Sacramento, meaning most holy sacrament refers to the Catholic Eucharist, is the capital of California. Known as one of the more underrated cities in the state, remote workers are quickly setting their sights on coliving spaces around town.
There is no shortage of amazing food here - in fact, Sacramento has been dubbed the farm to fork capital of America with over 40 farmers markets supplying products across the country. It’s also described at an underrated coffee hub - a must-have for digital nomads planning a coliving adventure.
The climate in town is quite enjoyable year-round. Winter is a bit milder than the Bay Area as it avoids those Pacific coastal winds. Nicknamed the city of trees, the abundance of elms, oaks, and sycamores can lower the temperature considerably on a hot day.
If you’re staying outside of the downtown area, travel by car is ideal. Should you decide to cycle you’ll find yourself flying past cars stuck in traffic. Regional busses are available and easy.
Sacramento has plenty to do in town - parks, an NBA team, and Little Saigon where you can enjoy a taste of Vietnam. If you want a truly unique experience, check out the Dive Bar - grab a drink below a 7,500-gallon water tank and watch mermaids and mermen swim around while you sip.
With a 90-mile drive to San Francisco and 100 miles to Lake Tahoe, exciting trips outside the city are easy to plan.
