Visitors from all over the world flock to California each year. Those in search of unique experiences outside of the major gateway cities are taking notice of what’s going in Sacramento. In Sacramento, they are finding an authentic California experience with endless opportunities and a food capital like none other. Let’s take a look at a few reasons why Sacramento is so appealing to the international visitor.
Farm to Fork – Sacramento has officially been named America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital. Farms from the Sacramento region supply the world’s best restaurants with fresh ingredients every day, but like listening to Jazz in New Orleans or zipping across the Autobahn in a Porsche, isn’t everything better at the source? Chefs and farmers in Sacramento certainly think so. Visitors can explore the culinary world from the ground up, literally, from farm experiences and food tours to cooking classes and fine Sacramento dining.
Outdoor Recreation – Sacramento is one of the best cities for outdoor recreation in the entire United States. Cyclists take advantage of our bicycle-friendly Midtown and the miles and miles of paved bike trail along the American River Parkway. Farther up the river there’s whitewater rafting, kayaking and other watersports. For a slightly less physically demanding experience, there are numerous hiking trails and some of the finest wetlands and wildlife refuges for birdwatching and nature exploration.
Location – Sacramento is in the perfect location for seeing all that Northern California has to offer without having to pack and unpack your suitcase every day. California’s capital city is a great home base for easy day trips to San Francisco, Napa, Lake Tahoe, the Gold Country and more.
Authenticity – This may come as a surprise, but there is no Disneyland in Sacramento…and we’re fine with that. What Sacramento lacks in huge amusement parks it makes up for in authentic California experiences. If your visitors want to feel like locals, meet real people, eat real food, drink real beer and see how real Californians live, Sacramento is the place for them. Welcoming neighborhood restaurants, pubs and shops encourage visitors to relax and immerse themselves in the authentic California lifestyle.
- The Wild West – The legends of the Wild West are alive and well in Sacramento. After the discovery of gold in 1848 in nearby Coloma, a mass migration west occurred in the United States, and Sacramento was in the center of it all. Today the streets of Old Sacramento and the gold trails of the surrounding foothills are filled with the ghosts, legends and tall tales of the Wild West. Tour a mine, take an underground tour, retrace the steps of the Pony Express and even try your hand at panning for gold.
