Visitors' Guide

The Sacramento Visitors' Guide is your source of the best things to see and do in Sacramento. The guide is published three times per year and features the best Sacramento attractions, activities and sights. See why we're so fond of saying California Begins Here.

Get the scoop on Downtown and Midtown restaurants, the best activities to share with family (including pets) and where to stay. Also find a quick roundup of 10 seasonal things to do. Each issue also features a local's perspective.

In this issue: We highlight Old Sacramento -- Sacramento's historic district with buildings dating to the Gold Rush era. Get the lowdown on all the best sites in the area, then head out for a visit. We also showcase family-friendly Sacramento activities, local golf courses, restaurants with love on the menu, 10 ways to capture the spirit of the city, and we shine a spotlight on some unique and handmade creations from locals.    

Past local perspectives have included Mayor Kevin Johnson, artist David Garibaldi and local farmer Suzanne Peabody-Ashworth to talk about how Sacramento is America's Farm-to-Fork Capital.
