Quoting Christel0:Your closet active military base would be Travis afb in Fairfield area about a 45 min drive. There are other bases around sac but I am not aware if them. I live next to Travis AFB . It's hot in sac but a lot of things you can find there for kids. Your a hour and a half away from San Fran. Cali is a great state. Wish I could stay here. Army is sending me to Baton Rouge Louisiana , ugh the heat is gonna kill me. Where are you coming from? Sac is very close to lake Tahoo
sacto is mostly city but you can go a little country in roseville, loomis and davis. there are tons of activities for kids, malls, downtown-old sac, fun stores, museums, good food. downtown sac is next to the river so is slightly cooler...my family loves the river walk near west sac. there are a lot of night clubs, bars, strip clubs, i'm not into that scene but i know several people who enjoy it. there's good and bad schools, i think as long as you are an involved parent in sschooling, any school can become great. there's also good and bad in every area. roseville is mainly white, kinda uppity rich ppl, west sac is an older railroad/rice mill town, on the smaller side very close to downtown. downtown is mainly single/business professional. davis is a college town and kinda country. natomas is good also, similar to roseville. my family is currently in south sac 1 exit away from elk grove. elk grove is desirable...hope to be there in a couple years lol. i haven't heard good things about oak park, lemon hill, del paso heights. we are renting right now...1100/mo we get 3 bd 2 ba large kitchen and front and back yard. older neighborhood but good house, park down the street school across the way and close to the freeway and shopping also.
hth, you can message me if you have more questions if you want...
how old are your kids? what are your interests? where would the school be?
I'm no help when it come to Sacramento, other than I drove through there going from Tahoe to San Fran a few weeks ago. But, I just have to say, everytime I see those commercials for UTI, I wonder why they would abbreviate a school with Urinary Tract Infection, LOL. Good luck to you guys.
It will actually be a post military move DH is looking at the UTI school there. We would be coming from WA state. He's at ft.lewis right now but we are both from south east wa.
