The movers and shakers in Sacramento are drawn to Midtown for its energy and vibe. Comprised of residential and retail areas within a 13 by 22 block area near the state capitol, it’s where all the cool kids hang out. With hip restaurants, cafes and wine bars, it’s the place to be if you’re looking for nightlife and fine dining. The Second Saturday Art Walk brings thousands of residents out as they explore galleries and enjoy live music late into the evening. –source
Homes in the Mayberry-esque Land Park area are highly favored for their proximity to 166-acre William Land Park and the storybook quality of the neighborhoods. Large homes, primarily built between 1930-1950, are distinctive in their architecture; English cottages and Tudor-style homes sit alongside Mediterranean villas and Craftsman bungalows. Many of the area’s residents are original owners, and in some cases, homes are passed from generation to generation. It’s common for adult children to return to the neighborhood with their own families to have grandma and grandpa only blocks away. –source
Midtown and downtown are obvious areas for fast-paced twenty-somethings. South Land Park, however, is gaining the younger work force’s wallet share for three good reasons: location, space and price. The location provides great access to downtown. With well-built ranch homes in a safe neighborhood, South Land Park gives you the best bang for your buck. –source
The central city seems like the last place people would want to settle later in life, but heading that direction is a growing trend for empty nesters. They like the area’s walkability, the shorter commute to work and the easy access to cultural amenities.
Madeline Noell, a field agent for the Tapestri Square development at 21st and T streets in midtown, says empty nesters are the majority of their buyers. “They choose to move here because they want to be close to the entertainment they enjoy and not have to drive everywhere,” she says. “This is a lock-and-leave deal, so they can go travel for months at a time and don’t have to worry about who’s going to take care of the yard and the pool.” –source
"Originally developed in the 1920s –1940s, East Sacramento has managed to maintain a “small town” atmosphere with an old-fashioned, neighborhood feel. Stately mansions mingle comfortably with more modest brick homes on streets shaded by generous canopies of sycamore and elm trees. Charming bungalows and quaint cottages are often within walking distance of some of the city’s finest cafes and shops.
This rich architectural style, coupled with many small neighborhood business districts, makes East Sacramento one of Sacramento’s most coveted neighborhoods. Two U.S. presidents are most associated with East Sacramento; William McKinley, namesake of the popular McKinley Park, and Ronald Reagan, who lived in the neighborhood during his eight years as governor of California." –source
