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.

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.

As the capital of California--the state with the largest population which boasts the world's 4th largest economy--Sacramento is a thriving city sprawled in the north-central part of the state just 1 1/2 hours inland from the San Francisco Bay Area. While Sacramento can reach temperatures of 110 degrees or higher in the summer months and has big trucks a-plenty, it has a lot going for it as well: well paying jobs, decent, clean and safe suburbs, good schools and a multitude of ways to have fun make Sacramento one of the most desirable family cities in America. While Sac Town may not have much of a scene for the under 40 crowd there are still places where young people can hang out and have fun. The American River is a popular party location, Sac State and UC Davis (in nearby Davis) supply the area's college scene and numerous restaurants, coffee and yogurt shops, bookstores and clubs provide ideal settings for the youth to meet and socialize. I grew up in Sacto and I'm always open to the idea of moving back there and settling down when I'm over 40 and have a family.
PA soccer mom: Honey, I'm tired of this depressing eastern landscape. I hate these harsh winters and I'm tired of looking at abandoned textile factories and farms on my way to work. Let's move to Sacramento, CA. I heard that it's the mecca of suburbia.

PA office park dad: You're right darling. The jobs pay very well out there and there aren't as many minorities. Besides, we can sit in our air conditioned house all day and stare at our neighbors through our mini-blinds. What is more fun than that?

PA soccer mom: But...you know there are those rednecks to worry about.

PA office park dad: Ah, don't worry about them. We'll live in Rocklin where the only rednecks we'll see will be the guy who looks like Axl Rose mowing our lawn.

PA family: Yay! Let's move to Sacramento!

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.

A city in northern California that all residents are brainwashed to think is the greatest Utopian paradise in the universe, but is really a boring city with nothing to do and no real economy besides the government. Anybody who has actually lived in a real, exciting, cultured city can't understand this mentality and can't get out of there fast enough.
Person 1: I'm from Paris.
Person 2: I'm from New York.
Person 3: I'm from San Francisco.
Person 4: I'm from Tokyo.
Person 5: I'm from Sacramento, which is just as large and great of a city as all of those and has just as much to do. Please take a pamphlet about my city and also have some kool-aid.

Person 1: I'm going to Detroit this weekend.

Person 2: Yuck, at least it's not Sacramento.
