Sacramento

River City

The capital city of America's most economically significant state, Sacramento is an important stop for any politico.

There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at California State Railroad Museum, stop by The Chefs' Olive Mix, admire the masterpieces at Crocker Art Museum, and admire the natural beauty at California State Capitol Museum.

Alexandria

— 6 nights
Just a few metro stops away from the bustle of Washington D.C., Alexandria provides a respite from the fast-paced capital.
Explore Alexandria's surroundings by going to Bruce Snake Gabrielson's Surf Art Gallery and Museum (in Chesapeake Beach), Shenandoah Valley Cultural Heritage Museum at The Edinburg Mill (in Edinburg) and Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly). Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Old Town, explore the landscape on two wheels at Mount Vernon Trail, take in the spiritual surroundings of Alexandria's Christ Church, and view the masterpieces at Torpedo Factory Art Center.
