River City

The capital city of America's most economically significant state, Sacramento is an important stop for any politico. Though a sprawling city, it has a much more laid-back feel than many of California's urban areas. In addition to important government buildings, Sacramento is home to a wide range of attractions including museums, parks, and galleries. The historic district of Old Sacramento, located on the waterfront, is a favorite among visitors, boasting an array of charming stores and restaurants. The city is also known as America's farm-to-fork capital, since nearly 70 percent of local land is dedicated to agriculture. Restaurants around the region pride themselves on serving locally grown foods. To arrange what you want to do in Sacramento, use our United States travel itinerary maker.
