Jan 31, 2019

Yes, we get it, you live in San Francisco. It’s breathtakingly beautiful, there’s so much to do, from museums to hiking to hitting the beach, the restaurants are great, and the people are diverse and open-minded.


However, now you’ve had a kid (or two), and you’re realizing that you can’t survive in your small apartment anymore. What do you do? You could move to one of the fabulous suburbs of San Francisco, or you could consider a farther move, one that might have seemed crazy a few years ago, but that will offer an incredible lifestyle that you might not even be able to afford in the San Francisco suburbs. Answer: a move to Sacramento.


Sacramento is great for families for so many reasons, read on to find out why you should consider a move.
