State capital panache in Sacramento

California's state capital is a characterful introduction to The Golden State. It's packed with homey American diners and quirky art galleries that come to life with each Second Saturday Walk – an organized monthly evening stroll through the thought-provoking exhibitions and displays. It's got folksy farmers' markets next to grand Capitol architecture. It's got the Wild West-esque remnants of Old Sacramento – the historic district of saloons and steam trains and adobe homes dating to the age of the great pioneers. Sacramento vacation rentals are your ticket to all that and more.

Things to do

Touring the old gateway to the west in Old Sacramento

Head down to the meanders of the Sacramento River to discover the designated historic district that is Old Sacramento. Once trodden by American pioneers and cattle farmers in the 1800s, this is where you'll find the chugging locomotives of the California State Railroad Museum, and the fascinating Gold Rush tales of the Sacramento History Museum. Meanwhile, the California State Capitol is the place to get the camera out, and the immersive reenactment-style exhibitions of Sutter's Fort rarely fail to transport you back to the frontiersman days of yesteryear.


Sacramento balances art and culture with the great outdoors

Sacramento is a bustling state capital, packed with historic sights and the grandiose Capitol buildings of California. Once you've seen them, you could enjoy the lively jazz joints and country bars that pepper the downtown area, or head out to the surrounding Californian wilderness for whitewater rafting, hiking, biking, and oodles of other outdoorsy things to do. Or, you could look for Sacramento vacation rentals in thriving Midtown, where the Second Saturdays Art Walk is one of the main activities, taking you through all the independent local galleries in just a single evening.


Summertime enjoyments in Sacramento

There's no question about it – the most popular time to go in search of Sacramento vacation rentals is during the summer. Between May and September each year, the town not only enjoys dry days and scorching sun, but it's also when most of the main events come through the state capital. The early summer has jazz festivals and some of the best art walks, while July is when the State Fair erupts in the nearby Cal Expo grounds in a medley of rodeo, rancher food stalls, and country and western tunes.

Natural features

At the confluence of 2 rivers in Sacramento

The defining geographical feature of Sacramento's cityscape is the confluence of the Sacramento and American rivers, which occurs just to the north of Old Sacramento district. Follow the first of those north, and you'll enter the greater Sacramento Valley, where the rugged tops of the Siskiyou Mountains command the horizon and the Sierra Nevada loom with their sun-scorched ridges to the east. The land there is largely given over to citrus fruit orchards and prune farms, occasionally interspersed with interesting geological features like the extinct volcanic cones of Sutter Buttes. Walking, wine tasting, and river rafting are all possible activities.
