It is contiguous with Sacramento, but is separated by the Sacramento River which is also the County line.  West Sacramento was named by the United States Conference of Mayors as the Most Livable City in America in 2014 in the category of cities with fewer than 100,000 residents. West Sacramento is home to the River Cats and Raley Field.
