Find your peace in Orangevale. Living here among the gently rolling foothills, you’ll find glipses of the Sierra Nevadas. A more affordable area than the surrounding communities, Orangevale still has a lot to offer, from an abundance of recreational opportunities on the western shore of Lake Natoma to the renowned Thursday night farmer’s market.
Once the home to numerous orange and olive groves, some properties are still zoned for horses and orchards. For nightlife, there’s a fun bar scene along Greenback Lane, as well as local and national chain options for food and coffee. Those who like to eat out will be particularly pleased with Orangevale’s local restaurants. A Safeway and WalMart are in the neighborhood for groceries.
The main attraction is the outdoor opportunities by Lake Natoma, including canoeing, fishing, camping, walking and biking trails, and more. Nature lovers will be impressed to spot deer, coyotes, and even eagles along the water and among the lush pine trees. It’s a tranquil lake retreat that could be in your very own back yard.
Orangevale boasts highly-rated schools and a low crime rate and is a great fit for growing families looking to cut down costs by moving away from the city.
