Some people think, that one of those cities: Los Angeles or San Francisco, is the capitol of California State, but non of them is. This is … Sacramento. Not so big but very interesting city with a lot of things to see. If you can imagine, having just one day to visit Sacramento, what would be the most important amusement?
Capitol and history
While I was visiting Sacramento, Capitol was renovated so on the photographs you can see only the park, Supreme and Appeal Court and a State Library. Sacramento’s history is very inspiring. The city was one of the most known allocative spot during the gold rush in US. It was also an important stop on the Transcontinental Railway.
Museums and festivals
Crocker Art Museum or California Automobile Museum are one of the most popular places. In June you can visit Sacramento for the French Film Festival or in September for Jazz Festival. You can also take a bike or just walk through the Old Sacramento District.
In Old Sacramento District there are houses from 50s or 60s. There is a lot souvenirs shops or restaurants where you can get crabs or other seafoods. Old Sacramento is near the river and close to the yellow Tower Bridge. You can also visit a Railroad Museum just near the district.
Yummy California Snacks
The thing I love about California is.. orange juice. And dates. California always was an agricultural state. And it was way before Hollywood and the industry. I think that freshly squeezed orange juice is the best what could happen to me in CA! The same story is with dates, which are incredibly fresh and sweet. In Old Sacramento District you can find a fresh market with those goodies.
Did you know that the July in Sacramento is the most sunny month in the world? Well, it is. And there is about 106 F. It’s hot!
See you soon in New York and San Francisco! ⭐️
