Fun things to do and see in sacramento

Sacramento is happy to welcome visitors once more to the Golden State’s capital as the world continues to emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic. Many local businesses are still choosing to ask that patrons wear masks and observe some social distancing guidelines, and it is recommended that you ask the businesses what their requirements are before you go to visit them. 

Like always, Sacramento’s temperate weather allows for plenty of outdoor activities, ranging from hiking and biking to wandering the streets enjoying the myriad murals painted throughout the city.
