|Sacramento: History with a Dash of Sizzle|
Discover fine dining, beautiful biking, and a luxurious spa, plus a whole lot of California history.
The state’s capital had its rowdy beginnings along the banks of the Sacramento River. It was here that boats, laden with adventurers in search of their fortune, sailed inland from San Francisco to join the Gold Rush. In the 1960s, historians and city leaders set out to re-create the Old Sacramento waterfront—the first historic district in the West. Today, its cobblestone streets are still packed with visitors enjoying restored buildings filled with candy stores, curio shops, and restaurants, plus excellent museums. A couple of miles south, a splashy resort-style hotel, Le Rivage , rises above the banks of the Sacramento, with pretty riverfront dining and a spoil-yourself spa.
