Sacramento California

Sacrament is the political center of California. The State Capitol and its lovely grounds dominate the city and much of the life here. Built next to the Sacramento River in a wide, flat plain, Sacramento could be mistaken for a Mid-western city. As a transportation hub, the 1849 Gold Rush put the city of Sacramento on the map.
Visitors to downtown will want to see the Capitol, noting the unusual collection of mature trees from each U.S. state. Nearby, the Crocker Gallery art museum is worth a stop, as well as Old Sacramento on the riverfront. There, the main attraction is a superb railroad museum. Amtrak trains connect the city of Sacramento with the Bay Area and Truckee (near Lake Tahoe).
