From the Sutter District to the Handle, to Lavender Heights, Midtown provides an eclectic mix of boutiques, bars, galleries and restaurants among some of Sacramento’s most interesting (and in some cases not so interesting) architecture. Whether you live there, work there, visit there, or are passing through, you will almost certainly agree that Midtown’s unique charm and spirit are unrivaled in our City.
