Sacramento Facts and Figures
Sacramento is the sixth capital California has had in over a hundred and fifty years. San Jose, Monterey, Benicia and Vallejo have been the state capitals in the past. Sacramento is not one but two cities actually. There is a massive network of tunnels underneath the foundation of Sacramento.
Sacramento has plenty of museums. California State Railroad Museum and Crocker Art Museum are among the more popular ones but there are dozens more, many of which have free admission.
Sacramento Zoo is as much of a wondrous refuge for animals as it is historically significant. The zoo dates back to 1927 and has always been one of the most frequented places in the city, among locals and tourists alike.
You should consider holidaying in Sacramento either in autumn or spring. You may want to avoid the summer months. It usually gets quite hot. You would not have to deal with a scorching sun but the weather is not ideal or even pleasant if you intend to spend a lot of time outdoor.
You ought to try cheeseburgers in Sacramento. Not at the In N’ Out or McDonald’s or Five Guys. These are great brands but the kind of burgers you can get at the likes of Squeeze Inn will compel you to forget whatever you may have held as your favorite all this while. The sheer size of the slice of cheese in their famous cheeseburger will boggle your mind.
