Explore the City of Trees
The city’s temperate climate means you can enjoy trips to Sacramento year-round. Catch a glimpse of California’s government in action on a free tour of the State Capitol, and followed by a leisurely stroll amid the rose and cactus gardens. If you’re ready to succumb to the lure of California’s great outdoors, consider renting a bike and roaming along the American River Bike Trail. It runs past Sutter’s Landing Park and the Guy West Bridge, a miniature Golden Gate Bridge that looks just as spectacular in the setting sun. There’s no shortage of adventure to be found on your Sacramento vacation; no matter what season you visit during, you’ll be able to enjoy the vast beauty of the outdoors.
