A city shaped by the California Gold Rush, Sacramento still buzzes with the ambition of its fortune-seeking founders. Sure, the picks and shovels have been traded for briefcases and button-ups, but the energy is everywhere—from the California State Capitol building to the throw-back thrills of Old Sacramento. And with Sacramento hotels in every price range, you can go as luxurious or laid-back as you like.

Many locals will tell you that Sacramento's best attractions are all outdoors. There's white-water rafting on the Sacramento and American rivers, bicycling along the American River Parkway, and fishing off the Old Sacramento docks. Book a Sacramento cheap hotel near Richards Boulevard and the I-5 for easy access to the two local rivers, and you'll also be just a jump away from Discovery Park—perfect for picnics and boating!
Further south, Old Sacramento is a must-see for visiting families. Its cobbled roads and wooden sidewalks bring the Old West back to the modern age, and vintage ice cream parlors are a cool treat during the hot Sacramento summers. With Sacramento cheap hotels throughout the downtown area, it's just a short five-minute drive into California's past.
