      I am so glad you posted this hub. My cousins live in Elk Grove and I have been there numerous times. It is so quaint and with cute little shops, at least the last time I was there. I have been to the Strauss festival once and it was just so beautiful. I heard that the Elk Grove brewery had been closed which was a disappointment as we dined there many times and also heard live music. In any case I always enjoy traveling there. Voted Up!

      I live in northern California about 75 miles (?) from Elk Grove. It's flat and very busy. It is also a home of Apple so there are lots of techies there. Next time I am there I will have to check out The Boulevard Bistro. It sounds like my kind of place.
