Foodie at heart?
Sacramento is known as America’s Farm to fork capital! In the fall, the Visit Sacramento’s Farm-to-Fork Festival events were created as a celebration of the region’s incredible food and agriculture and a chance to introduce people to the chefs, farmers, ranchers, vintners, and brewers who are bringing delicious food and drinks to our table every day. Since 2013, the Farm-to-Fork events have become some of the country’s most anticipated food and music festivals and culinary experiences, drawing thousands of visitors from across the country and around the world.
For the Wine and Beer Lovers among us:
More than 50 local breweries operate in and around the city, and many of them source their ingredients locally, ensuring unique flavor profiles and truly local beers. Today’s Sacramento beer scene is vibrant, and from tours of hop yards owned by local brewers to beer dinners, multiple beer festivals, the Farm-to-Fork Celebration, and craft brew tasting rooms scattered throughout the downtown and Midtown core, it’s more accessible than ever before. Roseville is also surrounded by California’s most popular wineries, including those on the Placer County Wine Trail located in the Sierra Foothills, Napa Valley, and Amador County.
Old Sacramento is known for the cobbled streets traversed by horse-drawn carriages heralding a throwback to the 1850s and 1860s. Reconstructed buildings and re-enactments provide plenty of intriguing sightseeing opportunities. If you’re a braver soul, feel free to venture below to explore the abandoned tunnels of the original, flooded-out city.
