As a kid, I came here a lot to visit family. There is a Vietnamese area which is great!
Old Sacramento is the best part of Sacramento. It has History, Unique Shops and tons of different fun things to do.
This is the California Capital and HQ of a State that in many ways is its own Country and own worst enemy. I've been here several times for the State Fair, to the Capital, taking family to the California Railroad Museum/Old Sacramento, to see the River Cats, and on my way through towards the Mountains.
A few of the "must-sees' in Sacramento are the state capitol, Sutter's Fort, Old Sacramento, and the Train Museum. It is really hot in the summer, so that might not be the best time to go, but it is definitely worth a stop on a tour of California.
