River City

The capital city of America's most economically significant state, Sacramento is an important stop for any politico.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Crocker Art Museum and Frog's Leap Winery. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Pride Mountain Vineyards and Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament. Change things up with these side-trips from Sacramento: Napa (Sequoia Grove Winery, O'Brien Estate Winery, &more) and VGS Chateau Potelle (in St. Helena). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at California Automobile Museum, explore the landscape on two wheels at American River Bicycle Trail, admire the striking features of Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park, and do a tasting at The Undergound Tasting Room.

For more things to do, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, read Sacramento trip itinerary planner.
