Visit Sacramento.

Make the city of Sacramento a part of your California itinerary next time you travel. Take in a city known for its rich history, surrounded by some of the state’s most productive agricultural regions. This humble farm-to-fork capital offers a wide variety of attractions and hidden gems that will make your West Coast getaway one to remember.

After landing at Sacramento International Airport, explore the city’s charming downtown area with a visit to Capitol Park, the home to California’s state government since 1896. The capitol building houses a museum with state artifacts and a collection of artistic depictions of California, plus murals, governors’ portraits, and antiques. For more history, head over to the Sacramento History Museum. Located in the historic Old Sacramento Waterfront, the museum shares the stories of how the city was first established and grew from the gateway to the Gold Rush to the capital of California. Art enthusiasts will want to visit the Crocker Family Collection at the Crocker Art Museum, which has one of the largest collections of European drawings in the world.

Along the Sacramento River is the National Historic Landmark District, which pays tribute to the city’s eras of the past. With horse carriage rides, cobblestone streets, and museums, it’s a step back in time that the whole family can enjoy. Next, hop over to Midtown, an eclectic district known as the epicenter of the city’s art scene. Home to several galleries and opportunities to see local live music, Midtown is the place to be. From trendy bars to boutique retail shops, this neighborhood has modern culture to spare. And since Sacramento is known as the farm-to-fork capital, you know that dining in the city, no matter the neighborhood, will be nothing short of sensational. From Mexican to Vietnamese and everything in between, you’ll find an unforgettable plate of food. Stop by a farmers market and witness chefs selecting the produce for their dishes of the evening. For beer and wine lovers, find your fix in the dozens of wineries and microbreweries inside and immediately outside city limits.

Raise a toast to Sacramento. It’s an epicenter of West Coast art and history with other popular destinations such as Lake Tahoe and Yosemite just a short drive away. This city has it all.
