Place

In Sacramento there are numerous languages and things to do. Old Sacramento being my personal favorite, as well as downtown because of the awesome food places. Old Sac has some awesome places like Evangeline's costume stop, Candy heaven, and Ten 22 filled with food that is not only delicious but whos menu is based around local organic options. As for the rest of Sacramento, there are various festivities to occupy yourself in. They also have the State Fair once a year. Sacramento experiences a Mediterranean weather pattern, meaning the summers are hot and dry, whereas the winters are relatively cold.

Movement

We mostly just use cars. However we do have railroads that get goods from one place to another. Also boats take people to and from different places on the rivers. Sacramento is up to date on technology so we move our ideas through there.

Human Environment Interaction

We have huge redwood trees all over northern California. We also spend lots of time conforming our gardens to the changing climate. We have built damns too.
