"Old Sacramento" Old Sacamento Tip by Tom_Fields
Old Sacamento, Sacramento: 27 reviews and 39 photos
This is the original Sacramento, dating back to the mid-19th century. Built mostly during the Gold Rush, it has been beautifully restored. It's full of restaurants, shops, and museums.
Old Sacramento State Historic Park includes a number of restored, historic buildings right near the waterfront. Its point of contact is below.
These photos were taken during the annual Gold Rush Days festival, held on Labor Day Weekend. It that time, the streets are covered with dust and normal traffic is blocked off. Actors in cowboy garb re-enact scenes from the old West. You feel that you're on the set of a Western as it's being filmed.
Address: 2nd Street between 1st Street and Capitol Mall
Directions: On the Sacramento River, off I-5. Take I-5 to the J street exit, and park in the garage under the freeway.
