Located 22 miles east of Sacramento in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, the stunning views in El Dorado Hills alone are enough to make any Californian want to move here. Because of its convenient location between the Lake Tahoe Basin and the Bay Area, many residents are giving a second look at El Dorado Hills apartments for rent.
One of the fastest-growing communities in the state, the population is more than 42,000, according to 2010 U.S. Census Bureau data. With less than three percent of the community living below the poverty level and nearly 30 percent of the population younger than 18, this community is popular with parents looking to raise a family.
Although Native Americans had been living in the region for centuries, the areas around El Dorado Hills were not settled by European immigrants until the late 1700s, when Gaspar de Portola's expedition moved north from Mexico. The area of El Dorado Hills began to populate while the California Gold Rush was in full swing during the mid-1800s. El Dorado remained an agricultural hub for potatoes and vegetables until the city of Sacramento began to sprawl during the 20th century. Today, El Dorado Hills remains one of the most prestigious communities in northern California.
One of the community's favorite places to gather is at the Folsom Lake State Recreation Area. Located at the base of the Sierra Nevadas, this scenic park offers hiking, biking, running, camping, horseback riding, boating, and fishing. With exotic wildlife like black-tailed deer, gray foxes, and beavers, this is the perfect spot for nature lovers and adventurers alike.
