You are looking for a part of Sacramento called â€œMidtownâ€. Many folks who live in Midtown do not have cars due to the fact they can walk everywhere to everything, shopping, entertainment, dining and night life.
You want to look for an area called the â€œgridâ€. Midtown is a fairly large area and the closer you get to the â€œgridâ€ the closer you are to everything. Rents may be a touch higher nearer the â€˜gridâ€™ as appose to 10-12 blocks away.
All the best and welcome to Sacramento!
