For a taste of the Old West, complete with dirt and cobblestone streets flanked with wide wooden sidewalks and "Bonanza"-style buildings, visit Old Sac. Tour the historical four blocks in a horse-drawn carriage or take a ride on a riverboat. Bustling with activity, this place offers tourist shops, museums and antique trains. On weekends you can usually hear Cajun, blues, or folk music in one of several saloons and restaurants.
Old Town Sacramento was fun! It is so neat how it is set up like the old west. It was even cooler to see the a huge river boat docked on the river. The view is great! I would not pass up Old Town Sacramento!
Evangeline's rocks for off gifty items.
The Delta King Riverboat can't be beat for atmosphere when it comes to overnight accomodations.
Fanny Ann's is great for a night out (loud music, good drinks, crazy cool ambiance!)
Good food at Fat City
Suspect Murder Mystery Dinner Theater is a total blast
Rent a bike and take a ride along the river with the kids!
We loved this place. We go eveytime we are in town. Not very expensive and great educational experience for the kids. There are actors roaming the dusty streets of the town that are willing to answer questions. If you have been to Philadelphia these actors are just as good.
Novelty shops, good food, horse carriage rides, stream boat, and the train ride. You can fill the entire day here.
Also for the older kids it's a great place to hear jazz, night clubing and an aray of differents rstaruants.
Don't forget to visit the train museum, have a beer on the Delta King, eat dinner at Fat City and shop for some novelties at Evangeline's! A lot of shop owners will sell you their merchandise for below the sticker price if they see you like it a lot (mostly in the family owned gift shops).
Hog's Head pub is not so great, you should probably avoid it (if it's still there).
My husband and I visited Old Sacramento on 6/18 and loved it. So many places to see and great restaurants. We ate at Chateau New Orleans and had the best Chicken Jambalaya. Before ordering the waiter brought out small dishes to sample. This was a great experience.
More than 20,000 pioneers from the Gold Rush era (1840s) "rest in peace" here, including John A. Sutter, Jr. (founder
of Sacramento), Edwin Bryant Crocker and Mark Hopkins (two of the "Big Four" of railroading). This well maintained Historic ...

legislature met. By the late 1970s, the building was declared seismically unsafe and had become an eyesore. The Legislature ...
