Hornblower Cruises & Events jettisons groups on aquatic excursions down Sacramento's eponymous waterway during the Sacramento Historic River Cruise. Afternoon jaunts set guests aboard the Capitol Hornblower for an hour, where staffers narrate the city's history throughout political intrigues and gold rushes that began after King Midas took a bath in the bay. Eyeballs can catch glimpses of sights of the scenic Sacramento River while brains learn about the capital city's history. Should stomachs get peckish over the course of the trip, a variety of snacks and beverages are available for purchase, keeping gullets more hydrated than a sponge caught in a waterspout. Guests can check the online calendar for departure times.
