Midtown Sacramento (commonly known as Midtown) is a historical district and neighborhood just east of Downtown Sacramento. Officially, Midtown's borders are R Street on the South, J Street on the North, 16th Street on the West and 30th Street on the East. However, the streets in Sacramento's original "grid" that are east of 16th Street cover the area commonly called "Midtown". This more general definition covers an area bounded by W Street on the South, the Southern Pacific rail lines on the North, 16th Street on the West and 29th Street on the East.
It is a largely residential community with tree-lined streets and old Victorians. It is also the center of Sacramento's art, music, and cultural scene. Boutiques, bars, clubs, upscale, and casual dining abound. Midtown has the only winery located in the greater Sacramento urban area. Midtown hosts an art walk on the second Saturday of each month which attracts thousands of metropolitan residents. A large historic Asian community resides from S Street south to Broadway.
The Midtown community is diverse in terms of race and income brackets. Increasing in-fill developments consisting largely of upscale lofts have priced out some residents. Historic sites such as Sutter's Fort, the first European settlement in Sacramento, are located in Midtown. Midtown is known for being pedestrian-friendly and bike-friendly with continuous marked bike-lanes throughout the neighborhood and a bike path connecting to the American River Parkway which extends to Folsom. Public transit consists of light-rail lines running down R Street connecting the neighborhood to the metropolitan area and bus lines serving the central city area.
Lavender Heights, Sacramento's gay and lesbian district, is centrally located on K Street and 20th Street.
Many legislators (Dean Florez and Christine Kehoe among them) choose to live in various spots in Midtown when the legislature is in session.
