived. I told her she was just a big whiner but last summer I went out to visit her and I had to agree it was pretty depressing. But that might be just where she lived in Idaho too, when I was young I lived in Mojave for a
while and I was sure that God had forsaken me.

When we moved out of Reno our choices of where to move were not restricted to any particular state but we picked Sacramento for many of the reasons you listed.

It's pretty difficult to find somewhere drier than Sac in the summer. Are you sure you don't mean "wetter?"

What? Sacramento California is the Number 1 destination? That can't be, the right wing media keeps telling us

People are leaving California in droves!
Escaping high taxes and smothering regulations!
Millions of illegal alien voters!
The state is going bankrupt tomorrow!
Poop maps!

You mean they might not be telling the truth?
