If you think of Orlando as just that Mickey Mouse place, home to theme parks and tourists, then you don’t know Orlando. I lived there, and I can tell you that yes, there are theme parks and tourists, but that isn’t all there is to Orlando. But having the theme parks does add to your entertainment choices for sure. We lived north of downtown and rarely saw a tourist. World-class beaches are just 45 minutes away, Winter Park is a lovely little town surrounded by lakes. There’s so much to do in Orlando, you’ll never run out of options.

Sacramento, California’s capital, is located just a few hours from San Francisco and Lake Tahoe. According to U. S. News & World Report, drawn to the reasonable cost of living, abundant sunshine and ethnic diversity, young professionals and middle-class families are leading a population boom not seen since the Gold Rush. Economic development and a resurgent real estate market are providing exciting opportunities for locals and newcomers alike. Sacramento also beckons to foodies. Sitting in the heart of the Central Valley, the metro area is at the forefront of the farm-to-fork movement. Residents have access to an abundance of fresh, locally sourced foods from nearby farms, wineries and breweries. Sacramento experiences a Mediterranean climate, and the region experiences most of its precipitation in the winter months. Sacramentans have a hungry appetite for the outdoors, which is partially satisfied by more than 200 public parks. Meanwhile, recreational opportunities abound along the 32-mile American River Parkway, which runs from downtown to the historic Folsom suburb. With so many ways to be active, it’s no wonder Sacramento’s residents are among the fittest in the country.
