Sacramento: An adventure paradise!

STORY BY Anne 8th September 2017

Sacramento is well-known for its Gold Rush history but not many people know that it is also an adventure paradise…

Home to the American River Trail, a 32 mile adventure trail from Sacramento to Folsom offers a scenic ride for those that like to take in their surroundings and perhaps enjoy the offering of the surrounding vineyards. Once you arrive at Folsom Lake there is a wide variety of blue, green and black trails to satisfy the every need of the more experienced mountain biker.

  • Centrally located in Northern California. It is a short distance from the California Wine Country, Historic Gold Country, California Redwoods, San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, Reno and Yosemite. Sacramento is one of California’s most accessible major cities.
  • Surrounded by beautiful and accessible landscape. The American and Sacramento rivers provide hundreds of miles of waterways and the 30-mile-long American River Bike Trail. Sacramento is also home to 2,000 acres of city parks, more than 50 golf courses and two nearby lakes.
  • The river lends itself perfectly for some white water rafting as well for the real thrill seekers! While the calmer parts of the river are perfect for paddle boarding and kayaking…

Sacramento is America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital and the only star on the map of California. The city is buzzing with things to taste, see and savor, from farm-fresh restaurants, plentiful farmers’ markets, home-grown breweries, colorful street murals, Gold Rush-era family attractions or a sunset walk along the river.

There are more restaurants with high Zagat ratings in Sacramento than anywhere else in Northern California. Fine dining restaurants are nestled in historic buildings on blocks with art galleries, bookstores and mom-and-pop shops.  A brand Kimpton Hotel is opening in the heart of Down Town Sacramento later this year with a rooftop pool deck and great access to the city’s finest dining establishments so even more of a reason to visit.

How to get there:   Flights to Oakland in September starting at 179.90 one way with Norwegian and hotels in the heart of the city range between £50 and £200 per night.
