I love Sacramento. My partner and I also have a place in San Francisco and it's fabulous being there, but there's something amazingly livable about Sacramento in general--plus the weather's great, there's actual sun in the morning, and you can enjoy an evening outdoors without layering. ;-)
As a San Francisco urbanite, you'll probably find that Sacramento's Downtown (http://www.ForSaleinDowntown.com) and Midtown (http://www.ForSaleinMidtown.com) neighborhoods offer the kind of activity and amenities you've become accustomed to. Downtown Sacramento is more urban (read: less residential, more office) and Midtown is more mixed use (think Hayes Valley or a more active Noe Valley). And flat. Don't forget flat.
Be prepared for warmer summers (you'll use air conditioning), but I definitely recommend that you check out Sacramento. And, if you're looking for something quieter or a little more suburban, there are plenty of neighborhoods to choose from with their own look and feel.
