Overall Guide : The generous city council offers you free tours of the grand State Capital building and sightseeing in Old Sacramento (a historic part of town with recreated buildings and riverboats, showcasing early American history). Take a ride on a steam train,... more revive the past at the Pony Express station or just photograph yourself in an old-fashioned Wild West cowboy costume. Sacramento is a city of festivals. The Sacramento Jazz Jubilee is held during the Memorial Day weekend in late May, and if you visit in early September you can be a part of the exciting Gold Rush Days, which commemorate the historic discovery of gold in California 150 years ago. You can let your hair down by jet-skiing or taking a trip on a power boat on the American River or spend a cool evening at one of the city’s 32 theatres or museums. The California State Railroad Museum lets you ride a live steam locomotive, and the historic Sutter’s Fort is an American monument worth visiting.
