California’s capital, Sacramento, is located 90 miles northeast of San Francisco and 100 miles southwest of Lake Tahoe, providing locals with both active city adventures and natural beauty within driving distance. Sacramento’s climate is considered to be Mediterranean-we enjoy mild temperatures with plenty of sunshine.

The city center, near SNAHC’s J Street location, is home to the Sacramento Ballet, Sacramento OperaSacramento Theatre Company and California Musical Theatre. There are also over 30 theaters, public galleries and museums in the city; the downtown Crocker Art Museum, founded in 1885, is the oldest in the West. Each month, during the Second Saturday Art Walk, private galleries in Midtown open their doors to the public with special shows and live entertainment. Night clubs throughout town range from quiet piano bars to folk, pop, hip-hop, country western and rock & roll. Considered the “Farm-to-Fork” capital of America, Sacramento is home to some of the best dining options in the region. Local restaurants utilize the abundance of regionally grown products to create a Farm-to-Fork freshness that’s unparalleled.

South Sacramento, near SNAHC’s Florin Road location, is a hub for cultural activities and home to Little Saigon, Valley Hi-Mack Road Farmer’s Market, Sojourner Truth African Heritage Museum Events and Exhibitions, and Sacramento Summer Night Lights. Community artisans and vendors specialize in goods and services from Vietnam, China, India, Cambodia, Korea, and the Philippines.

In a city bound by two rivers, water recreation tops the list for outdoor activities: salmon and steelhead fishing, river rafting and boating can all be enjoyed on the over 1,000 miles of waterways around Sacramento and the Delta. Nearby Folsom Lake and Lake Natoma offer sailing and windsurfing, as well as bike paths that connect back to the downtown waterfront.

Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD) is one of the oldest K-12 districts in the western United States (established in 1854). SCUSD serves 43,175 students on 75 campuses spanning 76 square miles. SCUSD is home to a 2013 California Distinguished School (West Campus High School), the only public Waldorf-inspired high school in the nation (George Washington Carver) and the only Hmong language immersion program in the state (Susan B. Anthony Elementary School).  Alumni from SCUSD’s schools include U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye, nationally renowned political scholar Dr. Cornel West and author Joan Didion. Recent graduates from SCUSD are currently attending Harvard, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UC Davis and host of other prestigious universities.

For those residing outside of the city center, there are 11 additional school districts supporting K-12 education and development. The region is also home to numerous colleges and universities.
