Santa Rosa, CA Movers

Moving to Santa Rosa

Since it was founded in the early 1800s, Santa Rosa is one of the only cities in the San Francisco area to consistently see growth year after year. The most recent estimates place the population at over 175,000, easily making it the largest city in Sonoma County. From the gorgeous California weather to the great job market, you’ll find it’s a great place to live.

One visit to the city makes it obvious why more people are always moving to Santa Rosa. Smooth Move USA is the area’s top moving company, completing more than 1,200 relocations every year. Each of our movers goes through a rigorous 160-hour training program to ensure they know all the best practices when caring for our customers.

One of the first things to do when you get to town should be a visit to Safari West, a widely recognized 400-acre African wildlife preserve where you can see giraffes, rhinos, cheetahs, and much more. Charlie Brown fans will love the Charles M. Schulz Museum, with seasonal exhibits featuring other popular characters like Snoopy and Woodstock. While lovers of the outdoors should head out to Spring Lake Regional Park, a 320-acre public park popular for camping, swimming, and a variety of beautiful multi-use trails.

As you’re searching for the best places to live, you’ll find that local neighborhoods in Santa Rosa are divided into four different quadrants based on their direction. In the northeast quadrant, you’ll find beautiful areas like the utopian-style colony of Fountaingrove. If you search around the Redwood Highway on the northwest side is West End. Golfers will love Fairway View Estates in the southeast. The southwest quadrant actually surrounds the annexed community of Roseland, CA.

With the large population, Santa Rosa is host to a handful of school districts, offering parents access to great schools for children of all ages within each quadrant. The top primary school is Austin Creek Elementary School, which is part of the Rincon Valley Union District. Mark West Charter is the top-rated middle school in the area, while Maria Carrillo High boasts the best high school program around town. Students who are interested in a two-year degree can look into attending Santa Rosa Junior College.

Ranked by Forbes among the top 100 best places for business and careers, Santa Rosa has a low unemployment rate of only 2.5%. As the Sonoma County seat, the city is home to nearly 5,000 government employees. Kaiser Permanente specialty healthcare locations have over 2,600 workers in the area. Other major companies around town include the local junior college and the St. Joseph Health System.
