Visit Sacramento, California

Sacramento was first established in 1839 when Johann Augustus Sutter settled at the confluence of the American and Sacramento Rivers.

In 1848 gold was discovered just 30 miles east in Coloma and the news soon spread like wildfire. Fortune hunters came in their thousands in the hope of striking it rich - in fact at the time it was recorded as the largest human migration in history.

California State Capitol, SacramentoIn 1850 California became a state and Sacramento became its capital four years later. Today the city is at the heart of one of the fastest growing regions in the United States and despite enjoying a peaceful location in a scenic river valley, Sacramento is a cosmopolitan city of tall, gleaming buildings and is well known for its vibrant arts scene.
