Sacramento is a top 10 destination city

Sacramento is a top 10 destination city

Sacramento is a destination city? It seems so, according to U-Haul.

Sacramento made this year's cut – rising three spots from last year to be named the 10th U.S. destination city.

The rankings reflect the top 10 destinations of U-Haul one-way rentals for the previous year. There are several reasons for the growth.

The survey credits the area's "green living" initiatives, as well as affordable regional home prices compared to coastal cities.

Another reason, Sacramento's growing entertainment hub with the new downtown arena well on its way.

"We're really stoked," said new Sacramento resident Whitney Dufresne, who moved to an east Sacramento home on Thursday. "Living near a great park within walking distance to a lot of neat restaurants and things to do is exciting for sure."

Sacramento Fire Department uses new live streaming app to keep public informed

Sacramento Fire Department uses new live streaming app to keep public informed

The Sacramento Fire Department has been serving the community since 1872, making it the oldest paid fire department west of the Mississippi, according to the department's spokesman Roberto Padilla. Now, the department is among the first few fire departments in California to utilize a new app to further inform the public in the case of an emergency.

'Periscope' is a new social media app that allows users to broadcast live pictures from their cell phone camera to a potentially global audience. The app runs through Twitter, and users can connect with an audience in real time through their cellphones. It operates similarly to a live chat room with a video stream.

According to Periscope's website, the creators wanted to "build the closest thing to teleportation."

A water-saving wash and style haircut that lasts a week?

SACRAMENTO - With the drought only getting worse in California, Gov. asked Californians to reduce usage by 20 percent.

One Sacramento hair salon has pitched in by encouraging infrequent hair washing.

Studies show you can use two and a half to four gallons of water per minute when you shower. Hair stylists said keeping showers short, or maybe even eliminating a couple a week, can result in some nice water conservation.

My Blow Dry Studio offers a wash and style that stylists said can last up to a week. The owner of the east Sacramento salon, Sandra Bailey, said that in turn, clients can go days between washing.

Bailey said she's passionate about conserving water and helping others do the same.

"You can have a style and not waste all that water," she said. "We're doing our part as far as water conservation goes. Every little bit helps."
