Sacramento, the capital city of California, lies where the Sacramento River and American River merge. The district of Old Sacramento harkens back to the city's Gold Rush era, with its wooden sidewalks and wagon rides. It is a 28 acre historic riverfront with more than 125 boutique shops, restaurants and attractions. The State Capitol and the accompanying Capitol Park is alive with California's colourful political past and historic achievements. Sutter's Fort is the remaining structure from the days before the Gold Rush. Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park is the original site where gold was discovered and can still be found.
Your visit to Sacramento can begin with food because you will be in America's Farm-to-Fork Capital. No other major city in America is more centrally located amid such a diverse range of high-quality farms, ranches and vineyards. Award winning chefs and restaurants provide the perfect complement. This region is also home to one of California's oldest wine-producing areas, with over 200 wineries in the region offering wine tastings and access to the wine making process.
Sacramento is also ideal for exploring its nearby surroundings from the ski and recreation areas of Lake Tahoe, the granite domes of Yosemite and the golden gates of San Francisco from one to a few hours drive away.
With more than 230 days of annual sunshine, it is the perfect place to explore the outdoors and enjoy the California sun.
