Miserably Fun City?
This year Sacramento has been ranked by both Forbes as the fifth most miserable city in the U.S. and by Bloomberg Businessweek as America’s sixth Most Fun and Affordable city… quite a contrast? In the past, I could hardly care about what one of these rankings had to say because they did not change my opinion of how I viewed the city, but they do influence others opinion whom have never been here before.
Well, for what it’s worth, Bloomberg Businessweek has ranked Sacramento sixth out of twenty-five as a great place to find good times with low prices. You can check out the full list here.
