Sacramento County

Sacramento County is located in the North central portion of the state, east of the Bay Area. The county seat is Sacramento, which is also the state capital. Sacramento County is in the Central Valley, and its geography is characterized by the Sacramento and American Rivers, which flow through the county, irrigate millions of acres of agriculture, and form its natural borders. After the discovery of gold in the American river, the area became a hub for the California Gold Rush in the mid-19th century. Sacramento County was eventually established in 1850 and has since played a significant role in the state's political and economic development.

Some cultural landmarks in Sacramento County include the California State Capitol, Old Sacramento State Historic Park, and the Crocker Art Museum. The county is also home to a diverse array of suburb cities, such as Elk Grove, Citrus Heights, and Rancho Cordova. Cannabis growing and sales has faced some resistance from county officials and is still subject to widespread zoning restrictions, but the industry has still managed a steady growth rate.
