Sacramento is the capital city of the US state of California. However, it is only the 6th largest city in the state, and does not suffer the busy tourist reputation of its more-famous counterparts.

Labelled ‘America’s most diverse city’, Sacramento successfully incorporates several ethnic populations, resulting in a vibrant and eclectic mixture of restaurants, bars and shopping outlets, as well as a wonderfully festival-like nightlife scene when the city really begins to come to life.

The city maintains a typically Californian climate, and tends to stay fairly warm throughout the year, while temperatures soar during the summer months.

Arriving Sacramento Airport

Sacramento International Airport is the primary airport serving the American city of Sacramento, based in the US state of California.

Located approximately 5km from downtown Sacramento, taxi cabs from the airport to the city center can cost as little as $7-$12 for this particular journey.

With its modern new terminal, the efficiency of airport processes has increased greatly in the last few years, and check in, customs, baggage collection and car rental procedures should not take you too long to navigate and pass through.

The airport does not offer as many facilities as other Californian operators, but there is a decent selection of shopping and dining outlets, which are reasonably priced and offer good quality service.

Driving In Sacramento

Driving in Sacramento is fairly easy, as it is far quieter in general than other, tourist-heavier Californian cities.

Traffic levels are fairly low throughout the day and only really gather between 8am-9am and 5pm-6pm. You should not have any trouble with traffic providing you avoid the city at these times.

Sacramento offers a modern major road network, and roads are extremely well-maintained. Road signage is also ample and it is one of the more easy to navigate Californian cities in general.

The public transport system is also one of California’s best and you should have no problem at all in parking your car in the city and using the bus to visit the local attractions. Car parking is fairly inexpensive and there’s seems to be plenty of availability at most points during the day.
