Because Sacramento has more trees than any Califoria metropolitan area, it is often called, "The City of Trees." Divided into several counties, including Sacramento, El Dorado, Placer, Sutter-Yuba, and Yolo, the Sacramento area presents a variety of landscapes and features.
Sacramento, as a whole, is made up of about 50% Caucasians, with the other half comprised mostly of Hispanic, Asian, African, and Native American descent. The diversity of the city has earned it the description of "America's Most Integrated City."
Old Sacramento, or downtown, is the most popular neighborhood in Sacramento, with its historic buildings, shops, and restaurants. Starting from here, the American River Parkway , a 26-mile hiking and biking trail, meanders alongside the river all the way to Folsom. It is a popular destination for outdoor lovers.
Large, old elm, ash, and oak trees line the streets of the Elmhurst neighborhood, and a home designed by Julia Morgan, is found here. Valley View Acres is a rural "Eden" in the midst of the city and hosts several yearly community events.
Land Park is a beautiful residential neighborhood home to family-friendly attractions such as the popular park of the same name, Fairytale Town and the Land Park Zoo.
East Sacramento offers many unique restaurants and cafes as well as the popular McKinley Park.
Arden is a community bordered on the south by the American River Parkway. Here are found many malls, boutiques, and restaurants, as well as outdoor musical performances in the summertime.
Half the size of Arden is Carmichael, about 10 miles from downtown Sacramento. Palm trees, planted around 1913, are a unique feature of this once rural, now suburban community.
