Safety, education, cost of living and its distance from work are some of the practical considerations that renters mull before purchasing an apartment in the Sacramento
metro area. But sometimes, any run-of-the-mill community isn't going to cut it. Some renters want a town that pops with personality. As many renters of apartments in Fair Oaks, California, have found, Fair Oaks is that town.
Renters who own Fair Oaks apartments near the town center know of the quaint and unique Fair Oaks Village and the Plaza Park. The first thing that new Fair Oaks apartment owners will recognize is the large gatherings of brooding chickens, for which the region is known. Chickens roam all over the town center, especially in the two nearby parks. Residents with Fair Oaks apartments can watch them searching for crumbs, being chased by smiling children or just roosting on a bench or see-saw.
The chickens in the Fair Oaks Village Park have made the land their home, and won't leave, even when the crowds come in for the weekly concerts that take place there during the summer, the Fair Oaks Theater Festival and the Fair Oaks Spring Fest. The festival is a two-day event in May that features craft and food booths, games, a road race and a frog jumping competition.
Those with Fair Oaks apartments who are checking out the park on a leisurely afternoon can amble over to Sunflower, Carmelita's or the FO Deli for a cup of coffee, and then stroll to the old bridge on Bridge Street to get a view of the Sacramento River.
