Hi, all. We're considering relocating to Sacramento (leaning towards midtown or the East side) and need to find short term housing while we get the lay of the land. Corporate housing seems insanely expensive ($125.00 per day! wtf?); is there another way to rent a furnished 2 bedroom place that's not airbnb or craigslist? [more inside]

Young professional couple, 30 y/o, being relocated from NY to work in Roseville, CA. Currently work in Manhattan and live right outside the city. We're hoping to live somewhere that is within close distance to bars, restaurants, shops, etc. but are not looking to live in the suburbs. Preliminary research has shown us neighborhoods either very suburby or college towns. We still are hoping for the california feel so are a little weary about living in downtown sacramento but are open to any suggestions. We want to avoid living in an apartment building full of college kids. We would like to be west of sacramento so in closer distance to san francisco/napa/weekend trip options.
The lady and I are hanging out in Sac-town, next week with a little spare time to go out and about. What should we do? Bonus points for holiday-themed ideas.
