Wine tasting, hidden swimming holes, kayaking with sea lions, scenic hiking trails, historical towns… there’s so many fun weekend trips from Sacramento that are all under 2 hours away.
Sacramento has been quickly growing on me. One of my best friends moved there a few years ago so I’m always up in Sac either running around to all the Goodwills thrift shopping, so we’re using the city as a home base to explore Northern California. And MAN – I’ve rounded up a list of the best day trips from Sacramento for quick hits of adventure.
There are so many fun things to do in Sacramento itself. My favorite are thrifting, eating my way through R Street restaurants, hunting down fun murals, looking at flower gardens around the California State Capitol, exploring Old Town Sacramento and hanging out with friends who live there.
