California's capital - a city of politics and politicians

But this is probably not what you want to see in Sacramento. Don’t worry, there’s a lot to see and do here, to satisfy the pickiest traveler - but you have to skilfully plan your Sacramento travel guide. Begin with the Old Sacramento, with its historic charm, add Sutter’s Fort (the oldest restored fort in the United States), Folsom Lake (for fishing, biking, sailing, kayaking and jet-skiing) and the Crocker Art Museum (the oldest continuously operating museum in the West). Enjoy steam train rides with your family, or river rafting to escape the heat of the summer. In September, don’t miss the Sacramento Gold Rush Days with reenactments of life in the Old West.
