Where To Find Your Dream Condo – Sacramento County in California

Sacramento County, Florida Introduction
Sacramento County is the center of the Greater Sacramento Metropolitan Area, taking up just under 1000 square miles of California’s lush Central Valley. It borders in ‘Gold Country’, but the real gold in Sacramento County is the real estate. Here you’ll find plenty of Sacramento County condos, but also sought-after single family homes with big yards on tree-lined avenues and student-friendly low-rises by the grounds of a local university.

In this article we’ll explore the city of Sacramento, as well as some of its most sought-after neighborhoods – exactly the kinds of places people looking for a condo in Sacramento County need to know about! However, we’ll also explore the nearby cities of Folsom and Citrus Heights, and discuss why people interested in buying or renting condos in Sacramento County should not overlook them. We’ll explore the county’s general climate and weather patterns, and what the people in Sacramento County do for fun. Finally, we’ll help you imagine yourself living there.

Sacramento has a long history, from the native Californians who tended the area for tens of thousands of years, to the Spanish Empire, Mexico and finally the United States. It has seen land rushes, gold rushes and more political maneuvering than would fit in a book. Today we invite you to explore a little of its present and its past, and to imagine yourself becoming a part of its future!



The Climate in Sacramento County
Sacramento County is set on a coastal plain with just one substantial hill, Carpenter Hill in Folsom. It has several waterways, but the weather itself is fairly dry.

The high temperatures in July top out at around 93 degrees F in Sacramento County, and the average low temperature in January is 39 degrees F. Freezing temperatures are unusual, but not unheard-of. Sacramento County is very sunny, with the average year producing 265 sunny days. That is a solid 2 more months of sun every year than the US average.


Things To See And Do In Sacramento County
Sacramento County is mostly given over to the Sacramento Metropolitan Area. However, there are many wonderful state, county and city parks, as well as the entertainment of the city itself close at hand.

While searching for a Sacramento County condo for sale, why not also spend some time visiting Old Sacramento State Historic Park, seeing the California State Railroad Museum, touring the Crocker Art Museum, or seeing the animals at the Sacramento Zoo? You could try exploring Abandoned Sutter’s Fort, touring the California State Capitol Museum, visiting the California Automobile Museum, seeing a show at the B Street Theater, sightseeing at the Cathedral Of The Blessed Sacrament, or learning about the region’s native peoples at the California State Indian Museum or the California Museum.

History of Sacramento County California

Sacramento Canyon

A History of Sacramento County

The part of California that would become Sacramento County has been occupied by various native American groups for at least 19,000 years, and possibly longer. A few of the peoples who lived in the area include the Maidu and Nisenan.

The movement of European peoples into the region after contact was slow, until the discovery of gold in 1848. After that, Europeans came in droves, mostly from other parts of Mexico and the United States which had been settled long before.

By 1850, California was formally made a US State, and Sacramento County was one of the original divisions. It would be some time before there were any condos in Sacramento County, but population built steadily until the region held more than 1.5 million people in 2020.
