The city of Sacramento is a tapestry of cultures and neighborhoods. When visiting, there are several great areas to stay in that will satisfy every traveler’s taste and budget. Your vacation can take on different feels depending on where you stay in Sacramento.
Trendy Midtown is the area where you will find lovely boutique hotels that are right in the middle of the hottest restaurants and nightclubs. Grab a glass of vino at a wine bar while people-watching and then shop ’til you drop at upscale stores. Everything is an easy walk in Midtown Sacramento.
Budget travelers will enjoy Tahoe Park. Close to Downtown, this family-friendly neighborhood is built around a 19-acre park and is full of affordable dining and hotels due to its proximity to Sac State.
Enjoy a fairytale vacation in Sacramento by staying in the southwest neighborhood of Land Park. Large midcentury homes abound, as well as Tudors, Mediterranean villas, and Craftsman bungalows. This is a hopping area for families, because it’s near the Sacramento Zoo and Fairytale Town – a park with child-size play sets based on popular fairytales. There are several golf courses to play on too. Land Park has a nice selection of lodgings in all price ranges.
Natomas is another neighborhood great for those on a budget. This up-and-coming area is bordered by the Sacramento River on the west side. The State Capitol Museum, Governor’s Mansion, and Old Sacramento State Historic Park are located here, as well as the Sacramento Kings’ Sleep Train Arena. Most of the hotels are located near the arena and you can find midrange hotels with large rooms there.
Technically its own city, Elk Grove is also considered a neighborhood in South Sacramento. Situated on acres of farmland, the city is growing fast and is perfect for those who don’t want to stay in the middle of the crowded city. It offers many 3- and 4-star options for reservations with a great selection of shops and restaurants to keep you busy if you don’t want to drive into Sacramento proper.
