Explore the City of Trees
Sacramento vacations are fun year-round in this temperate climate. Take a free tour of the California State Capitol and learn why the Roman goddess Minerva appears on the state seal. Then stroll the rose and cactus gardens and investigate the many monuments throughout the grounds. More of an ourdoorsy type? The American River Bike Trail runs 32 miles all the way to Folsom and includes landmarks like Sutter’s Landing Park and the Guy West Bridge, a miniature Golden Gate Bridge that looks just as spectacular in the setting sun. Hotels in Sacramento near Midtown will be a great starting point for whatever you choose.
Farm-to-Fork for Life
Produce is king in this capital city, and they love to keep it local: You may catch a festival for bananas, avocados, or tomatoes, and local farmers and winemakers showcase their wares throughout the year. Rent a car in Sacramento and explore festivals throughout the area, including the largest and oldest almond festival, held in Capay Valley each February. In the summer, nearly 1 million people attend the state fair. Join their ranks and play a game of giant chess, then pick up some souvenirs from the indoor market.
