As those who rent apartments in Hood, California, have realized, you don't need to live in a huge town to get the excitement and diversity that the Sacramento metro area has to offer. Though downtown Hood, itself, is a modest community compared to California's giant cities, it lies just 15 miles north of the bustling city life of Sacramento
, and only a stone's throw from the relaxation and nature of both Stone Lake and North Stone Lake.
Stone Lake, a dream for anglers and nature lovers, is encompassed inside Stone Lake State Park, in Sacramento County. The park was established as an effort to preserve the rare and fragile ecosystems of Stone Lake and North Stone Lake, as well as the surrounding Central Valley grasslands.
Perhaps the greatest appeal to outdoors-men with apartments in Hood is that a number of rare and beautiful waterfowl and migratory birds use the area as wintering grounds, according to the California State Parks website. Residents with Hood apartments can also head to Stone Lake State Park to appreciate the area's indigenous species, like the Swainsons hawk, the giant garter snake and the longhorn elderberry beetle. In addition to the gorgeous flora, fauna and views of the lakes, the property also contains several Native American occupancy sites.
After spending the week in the urban center of Sacramento, those with Hood apartments can look to the state park for a calming weekend and a slower pace of life.
