About the Area

Guy West Bridge

Sacramento is one of California’s most affordable large cities, offering dozens of top-quality restaurants, galleries, shopping centers and boutiques within minutes of campus.

The region’s parks, rivers and nearby recreation areas make it popular with outdoors enthusiasts. And San Francisco, the Napa and Sonoma valleys, the Gold Country and Lake Tahoe are all within easy driving distance. If you are new to the area, be sure to check out the midtown Sacramento area for great nightlife, concerts, parks and coffee shops.

If you are a bicyclist or runner, the American River Parkway bike trail runs along the edge of campus and offers many opportunities for a great ride.
