As the seat of state government in California, Sacramento is a gathering place for activities, attractions, and ideas. Some of the state's best museums reside here; including the California State Capitol Museum and Crocker Art Museum; as do some of the West's most historic structures. Families delight in attractions like the Effie Yeaw Nature Center and Raging Waters, while adult travelers find fun in museums, golf and shopping.
Among the many vacation offerings are vineyards that stretch into the horizon, a paddle-boat-turned-hotel floating on the Sacramento River, and vintage locomotives that take passengers on dinner tours. Visitors can also see the Sacramento Kings play at Sleep Train Arena, or dine at one of the city's great restaurants. These and a variety of other options make Sacramento a wonderful place to visit.
