5 Homes with Awesome Water Views in the Sacramento Area

One of the best things about living in Sacramento is its scenic beauty, especially its rivers, lakes, streams and other waterways. There’s no better way to embrace the area’s picturesque setting than from your very own home. Whether a view of the Sacramento River or Folsom Lake, the greater Sacramento area has plenty of homes with impressive water views. Following are our top picks.
