Why Sacramento

Murphy Austin is located at 555 Capitol Mall, just a short walk from the site of the new King’s arena, fine dining and topnotch museums, including the Crocker Art Museum and the California State Railroad Museum.

The sixth largest city in California, Sacramento is the state capital, the county seat, and the center of government, educational, and cultural activity in the region. The heartbeat of the largest agricultural-producing region in the nation, Sacramento is America’s Farm to Fork capital, home to fresh and exciting local cuisine and a twenty minute drive from UC Davis’s top ranked agricultural school and World Food Center.

A great place to work and play, Sacramento is situated at the confluence of the Sacramento River and the American River, where the waters sports abound and stunning sunsets frame the iconic Tower Bridge at the entrance of Old Sacramento, a National Historic Landmark District and State Historic Park that celebrates California’s Gold Rush beginnings.

Downtown Sacramento

Minutes away from the Sacramento International Airport, the Port of Sacramento, the Capital Corridor railroad and Sacramento Regional Transit light rail, Sacramento is an easy connection point for business and leisure travel.
