Things to see
California State Capitol Museum
Travelers to Sacramento usually find their way to the state's Capitol building. The beautiful grounds and inspiring architecture of the Capitol are free to visit, as is the history-filled on-site museum. Watch the live action of the legislature when it's in session, from the third floor balcony.
The Crest Theatre
Escape to the late 1940s when dignitaries and celebrities attended this period-style theater. Reopened in 1986, the Crest Theatre now hosts independent film screenings, concerts, comedians and annual film festivals within its original 1949 interior.
Sacramento River Train
If the Old West intrigues you, then you'll love the River Train's 28-mile trip up through Fremont Trestle and back. For a really great experience, book your trip on one of their themed rides such as the Murder Mystery Dinner train, Great Train Robberies train, or the lively Wine-tasting or Beer-tasting trips.
The Delta King
Permanently docked in Old Sacramento, the Delta King is a white-washed paddlewheel steamboat filled with Old West personality. Enjoy a drink on the deck overlooking the Sacramento River, dine in the Pilothouse restaurant or see a show on the ship's Capital Stage.
Where to stay
There are several Sacramento hotels that offer good quality accommodations at different price points. Depending on your specific travel needs, consider staying at one of these fine Sacramento hotels.
If your vacation or business plans take you to the California State Capitol or the Sacramento Convention Center, the Citizen Hotel provides a warm ambience with its period-style decor and luxurious accommodations. Located in the center of Sacramento, you'll be within easy walking distance from all the downtown action, day or night.
Hyatt Regency Hotel
The Hyatt Regency hotel offers all the upscale amenities you'd expect in a premier hotel. Swim a few laps in the outdoor heated pool, or relax with a full-body massage at the spa. The luxurious Hyatt Regency also provides a 24-hour fitness center and a coffee bar, all near the California State Capitol.
Sacramento Guest Services
If you're planning on visiting Sacramento for an extended stay, Sacramento Guest Services provides comfortable one- and two-bedroom apartments. Business travelers will enjoy unwinding in spacious accommodations, while families will feel at home. Each apartment comes with a full kitchen, cable television, free Wi-Fi and an in-room washer and dryer.
Before booking your trip, check your calendar to see if it coincides with one of these exciting festivals.
Festival de la Familia at Cal Expo
This celebration represents more than 20 different Latin cultures. Children will love making a piñata while adults appreciate the variety in musical styles, dance and food.
Pacific Rim Street Fest
For Asian and Pacific Island cultures, visit this springtime festival held in Old Sacramento. Traditional dance and music, as well as plenty of amazing Asian food, will fill your senses.
Sacramento Jazz Jubilee
This three-day event is held on Memorial Day weekend every year in Old Sacramento and other downtown locations. If jazz is your passion, you're sure to enjoy the music and camaraderie felt with fellow jazz-lovers!
Eppie's Great Race
For fitness fans, Eppie's Great Race, also known as “The World's Oldest Triathlon,” is held every summer. One unique difference in this triathlon is the kayaking element instead of swimming as one of the three parts. This event is not only the largest one-day kayaking event in the country, it helps to raise important funds for the Sacramento County Therapeutic Recreation Services each year.
