Regional composition[edit] The Greater Sacramento area is composed of eight counties, two metropolitan areas and two micropolitan areas. The following counties are located in the Greater Sacramento area: Douglas County, Nevada El Dorado County, California Nevada County, California Placer County, California Sacramento County, California Sutter County, California Yolo County, California Yuba County, California El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento and Yolo counties comprise the Sacramento–Arden-Arcade–Roseville, California Metropolitan Statistical Area. Sutter and Yuba counties comprise the Yuba City Metropolitan Statistical Area, known as the Yuba-Sutter Area. Nevada County comprises the Truckee-Grass Valley Micropolitan Area, and Douglas County comprises the Gardnerville Ranchos micropolitan area.


Overview[edit] The California State Capitol Building Greater Sacramento straddles two key regions of California, the Central Valley and Sierra Nevada mountains and is overlapped by the cultural influences of three areas, the Bay Area, Eastern California and Northern California. An increasing phenomenon taking shape in Greater Sacramento is growth of urban sprawl as Sacramento and its metropolitan area continue to expand. The growth is due in part to first, higher costs of living in the Bay Area which have caused commuters to move as far as Yolo and Sacramento counties and more recently, growth and rising living costs in the core of Sacramento, building up more areas in the surrounding counties for commuters. Local and state governments are trying to prevent destruction of forests and open land and curbing the spread before Sacramento faces an urban sprawl crisis as the Greater Los Angeles Area has. It is the only interstate MSA/CSA in California.[2] Sacramento is the largest city in the metropolitan area, home to nearly 470,000, making it the sixth largest city in California and the 35th largest in the United States. It has been the state capital of California since 1851 and has played an important role in the history of California. When gold was discovered in nearby Sutter's Mill in Coloma, Sacramento became a boom town luring in migrants making their way from San Francisco to the gold fields of the Sierras. Although it did not become the financial and cultural center of Northern California, titles that were given to San Francisco, Sacramento became the largest transportation hub of not only Northern California, but also the West Coast following the completion of the First Transcontinental Railroad. Sacramento today continues to be one of the largest rail hubs in North America, and its rail station is one of the busiest in the United States. In 2002, Time Magazine featured an article recognizing Sacramento as the most diverse and integrated city in America.[3] Government (state and federal) jobs are still the largest sector of employment in the city and the city council does considerable effort to keep state agencies from moving outside the city limits.[4] The remainder of Sacramento County is suburban in general with most of the working population commuting to Downtown Sacramento and with a smaller proportion commuting all the way to the Bay Area. Squaw Valley, the site of the 1960 Winter Olympics Yolo County serves as a commuter region as most of its working population commutes either to the Bay Area or Sacramento for work but is home to the University of California, Davis campus, the northernmost UC campus and only UC campus in the Greater Sacramento region. El Dorado and Placer Counties form the remainder of the inner core of Greater Sacramento and are composed of the Sierra foothills and mountains. The western areas of the counties are composed of commuter suburbs to Sacramento while the eastern areas border Lake Tahoe and are home to numerous ski resorts and towns such as South Lake Tahoe, site of the Heavenly Mountain Resort, which are popular in winter months and nature camps and resorts in summer months. Placer County has been an important mining area not only for gold, but also other minerals and granite. It is also the site of Squaw Valley, which hosted the 1960 Winter Olympics, which has been up to date, the only Winter Olympic Games to be held in California and the US West Coast and the smallest city to host an Olympics. Stateline is an important Tahoe resort town on the shores of Lake Tahoe. The Yuba-Sutter Area consists of Yuba and Sutter counties and is a primarily agricultural area, although the southern area is more suburban in character. It is home to Sunsweet Growers, which owns the world's largest dried fruit plant in Yuba City. Nevada County, like El Dorado and Placer Counties, borders Lake Tahoe and contains numerous ski resorts such as the Boreal Mountain Resort, but is more rural than the former two counties and is an important gold mining area. The Donner Memorial State Park is located in the county, where the ill-fated Donner Party was trapped in winter storms in 1846–47 while attempting to make it to California on a poorly organized trip. Douglas County, is the only county in Nevada in the Greater Sacramento area and is the only non-Californian county to be located in a California metropolitan region. The addition of Douglas County is recent, as Greater Sacramento continues to grow beyond its inner region, Western Nevada continues to be influenced by Sacramento and California and their cultures.[5] This gradual "Californiazation" of Western Nevada is the work of a theory of an expanding megapolitan area of Northern California which is believed to be part of a "California megalopolis" stretching from Greater Los Angeles to Greater Sacramento and including the Bay Area and Metropolitan Fresno, in a similar urbanization idea as the Northeast megalopolis that includes the New York City, Philadelphia and Washington D.C. areas.[6] Douglas County is home of Tahoe resorts and casinos as well as suburban outskirts of Sacramento and Reno.


