Friday Night Fun
In terms of local amenities, the neighborhood has a small shopping center with a major grocery store on the eastern side. Running north about two long blocks sits a major retail shopping center with multiple banks, a theater, multiple restaurants, and a medium-size medical center. Having a college campus nearby also means that the neighborhood has several bars, including cocktail lounges, barcades, and tap rooms.
What You'll See
For those who are considering a more permanent residence in Campus Commons, the townhomes in the area are a popular option. Campus Commons is not a transient area: most of the homeowners are very comfortable holding on and living there. Alternatively, a good number of condominiums are in the area, providing an alternative to single-family homes.
Where to Eat
Campus Commons itself doesn't have much in the way of restaurants per se. However, right across the main avenues bordering the area on the eastern side, the local shopping centers have multiple spots for dining. Everything from Japanese food to Greek cuisine is available. And, with the large grocery store in place, locals can easily create their own extensive cooking as well at home. One could just go down to the local pub for some comfort food and a drink.
Where to Live
Most visitors see the area by walking across the bridge from the CSU campus, noting the local sports bars and a few residential complexes. Then the area turns into the typical eastern Sacramento neighborhood, thick with trees and rolling roads, separated from the main thoroughfares on the outside of the neighborhood: Fair Oaks Boulevard, running east-west on one side, and Howe Avenue, running north-south on the other. Boxed in on the remaining side by the American River, Campus Commons is both a quick hop from the University while also being a quieter location isolated from the rest of the city.
The Perfect Sunday
Unlike the more urban areas of Sacramento, Campus Commons is still a bona-fide, idyllic neighborhood. This is not unique to the area: a number of Sacramento neighborhoods have been used as family neighborhood movie sets repeatedly. That said, Campus Commons enjoys a prime geographic location because it sits at the transit junction point to the rest of eastern Sacramento and the more crowded area to the west. That means it's a perfect spot for people who want to get around with public transit versus a car, be near a medium-sized city with lots of jobs but not feel stuck in cement land, all the while being a short distance from the mountains or ocean by car. In this respect, Campus Commons has multiple benefits for residents, both locally and regionally.
