Sacramento, the capital of California, is located in Northern California, northeast of San Francisco.

Sutter’s Fort is one of Sacramento’s first buildings, established in 1839 by the city’s founder, the Swiss pioneer Johann Sutter. Old Sacramento has many buildings from the mid-nineteenth century, history museums, and novelty shops. You can ride an early-twentieth-century train from the Sacramento Southern Railroad alongside the beautiful Sacramento River. Outdoors, check out the California Delta, American River Bicycle Trail, American River Parkway, Sacramento Zoo, and Old City Cemetery. For shopping, head to the Downtown Plaza.

There are several major nightclubs in Sacramento, with your choice of electronica, hip-hop, rock and pop, techno, or funk.
