Sacramento has a thriving dining scene, and has more top rated eateries than any other city in Northern California. Locavores will find plenty to enjoy in Sacramento, which is the top destination in America for ‘farm-to-fork’ restaurants. There’s also an abundance of farmers markets and local craft beer producers, as well as five wine producing regions within driving distance.

As well as being a top destination for foodies, Sacramento also has plenty to offer culture vultures.

The suburbs of Sacramento tend to sprawl, but if you want to be near the heart of the action it’s best to look for hotels in either Downtown or Midtown.

With over 230 days of sunshine each year, you’re sure to find plenty of opportunities to get out and discover the nearby Gold Country and its historic towns. There are plenty of museums, art galleries, and boutiques to duck into if a rare rain shower takes you by surprise.

There are plenty of great hotel deals available in Sacremento. The best time to visit is at the weekend. Sacramento is a popular destination with business travellers, so midweek prices tend to be higher. If you’re planning a trip to Sacramento it’s always worth checking that there are no large conferences or events taking place during your trip, as these can also push up hotel prices.
