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.

The heyday of the big cinema returns Editors' Note

The Crest Theatre is an old movie house that still shows selected independent films, but the theater’s biggest popularity comes from the wide array of acts also performed there. Concerts to jazz festivals, comedy to rock, this is one of Sacramento’s favorite performance places.

Completely restored back in 1995, Crest Theatre was opened originally way back in 1912 - the current venue being from 1946. Now the glory days of the big screen have returned, and visitors can enjoy again one of the city’s most venerated showplaces. Call or visit the website to see what’s on.
