7 Affordable Ways to Enjoy Summer in Sacramento

The summer is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy everything the sweltering weather has to offer. However, not everyone has the budget to splurge on an expensive excursion. Fortunately, living in Country Squire Estates, which is a tight-knit manufactured home community in Sacramento, means you’re near nature attractions and can enjoy local events without having to spend a fortune just to have fun. 

Whether you like the idea of a staycation, a fun night with friends, or a close-to-nature vacation, this is a list of exciting summer activities you can enjoy that come with owning a home that’s near Citrus Heights and the vibrant city of Roseville.  

 

1. Go on a hike

One of the best ways to enjoy Sacramento’s great weather and diverse landscape is to go hiking. Luckily, there are several hiking trails in and around the region, some of which are free while others require a small admission fee. Hiking is a great way to get some exercise while enjoying the outdoors, and you can even choose from dozens of trails that offer varying terrains, amenities and landscapes. 

Meanwhile, if you’re a newbie hiker, you may want to choose a hike under 5 miles with relatively flat terrain or at least something that requires minimal climbing.

One of the appeals of short hiking is that it’s cheap and easy. You only need a good pair of hiking boots, water and snacks, appropriate clothing, and sunscreen and you’re good to go.

 

2. Attend music concerts

If you’re looking for a way to enjoy the local culture and listen to some great music, Sacramento is the right place for you. Known for its exciting music scene and party-goers, the region regularly holds outdoor concerts, especially during the summer months.

You may want to check out the Aftershock Festival and Concerts in the Park series and see if these events are a great reason for you to invite your friends and family. While some outdoor music events require an admission fee, others are free. Some concerts also offer discounts if you purchase tickets in advance. 

 

3. Attend outdoor festivals

As a vibrant region and home to a melting pot of cultures, it is not surprising that Sacramento holds cultural festivals during the summer months, including the Banana Festival, Aftershock Festival, and California State Fair. (Note: Most cultural festivals in the area cost between $15 and $20, which makes them extremely affordable.)

Whether you’re into a cultural festival, a street party, or a family-friendly event, Sacramento’s rich culture and fun-loving residents will not disappoint you. 

 

4. Try tubing on the American River 

If you’re into recreational activities in water but find the usual water sports too much of an effort, why not try tubing, aka lazy floating, down the American River, which is a 30-mile long river in California that runs from the High Sierra to its confluence with the Sacramento River?

Tubing, unlike some water sports activities, is great for all ages, including kids and “non-sporty” individuals. For this reason, it is increasingly becoming a popular activity among family group vacationers. There are several riverside companies that offer inflatable tube rental and water sports activities like boating, fishing and kayaking. 

 

5. Go on a road trip

If you’d like to explore something new but don’t want long travels, a short road trip is a good option. Luckily, Sacramento is the perfect place to do this leisure activity since it’s only a short drive from vibrant cities like Roseville, Citrus Heights, Rancho Cordova, Galt, and Fair Oaks.

 

6. Check out the local museums

If you’re interested in art or history, there are plenty of museums in the area worth checking out, including  the California Museum and the California Automobile Museum

Local museums are either free or require a small admission fee, especially for visiting families with children, students, and seniors.(Note: You may want to visit the museums’ websites to see their schedule and special promos and discounts. 

 

7. Ride your bike or scooter

If you’re looking for a cheap way to explore  Sacramento, you can easily do so by riding a bike or renting a scooter if you want to cover more ground quicker. Just make sure that you wear a helmet to avoid fines. 

But if you’re into nature trips, check out Sacramento’s top bike and hiking trails, from those with rugged terrains to beginner-friendly paths. 

 

Conclusion

The summer is the perfect time to explore Sacramento, a region known for its exciting festivals and music events, water sports activities, breathtaking landscapes, and nature trips. 

Instead of seeing Sacramento as a summer getaway, why not make it your permanent home? Check out Country Squires Estates, which is a 55 & over mobile home community located near Citrus Heights and just off Highway I-80. You can also leave us a message if you want to know more about this quaint neighborhood. 

