Welcome to Sacramento

Sacramento is the California capitol and one of the state’s most historic cities. Located at the confluence of the American and Sacramento Rivers, this is the place where a gold discovery at Sutter’s Mill on the American River sparked the 1849 California Gold Rush. Today visitors can explore Old Sacramento where Gold Rush era buildings, wooden sidewalks, and many museums bring history back to life. Food tours and brew bike rides through the downtown bar scene are very popular. Great weather makes it easy to enjoy outdoor adventures like cruising along the historic riverfront by yacht, whitewater rafting on the South Fork American River, and picnicking in the wine country of nearby Amador County.
