The City of Sacramento (population 400,018)
Sacramento skylineis the cultural, educational, business and governmental center of a four - county metropolitan region. As California's capitol city, Sacramento is center stage for governmental policy for the entire state. A dynamic business sector, an expanding public transportation system (including Light Rail), affordable housing, and growing cultural, educational, and medical facilities serve the needs of 1.5 million people.

Founded in 1849, Sacramento was California's first charter city and is at the heart of California history – the gold rush, Pony Express and first continental railroad all began in Sacramento. The confluence of two of the state's largest rivers is just a short walk from the steps of City Hall. San Francisco, Lake Tahoe and Yosemite Valley, all offering a wide variety of recreational and cultural activities, are just a few hours away. The city's rich historical heritage, commitment to quality of life, and abundance of trees and parkland contributed to Newsweek magazine naming Sacramento one of the ten best cities in the United States.

Sacramentans enjoy professional ballet, opera, theater, outstanding museums, one of the best small zoos in the country, and the NBA's Sacramento Kings. Each year the city hosts the world's largest Dixieland Jazz Jubilee, and many other recreational, entertainment and cultural activities.

American RiverSacramento has also become one of California's main tourist centers. The restored State Capitol, miles of rivers and river parkways, North America's largest railroad museum, and the Old Sacramento restoration are just a few of the City's many attractions. The region is served by law schools, a California State University, a University of California campus, and numerous community colleges.

Sacramento is a progressive city with great pride in its ethnic and cultural diversity, concern for environmental and social issues, and emphasis on quality in the provision of governmental services.

Sacramento County was incorporated in 1850 as one of the original 27 counties of the State of California. The County's largest city, the City of Sacramento, is the seat of government for the State of California and also serves as the county seat. Sacramento became the State Capital in 1854. The County is the major component of the Sacramento Metropolitan Statistical Area ("SMSA") which includes Sacramento, El Dorado, and Placer Counties.

Sacramento County encompasses approximately 994 square miles in the middle of the 400-mile long Central Valley, which is California’s prime agricultural region. The County is bordered by Contra Costa and San Joaquin Counties on the south, Amador and El Dorado Counties on the east, Placer and Sutter Counties on the north, and Yolo and Solano Counties on the west. Sacramento County extends from the low delta lands between the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers north to about ten miles beyond the State Capitol and east to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The southernmost portion of Sacramento County has direct access to the San Francisco Bay.

Sacramento County is a long-established center of commerce for the surrounding area. Trade and services, federal, state and local government, and food processing are important economic sectors. Visitors are attracted to the County by the State Capitol and other historical attractions such as Sutter's Fort, as well as natural amenities. The County's location at the intersection of four major highways brings additional visitors destined for the San Francisco Bay Area, the Gold Country, the Central Valley and the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
