Forget whatever you thought you knew about this capital city, because Sacramento’s reinventing itself in the new decade with a focus on farm-fresh food, handcrafted spirits, and boundless adventures. As one of the next great American cities, Sacramento is rising with a hip new vibe, while still preserving its past.
Here you can teleport back to the 1800s with a walk around Old Town Sacramento, where Gold Rush-era structures, preserved wooden walkways, and vintage signs harken back to a bygone era. Or see the city’s future in its newest hotspot: Downtown Commons. Nicknamed DoCo, the area houses retail, restaurants, entertainment venues, bars, and the new Golden 1 Center sports facility. Its modern design and locally sourced cuisine offer a taste of what’s coming to California’s capital.
Whether you stay at a luxurious DoCo hotel or sleep on a riverboat in historic Old Town, these are some of the coolest and most charming places to spend a night in Sacramento.
