The Best Bars for Foodies in Sacramento

California's capital city of Sacramento has a rich culture and history paired with countless things to do. Old Sacramento forms the epicenter of visitor activity, with glistening river views, abundant eateries and historical museums, including the popular California State Railroad Museum. History buffs love the downtown area with Capitol Park and Sutter’s Fort, while families with young children have fun visiting the Sacramento Zoo and Fairytale Town. The city also hosts a thriving art scene - you can see local works at The Crocker Art Museum and modern pieces at the Verge Center for the Arts. Make sure to check out live music events and concerts, like the Sacramento Music Festival, Concerts in the Park and the many venues around town. In case you didn't know, Sacramento has earned the title of Farm to Fork Capital of the Country!
