Sacramento City Guide
Apartment living in Sacramento has something to offer for everyone. From college students to professionals, families or just the average person looking for a good area to live, Sacramento will not disappoint.

Living in Sacramento is great for professionals. With the state capitol in town, plenty of government and state jobs reside in the area. The UC Davis Health System and Intel Corp. are also large players in the Sacramento area and finding apartments nearby is simple.

For college students looking to find cheap apartments to rent and save money, there are tons of apartments near Sacramento State University that are either within walking distance or a short bike ride to the campus. Look carefully and you will find plenty of inexpensive apartment homes that still have great pools and gyms with included utilities. Besides Sacramento State, UC Davis and American River College are within twenty minutes of Sacramento, thus making commuting easy with the added bonus of living in Sacramento’s energetic city.

Sacramento has a buzzing nightlife with restaurants, clubs and bars spread out all over the old town, downtown and midtown areas. Also, don’t forget about Second Saturdays, Sacramento’s unique community event located in downtown on the second Saturday of every month. During this event, artists show their art off on the streets and in stores, live bands play on the street corners, and art galleries and retailers are open late. Also, a number of music venues, museums and theatres house the area such The Ace of Spades, The Crocker Art Museum and Crest Theatre.

For the hot Californian summers, look to the American River for comfort. There are plenty of apartments near the American River that allow you simple access to the river beaches. Not only does the American River offer swimming, but a number of paved bike trails that can take you all the way up to Lake Natomas and Folsom where one can canoe and partake in other boating activities.

Of course, the regions around Sacramento offer plenty more and cheap and high-rated apartments abound in the neighboring communities. Natomas offers quick access to Sleeptrain Arena (and still easy access to Sacramento), while Rancho Cordova and Auburn will situate you closer to the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the amazing hiking and mountain activities they offer. Roseville and Citrus Heights are near Folsom Lake and host tons of shopping with several malls. Check out the apartment reviews for these regions and to see the best apartments in the area.

You’ll find plenty of well-reviewed apartments throughout Sacramento. From top rated to cheap apartments, apartments with included utilities, great amenities and spacious rooms and those more simplistic with affordable housing options. But what they all offer is close access to living in the heart of Sacramento.

I've lived in midtown for about eight months and it's been awesome. Everything is within walking distance or biking distance, there are tons of restaurants and bars, trees are EVERYWHERE, and it's pretty safe even late at night compared to a lot of areas.
