When it comes to California cities, places like Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco seem to get all of the attention. But we think the capital city Sacramento has an awful lot going for it. If you move there soon, you'll be able to tell your friends you were a local before it was cool. Because trust us, with its central location, active cultural and arts scene, and historic landmark buildings, Sacramento's getting cooler all the time.
You'll probably be hungry after taking in all of the sights, but Sacramento has you covered. Known as the farm-to-fork capital of the United States, California's capital boasts an extensive assortment of eateries devoted to the locavore movement. And even if you don't much care about the politics or environmental implications of locavorism, you can't deny the appeal of farm-fresh food. Standout examples include Hock Farm Craft & Provisions, the James Beard-nominated Kitchen, and the forward-thinking Enotria. If you weren't already certain about buying a home in Sacramento, just sampling the menu at any one of those fine eateries should seal the deal.
