Sacramento is a top 10 destination city

Sacramento is a top 10 destination city


Sacramento is a destination city? It seems so, according to U-Haul.

Sacramento made this year's cut – rising three spots from last year to be named the 10th U.S. destination city.

The rankings reflect the top 10 destinations of U-Haul one-way rentals for the previous year. There are several reasons for the growth.

The survey credits the area's "green living" initiatives, as well as affordable regional home prices compared to coastal cities.

Another reason, Sacramento's growing entertainment hub with the new downtown arena well on its way.

"We're really stoked," said new Sacramento resident Whitney Dufresne, who moved to an east Sacramento home on Thursday. "Living near a great park within walking distance to a lot of neat restaurants and things to do is exciting for sure."
