About the location

This guide is going to give you everything you need to enjoy my amazing hometown city. Sacramento isn’t the first place that comes to mind when visiting California, I’d love to be the one to change that. We are the Capital of the State, but not many people actually know that. Most people think of us as a gas stop on the way to Lake Tahoe. To tell you the truth if you just showed up here one day with no guidance, you might not be able to figure out what to do. Sacramento is a locals city, not a tourist city. But that doesn’t mean we don’t pack a punch in the fun department, you just gotta know where to find it. Sacramento is a city full of art, local food, amazing coffee and some of the best free events around. My favorite thing about us is our support in each other. Being farm to fork, most restaurants support local farmers, have local beer on tap and offer coffee from a local roaster. Chain restaurants are hard to find and we like to keep it that way. In the summer, Midtown is where it’s at. You can just walk down the street and accidentally run into a huge block party, you had no idea was going on. Or an art show in the park, with crafts, games and music. Options are endless and this guide is going to help give you the tools to make your experience an unforgettable one.

Guide Highlights

Do you love craft beer?

Sacramento is plentiful with small breweries all over town. And most of them are walking distance within the downtown area.

Sacramento always supports local!

You will be hard pressed to find a chain restaurant here. Enjoy all local food, local coffee and even local art hung up in most places.
