Sacramento looks so not California. It looks more like Austin, Texas.

I don't know whether to be complimented or offended. I'm kidding. Innov8, you have managed to capture our great city at almost every angle possible. You have managed to capture the very essence of the city. Great job.

all it has to offer is location. awesome mountains nearby and 1.5 hours drive to SF. Sacramento itself sucks...

Well, it sounds like you don't know the city very well, and that's okay. I have
never found myself at a loss for something to do and I'm always thankful that
I live here after traveling here and there.

- Ride or walk the American River bike trail
- Water ski on Sacramento river
- Second Saturday
- Visit the “old towns” of Folsom, Fair Oaks, Roseville, Sacramento
- See a show at the Crest Theatre which hosts to concerts, comedians, speakers,
films and more or the Tower Theater on Broadway.
- River Cats game at Raley Field or Kings at Arco
- Sacramento’s late-night scene in mid-town
- Attend local live performances at the Sacramento Theatre Company, the B Street
Theatre, The Sacramento Ballet, Sacramento Opera or Sacramento Philharmonic,
and Cosmopolitan.
- Catch an event at Sacramento Memorial Auditorium.
- Lots of great golf courses.

Here’s a few things off the top of my head that I and some of my friends and I have
enjoyed about the city… and there are many more I did not list. Everyone has a
different idea of what awesome and cool things to do, so yours idea might be much
different than mine. But, like you said, Sacramento is also within an hour or so lots of
other great activates too… which is another advantage to living here.

Say, don't forget other great things like Old Sacramento, walking along the River, a ride upriver on the Spirit of Sacramento, things like that. Or, a tour of the Capitol, if they still do them. And there's TONS of great restaurants downtown, like Il Fornaio, Morton's, Vic's Ice Cream if you like classic ice cream parlors, and, if you really like classic American burgers and fries, Suzie Burger over on 29th Street. Hope you don't mind innov8 for adding to your list of activities in Sacramento.

lol. a couple of souvenir stores and a couple of restaurants... that's it... "old town" of Sacramento is ok, but if you are going there every time when you have nothing to do...

gotta check on that one.

here i'll have to agree with you not only in downtown. we have them all over the area. I really love good food. so, yeah...

yep. 1.5 hour drive to SF. Same for Lake Tahoe. + once in a while we go to the ocean. that's where you can really find TONS of interesting things to do and restaurants once again
last year i found an interesting website with list of whaterfalls on the west coast. I visited all of them in a range of 3 hour drive. that was pretty interesting. turned out we have a lot of them.
p.s.
may be i'm just 2 spoiled by big cities i used to live in untill 15 years old
