There is a soul and swagger being experienced in Sacramento that has not been seen since the founding of the river city. As a region rooted in both innovation and agriculture, Sacramento is not just celebrating its place as the location where California started, but also literally planting its flag as a destination for business, future workforces, and oh – amazing beer, wine and food.

The region has once again embraced its indomitable spirit and instead of moving rivers it is now its own movement. Sacramento is a place to live, work and play in which its diversity, spectacular surroundings and thriving downtown is not just embodied as a way of life, but also is embedded in the lives of those that live here. We are a Republic and Sacramento is our home.
