Sacramento is the capital city of California. It’s the economic and cultural core of the entire surrounding metropolitan area, home to approximately a half million residents. Located in the northernmost area of California’s Central Valley, Sacramento sits at the junction of the Sacramento and American Rivers.
In 2002, Sacramento earned the title of “America’s Most Diverse City.” Sacramento’s history is flush with cultural events, from the Swiss “Sutter’s Fort” to an influx of immigrants during the gold rush. One of the most influential groups to make Sacramento home are the Chinese people. Many were driven to leave China for new opportunities during wartime in the 1800s. Arriving with hope for a better life, the Chinese were instrumental in building Sacramento, the local and national railways, and levees surrounding several California communities.
Sacramento residents enjoy several venues of fine arts, culture, entertainment and dining. Visitors can experience life in the 1860s with a tour of Old Sacramento on historic steam trains and paddle steamers. The Sacramento Ballet, Opera and Philharmonic Symphony are major attractions in fine arts. The Crocker Art Museum and the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission, as well as the California Hall Of Fame, are popular destinations.
