One of California state’s oldest incorporated communities, Sacramento lies in the heart of the four-county metropolitan area. One of several museums in Old Sacramento, the California State Railroad Museum depicts the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad, one of the country’s earliest technological feats. Sacramento is known for its evolving contemporary culture, dubbed the most "hipster city" in California. Sacramento is the fastest-growing major city in California, owing to its status as a notable financial center on the West Coast and as a major educational hub, home of California State University, Sacramento and University of California, Davis.
