Why We Love It
Midtown is lively by night and day! Some of our favorite neighborhood features include its easy river access, great nightlife, and eclectic mix of architecture styles. The neighborhood’s tapestry of Contemporary, Mid-Century, Victorian, and Craftsman buildings means there’s a unique home for nearly any taste. Plus, with its vibrant art, dining, and shopping scene, Midtown really has become its own destination within Sacramento.
