Many consider the Crocker Art Museum to be the shining star of Sacramento, but you can also enjoy time outside at the Tower Bridge and Folsom Lake. The adventure begins when you find the Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI) off Interstate 5. It can take up to eight hours to fly from Baltimore to Sacramento, but a wide selection of restaurants and museums awaiting you will be worth the travel time.
One way to see Sacramento is to follow the American River Bike Trail. It starts downtown and continues for more than 30 miles, connecting many parks and rivers along the way. You may also want to visit the State Capital Building to explore a museum that depicts some of California's interesting history. Spend at least one day touring the city's many museums, including the California State Military Museum and the California Automobile Museum. For a little fun, head to Raging Waters Water Park.
The Sacramento International Airport (SMF) has a public art collection that some museums should envy. After enjoying the art, exit the terminal and hail a taxi or hire a rental car. You can also take the Yolobus to various points in the city. Sacramento temperatures are warm during the day and can exceed 90 degrees in July, but expect dramatic dips in the evening when a sea breeze blows through town.
