A couple of hours drive from San Francisco. This little oasis of history surrounded by modern day hussle bussle. Car park adjacent $10 all day. We stayed all day! Took the train ride, visited the museums. Plenty of shops and restaurants to suit any purse. Went into the information centre and got talked into taking the tour. Glad we did. Very informative with the addition of playing a part of a 49'er.

I went with a friend of mine and was pleasantly surprised. Old Town Sacramento is much larger than I expected. It has great histor , great places to eat and a lot of candy shops! There’s a A very cool Native American store that I really liked, unfortunately I cant remember the name. I suggest you allow yourself a few hours to see this place. My only issue was I wished that had a better variety of stores but it’s still a pretty cool place to visit .

If you are visiting Sacramento its a fun place to walk around, many historic Buildings and a rail yard with old Locomotives and a lovely paddle steamer. The only disappointment were the gift shops which by and large were full of cheap souvenirs but there are a few holding nice goods. Fun Place to walk around.

Classic tourist trap. Pretty sure round table pizza is not one of the original restaurants serving the gold rush. Yes, the buildings are old, and not as well cared for, which is the only thing authentic about it. Beyond that, it is just a bunch of merchants hocking 21st notions and widgets or food at prices above average for the city.

Absolutely loved coming back to visit as an adult with my own family, who had never been. Parking was pretty painless considering it was Pride weekend.
