Visitors to Sacramento enjoy sightseeing at the historic and cultural landmarks such as the Old Sacramento Waterfront and the Crocker Art Museum, eating the farm-to-fork food, exploring the outdoors and any number of other activities while they're in California's capital.

Locals might not spend a lot of time thinking about visitors, but their effect on the economy has a big impact on the quality of life of Sacramento's residents. As part of National Travel & Tourism Week and California Tourism Month, Visit California released its report on travel impacts throughout California destinations, showing that Sacramento has a $3.2 billion tourism economy, which helps create jobs, fund the local tax base and make Sacramento an even better place to live.