Geography and climate[edit] Geography[edit] A cove inside the Sacramento River delta The western half of Greater Sacramento is centered on the Central Valley, one of the most vital agricultural areas in the country. The Sierra Nevada and its foothills compose the eastern portion of the region. Yolo County contains a large flood control basin. The Sacramento River and the American River are major rivers that form a deepwater port connected to the San Francisco Bay by a channel through the Sacramento River Delta. Coniferous and oak dominated woodland are prevalent in the Sierra Nevada and the Lake Tahoe area. Climate[edit] Sacramento and the valley area have a Mediterranean climate (Köppen Csa), characterized by damp to wet, cool winters and hot, dry summers. The wet season is generally October through April. Summer heat is often moderated by a sea breeze known as the "delta breeze" which comes through the Sacramento–San Joaquin River Delta from the San Francisco Bay.[7] January is the coolest month for the entire region with an average maximum of 41.0 °F (5.0 °C) and an average minimum of 15.1 °F (-9.4 °C) in Lake Tahoe. The eastern portion of Greater Sacramento experiences a more varied climate with 90 °F (32.2 °C) temperatures in August to below freezing temperatures in winter. In higher elevations, freezing temperatures have been recorded every month. In the winter, below freezing temperatures are common in Sacramento and lower valley elevations although snowfall is scarce and usually melts on ground contact with significant snowfall occurring roughly every 3–5 years. However, blizzard conditions in winter storms can be common in the higher elevations.[8][9]

Males had a median income of $43,572 versus $31,889 for females. The per capita income for the MSA was $23,508.


