All there is in Elk Grove is houses and places to shop. Traffic is starting to be horrendous, and the nightlife is so lame for almost being 200,000 people !!! There are a lot of parks here. That is one thing I like about it here. I prefer more stuff to do here since the population has grown 60,000 in ten years. Houses are getting thrown up overnight from block to block. Homes are built poorly here!! I have lived here for 30 years and started to not like it much about 7 years ago. I am going to be moving to a smaller town with even more to do than this boring town.
