The following was posted on the website, Reddit, this weekend by a person who will soon move to the Sacramento area. The title is "Moving to Sacramento:"
"I wanted to ask about affordable places to live within a 30 minute commute to Roseville that aren't total dumps. Ideally I'd like a rural/suburban area. Thoughts?"
When another user asks why, the anti-Carmichael poster elaborates. We've posted the explanation below. Let us know what you think of it in the comments:
Carmichael is almost entirely unwalkable (they're working on it, but seemingly only for the "main street" part of Fair Oaks Blvd) Just about every store front in the area seems to become a motel for the homeless and/or extremely loud tweakers after dark. Break-ins (car, apartment and house) are incredibly frequent. I've been witness to more hit-and-run (and even hit-and-flee-the-vehicle) accidents there than any place I've ever lived or worked.
There's some nice stuff to do there once in a while, the farmer's market's ok. It's not the worst place I've ever lived, but in the Sacramento area it's the worst in which I've spent any length of time.
Does the commenter have a point, or do you disagree? Let us know below.
