Reasons to Visit Sacramento

by Guest Author 17 April 2017 11:18

Northern California has many amazing places to visit. One of those places is Sacramento. They have many attractions, athletic teams, and wonderful natural sites to view. Here are five of the places you should try and visit on your trip.

Downtown Sac (shopping, railroad museum, and underground tunnels)

If you are looking for a part of Sacramento that you can walk around and soak up a lot of the culture, Downtown is the place to be! They have so many amazing shops for you to check out, including Evangeline’s Gift and Costume Mansion. They have a great selection year round.

A couple blocks from Evangeline’s in the California Railroad Museum and many old trains out on exhibit around the area for photo opportunities or just to admire.

They also have underground city tours. The underground tunnels came from Sacramento building their city up higher during the 1870s to keep the city from flooding. They also offer night tours for those who want a different type of experience underground.

Sacramento Kings Basketball and Sacramento Republic FC

During your stay in Sacramento, we suggest viewing a Sacramento Kings game or even a Sacramento Republic FC game. You will get a chance to see some of the great people in our town and experience some of the excitement in the area.

American River

Whether you want to bike on the trails or get out on the river, you will enjoy this area. There are great hiking and paved biking trails if you want to go up and down the river. They also have a great place for you to stop and picnic by yourself, with a friend, or a loved one.

If you plan on getting out on the river and you don’t have the equipment, don’t worry! There are rentals near the river. This includes places that will give you a guided tour of the river.

Great places to eat

Sacramento has a wide variety of restaurants for you to try. This includes places like Mikuni, they offer delicious sushi and fun drinks you will love to try. The servers are friendly, the meals are reasonably priced, and the atmosphere is fun.

If you are looking for fine dining, there is Biba. Many customers rave about how superb the food is. It has been one of the best restaurants in Sacramento for about twenty years. Come try it for yourself!

Family friendly parks, waterslides, and more!

There are plenty of family friendly parks and attractions to keep you and your children occupied and making great memories. This includes the Children’s Museum, zoo, and other amusement parks.

Driving around might not be what you want to do. Therefore, you can pick a place, like the zoo, and then experience all of the fun things in the area. For instance, the zoo has Funderland Park, Fairytale Town, and other great places to play around in with your family.

Whether you are coming for a day, month, or planning on moving to Sacramento, there are many things for you to experience. If you need help planning your amazing trip or just a day of fun, feel free to visit us at
