Get the door, it's the liquor store
While it sounds more like a sleepy saloon in the likes of Montana or Wyoming, Elk Grove is a busy... suburb in southern Sacramento. Its name suggests antler decor and bearskin rugs, but the vibes here are different than that. How exactly did the quiet city earn its Ron Swanson-esque name? While historians debate the exact inspiration, the name undoubtedly is credited to the Hall family, who moved to the area during the Gold Rush. The family had likely lived in a midwestern town that shared the name, and they constructed the Elk Grove Hotel in their newfound home. Whatever the story, modern Elk Grove continues to welcome new residents, even if they’re seeking job opportunities and affordable housing in lieu of golden nuggets.
