Sacramento - find a bed and breakfast, country inn or small hotel

Sacramento, the state capital of California, is located midway between the San Francisco Bay area and the ski resorts and gambling casinos of Lake Tahoe, Perched at the Sierra foothills, this city is flanked by the American River, the Sacramento River, and rich soiled farmland of the expansive Central Valley.

Sacramento became a city due to the efforts of John Sutter, a Swiss immigrant, and James W. Marshall. Sacramento grew faster due to the protection of Sutter's Fort, which was established by Sutter in 1839. During the California Gold Rush, Sacramento was a major distribution point, a commercial and agricultural center, and a terminus for wagon trains, stagecoaches, riverboats, the telegraph, the Pony Express, and the First Transcontinental Railroad.

Old Sacramento attracts visitors from all over with its cobbled streets, railroad museum, shops and restaurants along the river. Some historic buildings, some from the 1860s have been preserved, restored or reconstructed, and the district is now a substantial tourist attraction, with rides on steam-hauled historic trains and paddle steamers.

The Sacramento area has one of the largest collection of community theatres in California. Along with an abundance of museums, historic buildings, one could spend days and days here exploring. Recreation and boating activities can be enjoyed on the two major rivers that run through as well as nearby foothills where one can enjoy hiking, biking, tennis, fishing and golf.
