Access to Downtown Sacramento 

What’s better than living in the middle of all of the hustle and bustle of downtown Sacramento? Living close enough to enjoy it without the price tag is first on the list of the top 7 reasons to live in Sacramento. West Sac has done a lot of work in the past few years to develop itself with new homes, lots of parks, and community areas that allow for a more relaxed lifestyle, with all of the perks of luxury.

If you’re ever in need of going to downtown Sacramento for any of the events or activities of a larger city, you’re only 10-20 minutes away! How convenient is that? What a luxury it is to be able to enjoy the qualities of a big city while being able to retreat to a slower-paced lifestyle. 

The Barn

Although downtown Sacramento might host a lot of events and activities, we have our own too! Here in Sacramento, one of our favorite spots is at Drake’s: The Barn. This spot is a great community gathering place, located close to the river and a short five-minute drive from The Strand Apartments.

At The Barn, you can enjoy food, beer, and lots of entertainment. Its unique design also makes it an architectural landmark in West Sacramento.

Depending on their schedule, you can enjoy live music or the skyline. It’s free to enjoy and everyone is welcome. Their next upcoming event is Smore’s and Stouts – how fun is that!

Head down to Drake’s whenever you get the chance and stay awhile! Follow them on Instagram to get all the latest news about past and future events @drakesthebarn.

Play Ball!

Sacramento is home to many parks and recreational areas. Our favorite place to catch a game is at Sutter Health Park. This baseball stadium is the perfect place to be on a sunny day.

Aside from baseball, it also holds events like Cirque du Soleil. How cool is that! Stop by for crackerjacks or catch a show, whatever you’d like!

River Walk Park 

Another park nearby The Strand Apartments on Douglas street is The River Walk Park. This park is the perfect place to go to enjoy a scenic walk. West Sacramento is such a beautiful place to live and has lots of nature to enjoy.

Take a stroll through the park and across the Tower Bridge for unique views and a peaceful afternoon. Grab a friend and a picnic basket to make an afternoon out of it! This park is also a great spot if you’re looking for a nice path to jog or cycle on. This spot definitely makes the list of the top 7 reasons to live here in West Sacramento.
