If you’re planning a trip to Sacramento, put these activities on your to-do list:
1. Visit the California Indian Heritage Center. Learn about the state’s first inhabitants at this museum. It honors Native American culture with exhibits of dugout canoes, weapons, pottery and basketry.
2. Find out about the state’s history at the California Museum. The museum focuses on the people, places and events that shaped the state. Don’t miss the “California’s Remarkable Women” display to see the mark that ladies left. You’ll see everyone from designer Ray Eames to Congresswoman Karen Bass honored there.
3. Walk through Old Sacramento. This National Landmark, a revitalized district, offers a slew of nice shops, restaurants, nightclubs and museums.
4. Tour the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company. Beer lovers will want to tour this microbrewery and see how it uses European methods to make its refreshing suds, like its famous Pale Ale.
