Sacramento is the capital city of the U.S. state of California and the seat of Sacramento country, also known as the City of Plains, and The City of Trees, because of the wide variety of color-changing trees including Maples and Ginkgo trees.
The city lies on the same-name river and is the center of a region that encompasses Elk Grove and Roseville, which are some very popular destinations along with Cameron Park, Auburn, Folsom, and Orangevale. It’s the sixth-largest town in California, with approximately 500,000 residents, which also makes it the ninth-largest in the US. The climate is the same as the Mediterranean; summers are hot and dry, but the humidity is high that can be harder to tolerate, and the winters are mild and manageable. It rarely snows in Sacramento.
Life in the city is reminiscent of one large green park, due to the various types of trees, especially in the Central Valley Region; like oaks, elms, sycamores that are planted because of the big heats in the summer.
If you want to visit this city, you won’t be sorry, since there are many interesting things you are able to do.
