"Sacramento" Sacramento by cheap_tourist

Sacramento Travel Guide: 436 reviews and 1,026 photos

Sacramento is California's capital. I particularly enjoyed exploring Old Sacramento which has three interesting rides: River Otter Water Taxi, Sacramento Southern Railroad Train, and the Spirit of Sacramento--a paddlewheeler.

Its downtown has many attractions including the State Capitol and the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament. The State Capitol is open to the public. If you are lucky, you can even see your lawmakers in action. The park behind the capitol has a poignant memorial to Californians who made the ultimate sacrifice during the Vietnam War.

Other attractions of note include the Crocker Art Museum and Sutter's Fort.

    Great comments on Sacotomato! I had the same overall impression: pleasant surprise. The tours of the state capitol (every day) are well worth the time and free. Great restaurants are popping up like mushrooms and there's the world class Railroad museum.
