A terrible place to live.
and here is why:

1. Downtown sucks my ass

2. Our homeless problem has spread to our suburbs and is swiftly becoming a national joke

3. We have a Triple-A baseball team whose mascot is called "dinger."

4. Our NBA franchise, our lone major sports team, can't win the big one, has seen its' best years pass it by, and is itching to move to Las Vegas.

5. There are no real restaurants anywhere within 100 miles of here.

6. Our idea of a landmark is the downtown bridge. Gorgeous.

7. When people ask for recommendations of things to do in Sacramento, there are only two possible answers:
1. Long pause, followed by "See the capitol building!"

2. Tell them to keep driving until they get to San Francisco


8. We host the State Fair… a haven for hill people and white trash

9. Frisbee golf is considered acceptable recreation here.

10. The biggest sports debate in this town is which of the football teams, located 100 miles away from here, is your favorite.

11. Our fans at basketball games ring cow bells.

12. There is no freeway linking the two fastest growing counties (el Dorado and Placer). There are no plans for such a freeway. The roads that do connect the two (Sunrise and Hazel) are ALWAYS under construction.

13. The only time our city makes national news, it's negative. Think "Fire Department scandal."

14. Our idea of "great shopping," is a strip mall that has a "Barnes and Knoble," AND an "Old Navy." Classy.

15. We are surrounded by such lovely smaller cities as Lodi, Stockton, Modesto, Fairfield and Vacaville.

16. Our city's slogan is the "City of Trees." Not the city of lights, city by the bay or city that never sleeps…the city of trees. Wow, how utterly horticultural.

17. Most people move to California for the scenery, weather, culture, leisure activities and mind-set. We have none of that. People began the influx into Sacramento 10 years for one reason; it was cheap. Now we don't even have that.

18. Our city's nicknames are queer. Los Angeles is the "city of angels" (the only people in the nation that call it "la-la land" are jealous people from northern California). New Orleans is "the big easy." Chicago is "chi(shy)-town." What are we? "Sac"... you know, as in "ball sack."

19. Our second greatest landmark, after the bridge, is the river. The brown, disgusting river that homeless guys defecate in daily.

20. Of all of the major metropolitan areas in America, we have, hands down, the worst, most pathetic, most embarrassing airport in the nation. I will cede that it is trying to catch up now, but it has a long way to go.

21. We actually set up a tennis stadium in a mall parking lot... and we think it's perfectly ok to do so.

22. Actor Timothy Busfield is our most famous hometown celebrity.

23. Our official city flower is the "oleander."

24. People here think Granite Bay is where the rich and powerful live. Have you EVER been to Beverly Hills, La Jolla, Sausalito, or Long Island?

25. Our biggest agricultural claim to fame is…rice. Yes, flooded fields of rice.

26. Our zoo is crappy. It takes 37 minutes to walk the entire thing.

27. The only place to get a great steak in this town is at a chain restaurant.

28. Our hotels are horrible

29. the people here are terrible, bitchy people.

30. when returning to sacramento from a trip, you get the feeling of bitchyness while entering the city.
"Have you ever been to sacramento?"
"ya, i would rather live in hell!"

The capital of California. We now have a retard, Nazi Governor doing business there. Also known for excessive use of the word hella, being a "cow town" and having some dank herb.
I was born in Sacramento. I should've stayed, because Los Angeles is a place of moral decline.

The Capital of California, Sacramento is a medium-sized metropolitan area containing several layers of government: State, federal, county, city and even some military elements (though most military bases were closed in the '90s) Though some still believe it's a "Cow Town", there are several developments of late that have dispelled that image. Sacramento is not a bad city as cities go; we have many forms of entertainment, high-end restaurants, the State Fair, Old Sacramento and other attractions, including a yearly Jazz Festival. What the city lacks is a major tourist type attraction like Disneyland, or Great America. Luckily, Sacramento is within drivable distances to cities and beaches that DO attract tourists. The casinos springing up around the region do little to add to the entertainment choices. Some good concerts are staged on occasion, but that's not a regular thing. I think Sacramento is still struggling to emerge from it's rural roots, and is ready to grow into a major destination for all types of revenue producing industries, in addition to more appealing entertainment draws.
People drive from Sacramento to the Bay Area for most Major League sports, even though we do have AAA Baseball, and of course, our Kings basketball franchise. The region has everything it needs to become a major player in any form of industry and/or tourist attractions. It is to Sacramento's disadvantage that their populations seek these types of entertainment elsewhere.

Where people don't know how to drive and foreigners congregate. If you move to Sacramento it's mandatory that you get something on your car that says "Kings", you also must say "hella" ten times a day.
I was thinking of moving to Stockton but Sacramento didn't suck as much.

You would think by listening to the news and the radio that Sacramento is the greatest city to live in ! NEVER ! This city has so many bad points that it is hard to list them all.

1. Bad weather and excesive heat/cold, too much pollen in the spring due to the proud amount of trees

2. the city has no real culture. they think their jazz scene is hot when once a year Sacramento has the Dixieland Jazz Festival which they found out it does not attract people. Hence , the new name of the jazz festival. There is a very cliche jazz scene but no real talent . This scene likes to play in Colleges. Have you ever heard of the classy bar Yoshis in San Francisco ? Need I say more ?
Most of the artist and musicians have an attitudude as if they are on the same level as truly cultural citys . Furthermore, they put down real citys and they are big fishes in a little dirty bowl.

3. In general , the people are so bored and maybe religious that they constantly judge others when it is none of their f+CKin business what others do and if they don't approve, they go out on a mission to destory your sabotage or discredit others that they are jealous or don't like .

4. They don't know class and think they are living the high life in Granite Bay, Folsom and the fab 40s.. Ever hear of Lauguna Beach, Newport Beach, San Diego and San Francisco ! Or do you just adopt the attitude that everything else sucks since you have never travelled there. ! I am sorry just a trip to Disneyland is not enough to judge Southern Cal.

5. There are a bunch of lemmings who follow each other here . If you are an individual you are consider odd and mental. You are considered to be marked or insulted if you have different opinions on other places that are better than Sacramento. This town has a severe inferiority complex .

6. The majority of the people are state workers who suck of the titty of California. There is so much waste in jobs that California is nearly bankrupt ! There are incompetant workers with a poor work ethnic because bureacy are poor managed, inefficient and it is not there money !
sacramento sucks sac balls
by I hate Sacramento too June 26, 2009
probably the worst place in california to grow up. you are hours away from the beach and the mountains. the only thing to do is go to the polluted sacramento river, or if you are further up, the american river. there is no night life or anything to do unless you are over 21, then you get to frequent the numerous shit dive bars that are run by red necks. there are 3 clubs here and they suck donkey balls. downtown is cool for about 5 whole minuets. its hotter then hell here in the summer (100 degrees plus) and it rains 4 months out of the year in the winter. the kings suck dick. It is a fucking cowtown, i've lived here all my life. 5 minuets from sacramento there are fucking cows and rice fields. don't come here unless you want more motivation to kill yourself.
guy 1: "hey i'm going to sacramento for a wedding"

guy 2:"i'm sorry to hear that."
