Located in Northern Central California, an hour and a half east of Oakland and San Francisco, Sacramento is the capital city of California as well as county seat for Sacramento County. The port’s accessible by the San Joaquin Delta River and Sacramento River. In 1849, it became one of the first cities to establish their charter under state law after being registered with CA Legislature in 1850- making it America’s oldest registered city.
The city of Sacramento is known by many names. One of the most common, City of Trees, refers to the settlers during The Gold Rush who arrived looking for a place to grow their crops and settled in Sacramento. To handle the Valley heat these settlers planted trees which flourished in this climate and now cover nearly one quarter of Sacramento’s landscape.
