Fly from Detroit to Sacramento

A flight from Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) to Sacramento allows you to discover a bustling city that has evolved from a small settlement during California's Gold Rush. Home to the California State Capitol and Wells Fargo Pavilion, Sacramento is an epicenter for government operations and high culture in the Golden State. Situated near the intersection of Interstate 275 and I-94, Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport is best accessible by car. When you fly from Detroit to Sacramento, expect the flight to last about seven hours.


Situated in Downtown Sacramento, the California State Capitol Museum boasts an impressive collection of American paintings and wall murals. The Neoclassical facade of the capitol building is also an architectural masterpiece in its own right. Continue a sightseeing tour in Sacramento with a stroll on Capitol Mall, which leads to the Crocker Art Museum. Additionally, you can use this busy road to cross the Sacramento River and reach Raley Field, home of the River Cats minor league baseball team. If you prefer to watch NBA action instead, check out the Kings at Sleep Train Arena.

Hints and tips

After landing at Sacramento International Airport (SMF), get a rental car and drive southbound on Interstate 5 toward Downtown Sacramento. A Mediterranean climate keeps temperatures in Sacramento between the 40s and 80s throughout the year. Offering amusement park rides, technology exhibits and music concerts, the California State Fair is one of the most popular outdoor events in the city.
