We stopped in Sacramento on our way to Tahoe. The atmosphere in the old town is worth the stop if you have never seen it.

We visit Old Sacramento on occasion and always enjoy ourselves. Even with the construction going on our visit was enjoyable. Visit the different eclectic shops and don’t take it too seriously. Train museum is also worth a look

Nice looking buildings, although you expect a more preserved sidewalks and areas outside the buildings. Lots of tourist traps and souvenir shops but some gems in between. Don't miss the candy stores, best salt water tuffy I tasted in a long time.

This is definitely the best part of Sacramento! A perfect place to spend a day(s) or hours learning about history, shopping, drinking good coffee, or just wandering around chatting with friends. I was amazed, and definitely recommend a visit.
