California's capital - a city of politics and politicians

Yes, there is much politics that happens in Sacramento. However, this is probably not what you want to see while here. Never fear, for there’s a lot to see and do to satisfy the pickiest traveler. 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 the family, or river rafting to escape the heat of the summer. In September, don’t miss the Sacramento Gold Rush Days, where they showcase reenactments of life in the Old West.
