As its name suggests, this beautiful tree-lined neighborhood is located just east of downtown Sacramento. It’s home to the historic and upscale Fabulous Forties neighborhood as well as landmarks such as McKinley Park and an impressive selection of local restaurants and boutique retail stores which makes this one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Sacramento.
You can easily drop in on your favorite local coffee shop, browse a fashion boutique, or experience Sacramento’s famous “Farm to table” cuisine at any one of the many eateries or brew pubs. Other favorite activities include hiking and biking the American River Parkway trail that borders East Sacramento’s River Park subdivision, lounging in McKinley Park and its award-winning classical rose garden, or exploring the leafy canopied streets of the Fab Forties and Elmhurst Parkway by foot or on your favorite cruiser bicycle.
East Sacramento is just a stone’s throw from Sacramento State University, the Pavilions shopping center, and Loehmann’s Plaza, featuring even more of Sacramento’s favorite local and regional retailers and some of Sacramento’s best restaurants.
And if you want to see what “Sacramento community” really feels like, stick around for any number of holidays to see what happens when people come together — 4th of July parades, droves of children on Halloween, or take a drive down one of these streets around the holidays and immerse yourself in a sparkling winter wonderland.
