My 5 Years In Elk Grove, CA

I lived in Elk Grove for five years right after graduating from college. I initially only planned to stay there for a month while visiting a friend. The beautiful climate and regional amenities quickly enticed me to stay longer. After sending out my resume to multiple employers, I was able to find a job in the region easily. Living in Elk Grove has multiple advantages and disadvantages. Perhaps the most important advantage is the opportunity for easy access to two metropolitan areas. The city of San Francisco is only about an hour and a half away. Sacramento is a mere fifteen miles. Elk Grove is a lot smaller than either place so you have the advantage of living in a relaxed place with a small town vibe that makes it possible to get to know a lot of locals. Some of my favorite places to meet others in Elk Grove are the beautiful new public library that has been renovated and the Boulevard Bistro on Elk Grove Boulevard. The latter offers an enjoyable Sunday brunch. I am particularly fond of the corned beef and the polenta with mushrooms. The place is busy on weekdays as well. One of the few drawbacks of living here is that housing prices are a bit on the high side. Northern California has a pricey housing market in general and Elk Grove is no exception. Even renting a small apartment can take a larger chunk of your budget than you might anticipate. My own apartment was nice but the rent was very high. However, the area has a lovely climate, easy access to many parks and the city of Sacramento a short distance away so I think living here is definitely worth it.
