  • Still set up like an old town which is cool. Loads of shops and cafes and there is also the history museum and the old railroad.

  • Old Sacramento is a multi-block section of Sacramento with buildings designed to look like those in the Old West. But what is it? It’s not authentic or - to my knowledge - historic, as the buildings.....  more

  • If you like historical places than this should be on your bucket list of places to visit. From the raised wooden sidewalks to the train station you can feel the old west is still alive here. This place does not hide it's history and that is a much welcome thing to see. Make sure you visit the Lady Adams Building while you are there. It is home to one of the best costume shops named Evangeline's Costume Mansion that I have ever set foot in. They have everything you could ask for in a costume shop. The prices are very reasonable too. Overall I give Old Sacramento a solid 10/10.
  • Great place to spend time with family. The Delta King Ship Hotel was beautiful to view at night. At the same time somehow it looks creepy. Feeling like a walk on the Titanic. The Ferrys Wheel is functional and it did not take much time to wait on the queue line. We would definitely go back here on a sunny day to experience more wonderful views. Beware a lot a pot smokers around👌👌👌
