About Sacramento

If you’re into farm-to-fork fare and craft beers and ales, then Sacramento, a proper farming town turned state capital, is for you. The city was founded at Sutter’s Fort, which is now in the centre of town, and this is where you’ll find some of the best places to stay in Sacramento.

Sacramento also has a lively arts and cultural scene, so after visiting the State Capitol, you’ll probably want to hop around the Crocker Art Museum, the California Museum, the Historic State Park, Old Sacramento and the California State Railroad Museum. If you’re only able to stay for a short time then you’ll find the best places to stay will be in the Old Sacramento area, as many of the top sights are within a short stroll.
