ABOUT SACRAMENTO OUR HOST CITY

Your visit to Sacramento, California, can begin with food because you will be in America's Farm-to-Fork Capital. Surrounded by unparalleled agricultural bounty, Sacramento’s restaurants showcase the region’s best products, from juicy tomatoes to lush old-vine Zinfandel, from nutty almonds to succulent lamb. That cornucopia inspires Sacramento’s talented chefs year-round, and the city’s downtown dining scene has boomed in recent years. The city’s hip new dining venues and its longtime favorite haunts alike offer top-notch, inventive fare and high style, together with the welcoming vibe that characterizes this friendly city. The past ten years have brought stunning changes to downtown Sacramento, highlighted by a dramatically changed skyline from that of a sleepy government town to that of a dynamic, modern city. Nightlife options abound, from wine bars and dance clubs, to movie houses and comedy clubs. There is plenty to see and do while in downtown Sacramento.

The art lover will be in heaven in downtown Sacramento. Art galleries and museums are scattered throughout the downtown area. For the tree lover, take a stroll through the 40-acre Capitol Park, just one block from the Convention Center. The park features just under 300 species of trees as well as a rose garden and many memorials. For the history buff, the Gold Rush and California beginnings started here; Old Sacramento historic area is the perfect destination. Accessible by foot or public transportation from the Convention center area, Old Sacramento is a registered national landmark and state historic park off the banks of the Sacramento River. The nostalgic appeal of early American history is reflected perfectly by the wooden sidewalks, horse-drawn carriages, old-fashioned candy shops and Mississippi-style riverboats. Rich in history, Old Sacramento is home to many free attractions.
