Sacramento, California Attractions

Unusual landmarks, museums, roadside attractions, and hidden wonders in Sacramento and the surrounding area. The state capital sits at the confluence of the American and the Sacramento Rivers, and also at a crossroads of Gold Rush history and modern political nation stirring. Public art shares the cityscape with cheesy relics from roadside days of yore. The Old Sacramento Historic District is haunted, of course. Plenty to see. If the levees hold!
