Top 10 Things To do Over Christmas Break in Sacramento

California State Capital Museum,Sacramento

 How great it would be to have ten days or so to just go do what I want… I can hardly imagine how that would feel, to be in Sacramento and not have a thing to do, not one appointment, one phone call to make, not one bill to pay or anybody to check up on.

The last time I felt like that was a long time ago when I would come home from college. If I had to find something to do for the next ten days, I would:

1. Visit Crocker Art Museum;

     -Founded in the 1870s, Crocker Art Museum is known as the first art museum in the West…

2. Go to Sutter’s Fort

     -Built in 1839, it is the original California gold rush symbol, and really fun employees/guides…

3. Meander through the California State Indian Museum

     -Right next to Sutter’s fort, a quick tour and very interesting. History from a Native American view…

4. Hang out at the Sacramento Zoo

     -Home to over 400 animals, educational amphitheater, and a train runs through the grounds…

5. Go check out the California State Capitol Museum

     -See the intricately detailed tile floors and craftsmanship of a bygone era… open since 1869

6. See The Governors Mansion State historic Park

     -Built in 1877, 14-feet ceilings, Persian carpets, ornate moldings, crystal chandeliers, Italian marble…

7. See a movie at downtown Sacramento’s IMAX Theatre

     -They say it’s the most powerful movie experience created!

8. Go through the Railroad Museum at Old Sacramento

     -Largest train museum in the country, Railroads; as revolutionary as  Space travel,  the Internet is today…

9. Visit the California Military Museum (old Sacramento again)

     -Chronological artifacts; Before Statehood, the Spanish/American War, Civil War, World War I and II….

10. Check out the old cars at Towe Auto Museum

     -More than 150 classics, if you like history, old cars and exploring our passion for speed…

It seems like my tastes have changed, since I last had ten days or so to just goof off in Sacramento. One of these days…
