Sacramento has moved on from its past as a pioneer town to a modern metropolis that celebrates its history but prefers its more up-to-date image. This new spruced up reality is in evidence with its City of Trees nickname but, more importantly, is rooted in the number of green spaces scattered about the city.
Sacramento is the capital of California and is among the ten fastest-growing areas in the U.S. Although its population is just less than 500,000 it is part of a greater region that encompasses a population of more than two million, though even that makes it merely the fourth largest in the state after Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego.
Within Old Sacramento everything is housed within vintage 19th-century buildings. Little more than a stone throw’s away, the American River cuts through the heart of the city and offers several outdoor leisure activities such as river rafting and fishing.
Regardless of whether it is the great outdoors or the history of the Gold Rush that draws you here, those arriving on cheap flights to Sacramento will not be disappointed.
