Located just 13 miles from downtown Sacramento, Carmichael is unincorporated and lies along the north side of the American River in the verdant rolling hills (some 1 acre lots zoned for horses). It has grown into a sprawling suburban bedroom community. Many treasures are to be found in Carmichael, such as the rare hybrids of camellias, dogwood, and other flora in the Jensen Botanical Gardens, or the exhibits of flora and fauna at the 77 acre Effie Yeaw Nature Center and the Chautaqua Playhouse for full season theatrical works. The community’s riches include an 18-hole golf course that’s one of the best public courses anywhere, Ancil Hoffman Park’s 85-acre nature study area and equestrian trails. Home styles are mostly ranch style, mid-century modern and contemporary homes styles to beautiful residences overlooking the American River.
