There was one home/kitchen store that provided entertainment. There were a couple of art/jewelry shops with limited displays. There are a...More

The old buildings are nice but they are all filled with tourist trap sorts of shops, bars and restaurants. But worst of all is a major California highway, 99, is literally right on one side with traffic whizzing by, the noise is horrible.

Old Sacramento - lot of cool shops like Evangline, sweet candy stores and other different shops. It's by river - good to watch some boat go by sometimes. Holidays are fun too especially Christmas, Halloween and Mardi Gras! A must visit in Sacramento.

It's safe and not too busy. Lots of fun shops to walk around. Lots of yummy food - great selection of cheap (Subway) to fine dining. It's on the river, making it very scenic.

Old Town Sacramento has undergone a lot of changes in the last few years, but one thing remains constant and that is keeping the history of the area preserved. There is a LOT to see, and you really have to plan a whole day to...More
