About

City Scout is an online magazine that shows you the best of what California has to offer.

We scour cities for the best food, art, design, music, and the like because we know that culture is shaped by the lesser-knowns as well as the most-talked-abouts.

Our aim isn’t to just tell you about the goings-on around town; it’s to tell you about who’s making them happen, and why, and to give you all the information you need to go out and experience them yourself.

We’re not critics.
We’re not reviewers.

We’re not another hyperbolic blog.

We’re locals who write about the things we like. And we see the importance in that. So whether you’re a tourist, a new neighbor, or a fellow Sacramentan, welcome. We look forward to seeing you around town.
