Sacramento, California awaits you! You will be in close proximity to beaches, mountains, and famous wine regions of Napa. The old west town center of Sacramento surrounds a beautiful capitol area with lots of bars and restaurants along the Sacramento river. We live about a 3-minute walk from the 26-mile American River Bike Trail where you can walk, jog, bike and enjoy wildlife. We are also 15 minutes from the downtown area. For day trips, you can visit the nearby historic towns where gold was discovered. There is shopping, restaurants, and the best sun you will ever find.

In the summer it can get hot but with that comes an abundance of local fruits and vegetables if you love to cook (like we do). The heat is very dry so thankfully we do not get any humidity. You can always cool off in San Francisco or Lake Tahoe, both a 1.5 hour drive from Sacramento. The best beaches are in Bodega Bay (1hr) or Baker Beach in San Francisco (1.5 hrs). Lake Folsom is only 20 minutes from our home (great for water-skiing!). We have friendly neighbors and lots of family nearby to help acquaint you if you wish. We've exchanged with a French family who enjoyed our home as a base to explore some further away sites as well, such as Yosemite. We have a solid car to exchange, a good kitchen for cooking, and a very spacious home for you to enjoy.
