Where should we start when it comes to learning about Sacramento? It is the capital of the state and has so much to offer with business and industry, as a residential location, a political hub, and a recreation destination. The city of Sacramento is located at the confluence, or meeting point of the Sacramento and American Rivers.
The population of over 524,000 is one of the most diverse in California and is growing rapidly. It is a hipster population with many cultural and job opportunities within the city. Sacramento manages to blend the past and the present in an eclectic way that continues attracting young professionals, retirees, and everyone in between.

Pros and Cons of Production Spaces in Sacramento
Sometimes everything just clicks into place and feels right, and that is the way most people feel about this city. However, there are some pros and cons of production space in Sacramento to consider.
- The weather
Sacramento enjoys the same mild weather and Mediterranean climate that we see in other northern California cities. It can get hot in the summer months, but in general, it is a beautiful place to be any time of year, and the weather is almost always pleasant during the winter months.
- City of trees
Sacramento earned the nickname the City of Trees because they have more trees than all the other cities in the world. The city takes immense pride in its urban forest, and that benefits everyone who lives and works here. Trees are also well cared for under the city’s urban forestry plan.
The cost of living is lower in Sacramento than in other California cities, and that transfers over to production space options and everything else you will want to do while visiting. In the grand scheme of your budget, this might not seem important, but it does add up.
- Flood risk
The Sacramento and American Rivers are both beautiful but also present a flood risk. The city is about 100 square miles total in size, and much of that is reserved as flood plain areas for the floods that the municipal officials know will happen. Although the droughts have lessened this risk, they should still be kept in mind.
- Crime rates
Unfortunately, the crime rate is higher in Sacramento than in other cities by a whopping 32% when compared to the national average. The city is taking steps to lower the crime rate, but it is still higher, and precautions should be taken while visiting.
The streets of Sacramento are busier than ever, and that can make getting to and from your production space a bit more challenging. Take the extra traffic into account and plan your day accordingly (or let your private transportation company know) so that you ensure you are where you need to be on time.
Famous Locations in Sacramento
- California State Capitol Building
The state capitol building in each state is unique and usually a little awe-worthy. But the California State Capitol Building is something to behold. It is a majestic and stately building with a museum documenting the history of the state. It is situated on 37 acres and the gardens are as enticing as the interior of the building.
- Discovery Park
Discovery Park is 302-acres of greenway and water access. It is part of the flood control area for Sacramento as it is located where the American River meets the Sacramento River, and in the winter, it is common to see parts of it underwater, which is pretty cool itself. Obviously, river access and water sports are popular here, but there is also a bike/walking trail, softball field, picnic areas, and more.
- California State Railroad Museum
The California State Railroad Museum helps document the history of the state, and how the “iron horse” connected California with the rest of the country. Even those that are not huge railroad fans are awed by the history, and one of our favorite features is the 50-minute train ride along the Sacramento River.
