Destination Sacramento!

Go back to Getaways

Discover California’s state Capitol and re-live the Gold Rush era, while staying in a beautiful Victorian mansion.

About the Trip

Sacramento is both the capital of the GoldenS tate and your gateway to Gold Country! Explore all the city has to offer while staying in the heart of downtown, in an elegant mansion built by a Gold Rush millionaire. Take a guided tour of the State Capitol building and spend an afternoon exploring the shops and sights of Old Sacramento, where the Gold Rush comes to life, complete with boardwalks and buggies. Your package also includes admission to the California State Railway Museum and the newly expanded Crocker Art Museum. Extend your visit with a rafting or tubing adventure on the American River, or rent bikes and ride the American River Parkway. And if you visit during the third Saturday of the month, you can join a living history program at Sutter’s Fort specially designed for the Girl Scouts 100th anniversary.
