Cross Country Moving Company’s Guide to Sacramento

There is a legend that says that when Gabriel Moraga, a Spanish explorer, discovered the area that is now Sacramento back in 1808, he found it so beautiful that he exclaimed in awe: “It is like the Blessed Sacrament”, and thus the City of Trees got its name.

Today, Sacramento is the capital city of the state of California and the Sacramento County. It lies on the Sacramento and American Rivers and is home to more than two million people (along with the whole metropolitan area).
