Destination guide

Discover West Sacramento

First established by Patwin Indians and separated from Sacramento only by the Sacramento River, West Sacramento is a hip and happening little city with plenty of appeal for travelers. Whether visiting for the weekend or planning a longer stay, bringing the family, or enjoying some downtime with friends, West Sacramento vacation rentals offer a great base from which to explore the city's food and craft brewery scene, pop across the river to discover the delights of vibrant Old Sacramento, or set sail on a yacht for a narrated river cruise.

Things to do

Make family memories on a West Sacramento vacation

If you're traveling with kids and looking for a guaranteed way to keep them entertained on vacation, look no further than Sacramento Zoo. This popular spot, which has been wowing families since 1927, is home to more than 500 animals, including flamingos, giraffes, and chimpanzees. When you've met the area's wilder residents, more family fun awaits at nearby Fairytale Town and Funderland Amusement Park. And when it's time to cool down, head to Raging Waters Sacramento, a vast waterpark open May through September, for attractions such as a wave pool, an 800-foot lazy river, and more than 20 slippery slides.

Activities

Explore historic attractions near West Sacramento

A trip to Old Sacramento is likely to be one of the highlights of any stay in a West Sacramento vacation rental. You'll find this well-preserved 19th-century downtown, a National Historic Landmark, right on the other side of the river and easily accessible via Tower Bridge. From browsing the array of specialty stores to discovering the city's past at the California State Railroad Museum, activities abound in this district. Bikes are available to rent if you fancy cycling along the historic riverfront, although classic carriage tours and river train excursions are a lovely and unusual way to see the area.

Weather

Visit West Sacramento in spring or fall

Summer here heralds the arrival of the immensely popular California State Fair but also brings extreme temperatures in the 90s. Spring offers the more comfortable mid-70s, perfect for sightseeing and attending Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Be aware, though, that the fine weather and festival combo can mean stiffer competition for West Sacramento vacation rentals. Fall temperatures are lower again but still warm enough to enjoy watersports on the American and Sacramento Rivers or a round of golf at the historic William Land course. Winters in West Sacramento are not unbearably cold but do include a fair number of rainy days.
