Gentrified, Over-Priced, and Not Even Worth It for a SacTown Native

The only way you're going to be able to afford and like living in Sacramento is if you have a car, live in the Downtown, Rancho, or Folsom cusp areas. Oh and make sure you're pulling in at least $30 an hour at your job. The only people who feel Sacramento is affordable to live in are those who previously live in metro areas like NYC or LA. SacTown is very boring and God forbid you become homeless after your area is gentrified - you won't be able to find any help whether you are a teen, young adult, or adult (doesn't matter if you have kids or not). The public transit around here is awful and way too expensive for the "services" provided (crappy bus schedules, light rail breaks down every few hours, tickets and passes are expensive for no real reason). The education system here is garbage unless you can get your kid into one of the premiere "public" or charter schools, or you can afford private education and institutions. I recommend this place for families simply because families usually have more than one income entering the households wallet. You're going to need that. All of it!!! Amenities are fun if you know where to look and how to get to them, cost of living is ridiculously high for such a lousy town and valley area, the high- and freeways are constantly prone to traffic jams like it's LA, employment is meh, housing (to rent) is ridiculously high for broken down, roach-infested apartments built in the 70s-90s. You're going to be paying $800-$900 for a studio apt built in the 70s, and even higher for something more recent. Nothing in this city is worth the price. Sacramento needs to focus on fixing the cost of living and homeless population before it builds for idiotic things no one asked for like an arena. Beyonce, U2, and the rest are not going to perform here. If they were they would have done so at the Arco Arena (which the new one is in competition with) YEARS ago!!!
