Sacramento is known as " The river city." The capital is located at the junction of two major rivers. The Sacramento river is the largest river in California and is economically important. It supplies plentiful water to most Central Valley farms. Activities such as fishing, rafting, and kayaking are great opportunities here also.
The 462 mile long Central Valley is positioned between Coastal Mountain ranges and Serra Nevada Mountains in the east.
The Cantral Valley is one of the seven most fertile valleys in the world. It is one of our biggest food resources. They produce over 360 products, including over 13 different fruits, vegetables, olives, and sweet rice.
