When you hear about Sacramento activities in the news, you’re usually hearing about some aspect of politics or state government. That comes with the territory of being California’s capital city, but there are plenty of things to do in Sacramento that don’t involve a visit to the Capitol. Just down the street, for example, the Second Saturday Art Walk draws huge crowds to Midtown's colorful galleries and boutiques. The California State Railroad Museum is the gem of Old Sacramento, but spend some time walking around outside to get a feel for what the city looked like during the Gold Rush. And if you’ve done all that and you’re still wondering what to do in Sacramento, the answer’s simple: grab a cowbell and yell yourself hoarse at a Kings game, the purest (and loudest) of Sacramento events.