Transportation[edit] Interstate 80 near the Donner Summit in wintertime Owing to its central location between the Bay Area and Nevada border, Greater Sacramento is a key transportation hub into Northern California. While the region doesn't have an extensive public transportation system as the San Francisco Bay Area, Greater Sacramento has had an earlier history of public mass transit and is served by a vast freeway system as well as some light rail. Freeways and highways[edit] Sacramento is served by numerous highways. Five highways merge in the Capital City Corridor, serving the immediate downtown Sacramento area. The major freeways of the Greater Sacramento area are Interstate 80, U.S. Route 50, Interstate 5 and State Route 99, which serve the northern Tahoe area, southern Tahoe area, and valley areas respectively as well as forming the Capital City Corridor along with Interstate 80 Business. Outside downtown Sacramento, there is only one principal route that serves its respective area and there are smaller state routes as well. Freeways and highways in the Greater Sacramento areas include: Interstate 5 Interstate 80 Interstate 505 U.S. Route 50 U.S. Route 395 Interstate 80 Business California State Route 12 California State Route 16 California State Route 20 California State Route 28 California State Route 45 California State Route 49 California State Route 65 California State Route 70 California State Route 89 California State Route 99 California State Route 104 California State Route 113 California State Route 128 California State Route 160 California State Route 174 California State Route 193 California State Route 220 California State Route 244 California State Route 267 Nevada State Route 28 Nevada State Route 88 Nevada State Route 206 Nevada State Route 207 Nevada State Route 208 Nevada State Route 756 Nevada State Route 757 Nevada State Route 759 Rail[edit] Sacramento is the largest rail hub west of the Mississippi River and was the first terminus of the First Transcontinental Railroad before it extended to Oakland. The Sacramento Station is the largest train station in the region, near Old Sacramento, and is connected by the Coast Starlight, California Zephyr, San Joaquins, Capitol Corridor and Thruway Motorcoach Amtrak routes. The Sacramento Regional Transit District is the local transit agency for Sacramento County and operates three light rail routes, the Blue Line, Green Line, and Gold Line, along 42.9 mi (69 km) of right-of-way that serve Sacramento and its immediate suburbs. Other train stations in the Greater Sacramento area are Davis, Roseville, Rocklin, Auburn, Colfax and Truckee. Air[edit] The main airport servicing Greater Sacramento is the Sacramento International Airport north of downtown while the Sacramento Mather Airport, Sacramento Executive Airport and Minden-Tahoe Airports provide general aviation. The Reno-Tahoe International Airport in Reno provides more direct access to Lake Tahoe than Sacramento International. For a wider range of destinations, residents must travel down to San Francisco International Airport, the largest airport in Northern California and 10th largest in the United States. Bus[edit] Greater Sacramento is served by extensive bus systems that link the region to the Reno and Bay Area metropolitan areas. The Sacramento Regional Transit District operates bus lines in Sacramento County and Yolobus serves Yolo County while providing connections to downtown Sacramento and northern Solano County in the Bay Area. El Dorado Transit links El Dorado County with downtown Sacramento and the city's western suburbs. Placer County Transit and Roseville Transit link Sacramento with Placer County with the latter providing direct connection from Roseville to Sacramento. The Yuba-Sutter Transit provides bus service in the Yuba-Sutter area and direct connection to downtown Sacramento on weekdays. Gold Country Stage and Tahoe Area Rapid Transit serve Nevada County and transfer service to Auburn to Sacramento is provided. Greyhound and Amtrak provide long-distance bus lines to Greater Sacramento.


Higher education[edit] The Sacramento State library Greater Sacramento's higher education system consists of the northernmost University of California campus, University of California, Davis, California State University Sacramento ("Sac State"), as well as several community colleges in the region. Community colleges: American River College Cosumnes River College Folsom Lake College Lake Tahoe Community College Sacramento City College Sierra College Woodland Community College Yuba College California State University: California State University, Sacramento University of California: UC Davis Private: Alliant International University The Art Institute of California – Sacramento Drexel University (Sacramento campus) International Academy of Design & Technology – Sacramento Lincoln Law School of Sacramento McGeorge School of Law (part of University of the Pacific) National University University of Northern California, Lorenzo Patiño School of Law University of Phoenix - Sacramento Valley Campus University of Sacramento University of the Pacific, Sacramento Campus William Jessup University

El Dorado, Placer, Yuba, Sutter and Douglas counties are predominantly Republican while Nevada County, despite a history of being held by Republican candidates, reflects the metropolitan area's competitiveness with pluralities between the two major parties and with a Democratic majority in the 2008 presidential election.


Sports teams[edit] Main article: Sports in Sacramento The Olympics Sign at Squaw Valley The only major professional sports team based in the Greater Sacramento area are the Sacramento Kings, who play at the Golden 1 Center in Downtown Sacramento. Sacramento residents also support the nearby Oakland Raiders for football, being an hour and a half drive away. Prior to 2009, the Sacramento Monarchs of the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) were also based at the Sleep Train Arena (then known as ARCO Arena), and were one of the most successful WNBA teams until the team folded.[12] Greater Sacramento is the only metropolitan area in the West Coast and in California to have ever hosted a Winter Olympic Games when Squaw Valley hosted the 1960 Winter Olympics, becoming the smallest city to ever host an Olympic Games, a title it still holds. Squaw Valley was the second Olympic games hosted in California and the only one not held in Los Angeles, where the 1932 and 1984 Summer Olympics were hosted and was the only Winter Olympics held west of the Mississippi River until the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
