The capital city of America's most economically significant state, Sacramento is an important stop for any politico.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Sonoma Valley and Honig Vineyard & Winery. Get outdoors at Jack London State Historic Park and River Rafting & Tubing. Venture out of the city with trips to Safari West (in Santa Rosa) and St. Helena (Beringer Vineyards & Charles Krug Winery). There's much more to do: hike along Stevens Trail, grab your bike and head to Lower American River, walk around William Land Park, and see the interesting displays at California State Railroad Museum.

To find traveler tips, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Sacramento trip itinerary website.

San Francisco to Sacramento is an approximately 2- hour car ride. You can also take a bus; or fly. When traveling from San Francisco in May, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Sacramento: temperatures range from 81°F by day to 54°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Thu) early enough to travel to Seattle.
