Orangevale, A Gem Outside Of Sacramento

Living in Orangevale, CA has been one of the better experiences in my telecommuting experience. It all started when I rented a place for a tech assignment about a decade ago, and the place simply grew on me.

It's about 25 minutes from Sacramento. Getting to my assignment wasn't a problem, but while it's always good to have all of the features of a city at your fingertips, Orangevale itself had all I needed.

Restaurants and peaceful living are key. I prefer to be deep into my work and unwind in an effortless and relaxing kind of way, so any restaurants will do as long as the area itself is beautiful--and it's amazing. The neighborhoods are nice, the restaurants take their atmosphere seriously, and the only thing I can really complain about is the cost of living in general.

That's California right now, though. In comparison to other areas surrounding Sacramento, Orangevale is still a great investment.

The best areas in Orangevale, CA have to be Echo Point, then Kingdale just because of the sushi restaurant. I'm easy to please, it's true.
