I moved to Roseville from Redwood City in September of 2017. I’ve loved every moment since I got here. I have to keep reminding myself I’m not in the Bay Area. After work the other day, I went to Soul Yoga. The class started at 5:30 pm. I thought I was getting there late and that it would be full. I walked in about 5:10. I was the first one there. By the time the class started there were about ten of us – still a lot of room for more yogis. Since the main thoroughfares are six lanes wide, we don’t use the freeway much. People here complain about the traffic and the construction, which always reminds me that everything is relative. To me, there is no traffic. Even at the height of the commute, it’s an easy drive from here to there. There are a ton of restaurants – I haven’t heard of a lot of them. Ciao on East Roseville Parkway, Roseville just opened. It’s family owned and the food is amazing – fresh pasta! Thursdays their happy hours offer free appetizers along with a huge selection of wine. There’s also a small lounge where you can enjoy a glass of wine and relax. Outside is a large patio they’ll be opening up when the weather warms up again.
I’ve heard, “There’s nothing to do there” so many times. Now I just laugh. There is so much to do here it’s amazing. Lyon Local – Lyon Real Estate’s website – has an article every week with another event, restaurant or place to go. At the time I moved here, I had only been once before, so my list of things I want to do is really long. Things like this list of 18 Things to do in Sacramento. Obviously the housing is a big conversation for us transplants. The prices are incredible – still, after having been here about five months now, I’m still shocked. Today I saw a duplex for $330,000 – a duplex! The area is growing rapidly. Every week there are several articles about all the Bay Area folks cashing in on their houses and moving north.

I’ll be adding more information soon.
I hope it helps you in some small way. If you’d like to talk about your move from the Bay Area to Sacramento, please let me know. Best wishes, Vicki
