Time Off In Sacramento

Aug 21, 2007
Sacramento is the summer city and the capital of California and a place popular for its roses and politics. The one thing you will notice about Sacramento is its beautifully landscaped parks and gardens, always blooming with fragrant roses. Everywhere you go in Sacramento, be it the residential areas or the business district it all looks like one big park with its Dutch elms and weeping cherry trees which provide the much needed shade in this sunny city. This once drowsy commuter town is now bustling with activity and movement, being the state capital. It is now a city filled with fine-dining options, exciting nightlife, high buildings and shopping malls and of course avenues of commerce.

On your list

If you are a business traveler and have some time to spare between meetings or conferences, then consider spending your time sight seeing and getting familiar with the city. Sacramento has a rich history and background to flaunt.

Old Sacramento

If you are a history buff, then old Sacramento has to feature in your list of must-sees in Sacramento. This 28-acre river-facing park is symbolic of the gold rush era. This part of Sacramento, called Old Sacramento gets its name because it is the oldest settlement in Sacramento. Old Sacramento is a very picturesque place, with its pretty cobbled streets, sidewalks and ancient architecture. The saloons and bathhouses are unique and the California Railroad Museum is something you should not miss when you come to Old Sacramento.

State Capitol

The State Capitol is the place to be if you want a first hand look at the California state government. The Capitol Park, where this structure is located in is home to several other monuments, like the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The architecture of the State Capitol building is a sight to behold; it was completed in the year 1874 and represents the architecture of the future. The specialty of this construction is its 120-foot rotunda and office displays of a period gone by. This state Capitol is the home to the governor of California.

Crocker Art Museum

For all those art lovers on a business trip, who cannot stay away from art for too long, a visit to the Crocker Art Museum is a must. This museum is home to the largest collection of California Art in the country. The Crocker Art Museum is the oldest museum in West Mississippi, since 1885. This museum not only has Californian art depicting the gold rush, but also European and Asian Art. The building of the Crocker Art Museum is a beautiful work of art in itself, being influenced by Italian architecture.

ARCO Arena

If you want to spend your free time from work catching up on some sports, music concerts or bands playing live or any other event, then you can visit the ARCO arena. This the most popular place for events in Sacramento because it is a huge arena, which can accommodate more than 17,000 people!

Sacramento is a tourist town, but if you do happen to be here for a business trip, then do not miss out on these places, whether you are a history enthusiast or an art critic.
