Sacramento Holidays ​

If you opt for Sacramento holidays in the heart of the Golden State, then you're guaranteed to strike it lucky. From its beginnings as the epicentre of the California Gold Rush to its status today as a cultural, political and culinary powerhouse, Sacramento has always been a colourful, lively and fun loving city. Add to that the bonus of a meandering river system, attractive tree-lined streets and both Lake Tahoe and Yosemite within driving distance, and you've got a great base for a stunning vacation.

Wandering along the wooden boardwalks of Old Sacramento, past its colonnaded Victorian buildings, its stores, saloons and horse-drawn carriages, it's easy to imagine yourself back in the days of panning for gold. Drop by at the Huntingdon, Hopkins & Co. store to view the picks, shovels and gold pans that were prospectors' stock-in-trade. Or try panning for gold yourself at the annual August Gold Rush Days celebration.

Just next door though is the city's modern centre, dominated by the fabulous State Capitol building (think smaller-scale Whitehouse). There's some great shopping on offer, and  Midtown has a vibrant restaurant, bar, arts and night-life scene, plus 'open-house' for local galleries once a month, when the sidewalks are buzzing. And if it's performing arts you're after, there's a whole list of venues to choose from, showing everything from Broadway musicals to ballet.

Today, all the history of Sacramento is combined with a culinary wonderland that attracts visitors from all over the world to California’s fertile valley in search of the ultimate food travel experience. It’s for this reason that Sacramento is officially known as ‘America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital’. Add in over 20 museums, beautiful tree-lined neighbourhoods, bicycle friendly streets and a convenient location for exploring the delights of Northern California and it’s easy to see why Sacramento is a must-stop on any California itinerary.

Sutter's Fort

Sutter's Fort Sacramento

This is where it all began for Sacramento, when Swiss immigrant John Sutter established an outpost here back in 1839. Experience what life was like for pioneers arriving in the Old West at the dawn of the Gold Rush by touring the fort, which has been restored  to its 1840s state. Then drop into the California State Indian Museum next door, to find out about the indigenous people already living here.

Trains & Automobiles

Must-sees on Sacramento holidays are the California Automobile Museum, which has over 150 cars from bygone years, including Model-Ts, Studebakers and Pontiacs; also the California State Railroad Museum, where lovingly  restored  antique locomotives and  carriages tell the story of the railroad in the West. An added bonus is steam train rides along the Sacramento River.

California State Capitol

Tour the building where Arnold Schwarzenegger formerly pulled the strings as Governor of California. A hugely impressive structure in the style of Washington DC's Capitol Hill, it's a chance to see the building's 120-foot gilded rotunda, monumental chandeliers, sweeping staircases and 1890s legislative chambers up close - plus to stroll in 40 acres of manicured grounds.

American River Parkway

Walk, bike or ride horseback along 32 miles of trails on the north bank of the beautiful American River between Discovery Park in Old Sacramento and Folsom Lake. Look out for deer, native birds, turtles and other wildlife along the way, and stop off for a picnic, a dip in the river, or simply to soak up the scenery.

Crocker Art Museum

Established in 1885, making it one of the oldest art museums in the States, the Crocker has recently undergone a $100 million extension and renovation.Don't miss the fabulous collection of Californian art dating from the Gold Rush to the present day - or the exquisite international ceramics.