The Country Squire Mobile Home Park is a manufactured home community that is located near Citrus Heights, a city that is becoming a gastronomical hot spot. Living in Country Squire Mobile Home Park is an amazing experience, especially for a hardcore foodie. This manufactured home community in Sacramento, California is located near Citrus Heights, a city that is gradually emerging as a gastronomical hot spot. 

 

With an overwhelming number of food hubs, you might find it daunting to choose your next food trip, so we have decided to round up the top four Citrus Heights restaurants you should try. These food destinations are not just known for their scrumptious meal and hearty servings, but also for their reasonable prices. 

1. Texas Roadhouse

This town’s favorite serves all-American cuisine that leans more toward the Southwestern flavor. With their fall-off-the-bone ribs and juicy steaks that come with freshly made side dishes, they have become the go-to restaurant for anyone who needs to satiate his carnivorous cravings. 

 

Despite their hearty portions, the meals are reasonably priced, especially during their weekly special when steak is only $13.99.

 

Being the town’s favorite has its downside: The restaurant is often packed at dinner time, which makes it not the ideal place if you’re looking for something intimate. Nonetheless, even on a busy night, the wait isn’t that long, thanks to its friendly, attentive staff. 

 

If you’re into hearty, sinful meals and lively ambiance, the Texas Roadhouse should be your next food destination with its Texas-themed decor, impromptu singing, line dancers, and jukebox. 

 

Address: 6309 Sunrise Boulevard, Citrus Heights  Contact number: +1 916-726-7623

2. El Tapatio Mexican Restaurant

This family-owned authentic Mexican restaurant has been serving their patrons for more than 32 years with their made-from-scratch meals (literally no cans in their kitchen). While their menu has a long list of hearty, mouth-watering meals, they are most known for their carne asada, which is beef marinated and grilled, often served in thin strips either as a main course or a filling in burritos and tacos. 

 

Other signature dishes you may want to try: fajita and molcajete. But if you really want to splurge a little bit, we suggest that you visit them for a Sunday Brunch (9 am – 2 pm) and enjoy their buffet of chile verde, cheese enchiladas, beans, rice, horchata and mimosa, Mexican bread, and other pastries, chile colorado, taco bar, to name a few. 

 

Surprisingly, this well-loved Mexican food haven also caters to people with special diets with vegetarian-friendly and gluten-free meals. 

 

But as with any popular food destination, the waiting line is a bit long especially during their Sunday Brunch, so we suggest that you arrive early. 

 

Address: 5637 Sunrise Blvd, Citrus Heights

3. Felipe's Mexican Restaurant

Another popular Mexican food destination, Felipe’s is a family-owned business that has been serving its Citrus Heights patrons since 1983. Due to their success, the owners decided to open a second location in Folsom in February 2007.

 

For decades, the food restaurant has been well-loved by customers who want to taste authentic Mexican cuisine that is a bargain for the cost. They also have take-out and cater to parties, weddings, and conferences. 

 

Felipe’s is most famous for their combinaciones de la casa, which roughly translates to combinations of the house. They include refried beans, Spanish rice, special salsa, hot tortilla, homemade chips, and chiminga, which are beef chunks wrapped in an oversized flour tortilla deep-fried until golden brown and drizzled with sour cream, melted cheese, and guacamole. 

 

Even though the restaurant is tucked away in a shopping mall strip, it is often packed with people, and so the waiting might be a bit long unless you arrive early. 

 

Address: 959 Auburn Blvd, Citrus Heights

Contact: +1 916-722-5400

4. Sammy's Restaurant and Bar

Sammy’s is inside a casino building (Stone Creek Gambling Hall), making it a convenient food haven for gamblers. Nevertheless, their lamb ribs, duck tacos, Baba Ghanoosh with pita wedges, and New York-style pizzas are well-received even by non-gamblers who just want to satisfy their cravings. 

 

Compared to the previously mentioned restaurants, Sammy’s a little bit more pricey but still “reasonable,” especially their “small plates” which start at $3.  

 

Address: 6510 Antelope Rd, Citrus Heights

Contact: (Not Available)

Aside from the aforementioned food destinations, the Country Squire Mobile Home Park is also near Roseville’s malls, boutique shops, and theatres. But surprisingly, the mobile and manufactured home community has a small town “feel” as it is tucked away in a forested enclave of Arcade and Cripple Creeks.
