Interesting history of Sacramento and early California during the Gold Rush.
Sutter’s Fort is a historical Sacramento landmark. Often filled with school children on field trips. Next door to the Indian Museum too.
I went here as a kid, but haven't been there since. I remembered it being an interesting place and I had a great time. Any one interested in California history would probably love it.
“This place is located in Old Sacramento and was a very informative tour for very low cost.”
“Old Sacramento is the riverfront historic district, with Gold Rush-era buildings, cobblestone streets, and horse-drawn carriages. It’s home to numerous museums, excursion train rides, souvenir shops, antiques, and several restaurants and bars.”
“Founded in 1885, the Crocker Art Museum is the oldest art museum west of the Mississippi River. It holds one of the state's premier collections of Californian art.”
“ Founded in 1927, the Sacramento Zoo is home to nearly 500 animals representing species around the world. Their mission is to inspire appreciation, respect, and a connection with wildlife through education, recreation, and conservation.”
