“Anybody who talks about California hedonism has never spent a Christmas in Sacramento.” This Joan Didion quote frames the opening of Greta Gerwig's Golden Globe-nominated film, “Lady Bird,” and it tells you all you need to know about the Capitol City’s reputation. Or should we say its former reputation?
Sacramento was once thought of as a sleepy government city and “cow town” — but that’s quickly a-changing. The latest evidence of Sacramento’s evolution arrived with Sunset Magazine’s new list of “20 Game-Changing Places to Live,” set to be published in their February 2018 issue. Sacramento topped the list, thanks to a nearly 10-year real estate and cultural boom that has brought the arts, entertainment and trendy farm-to-fork restaurants to town. Long considered a more affordable living alternative than the Bay Area, Sacramento has a lot going for it. People who lead active lifestyles will appreciate the range of amenities and local recreational opportunities at their disposal, such as the 23-mile American River Parkway, the 11 miles of hiking trails at Cosumnes River and Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge. In fact, Sacramento also ranked high on WalletHub's list of "2018's Best Cities for an Active Lifestyle," which analyzed factors such as average monthly fitness-club fees, bike scores, weather, as well as the number of hiking, running and walking trails.
Communities such as Natomas also bring together some of the best living opportunities that Sacramento has to offer. Set near two major freeways including Interstate 5, the Sacramento International Airport, and downtown Sacramento, Natomas is a scenic neighborhood teeming with beautiful state and local parks such as North Natomas Regional Park and Quail Park, restaurants like Bella Bru and Malabar, great nearby shopping at Park Place Mall and The Promenade outdoor shopping complex, plus a wealth of business centers and excellent schools such as Inderkum High School, Heron School and California State University, Sacramento.
When it comes to living in and around Natomas, there are plenty of options, and two apartment communities fit the bill: Avanti and Granite Point in the heart of North Natomas, both managed by our team at E&S Ring Management. Let’s explore them further:
