Even 150 years after the famous California "Gold Rush," visitors are still discovering gold in Sacramento. In the decades since fortune hunters flocked to the region in search of the glimmering metal, Sacramento, California, has emerged into a cosmopolitan state capital that still retains its unique Gold Rush history.
Today you can find gold here without pans or mining equipment. It's in the area's family-friendly attractions, museums, and parks and gardens. It's there for the taking at four-star restaurants and first-class hotels. It's in every seat in the house for Broadway musicals and local plays.
And best of all, you can afford it! Sacramento is one of the best visitor values in California with well-priced hotel rooms and lots to do for little or no cost like free tours of the California State Capitol building or sightseeing in historic Old Sacramento.
Make plans to visit today and, we promise, you'll have a great time. We look forward to seeing you in Sacramento for Left Coast Crime!
