The quiet neighborhoods of Elmhurst and the Med Center are two more great examples of the hidden gems that Sacramento has to offer. Both of these neighborhoods are infrequently traveled due to their lack of thoroughfare streets and even less talked about, however they are excellent residential neighborhoods to live in - they are quiet, friendly areas containing well maintained homes with a warm sense of community. The proximity to area freeways make the Med Center and Elmhurst a great place to live for a commuter. UC Davis Medical Center, a world renowned medical facility boasting some of the top medical professionals in the world is within walking distance from most of the neighborhood, making this the perfect haven for a student or medical professional who studies or works at the Med Center.
Elmhurst boasts one of the widest and most beautiful medians in Sacramento, along the middle of T Street, which forms the center of this neighborhood. Elmhurst has mostly larger single family homes, while homes in the Med Center are smaller and a bit more modest. Both neighborhoods sport the beautiful streets lined with mature trees that make Sacramento core neighborhoods so distinctive. Most homes were built in the 1930’s and 1940’s and as you move further East they gradually move into 1950’s vintage.
