Romantic City Guide: Sacramento
By Ron Zvagelsky
Sacramento is a great city for couples to visit, especially those who are more interested in the history of the area, but there are activities for those who may not be into going to museums and historical places.
Old Sacramento is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the area. The area looks like a section of the city stuck in the 1800’s, and although there are a few modern businesses in the area, Old Sacramento is more of a hotspot among tourists rather than a residential or commercial area. There are several museums and quaint shops in the area, as well as a few restaurants. The most visited part of Old Sacramento is the California State Railroad Museum, full of artifacts and trains, many of which are intact from the time they were last used. (Travel to California became much easier and quicker with the introduction of the Steam Engine.)
The city of Sacramento is also home to many festivals that many people come from all over the world to attend. The Traditional Jazz Music Festival is held annually over the Memorial Day Weekend and the California State Fair is one of the most popular events of its kind in the world. Held annually for the last 152 years, the California State Fair draws in more than a million visitors each year and is always filled with fun exhibits and entertaining performances.
As far as dining is concerned, Morton’s Steakhouse is a wonderful upscale restaurant to spend the night at, as is the Biba Ristorante Italiano, which has won the “Best Restaurant in Sacramento” award multiple times. If you are in the mood for Chinese, P.F. Chang's China Bistro is always a favorite spot among couples.
Sacramento is a city that is buzzing with excitement and there is plenty to do and see in the wonderful city.
