Sacramento Airport Guide

Sacramento has plenty to see. Begin with the centre of the state’s political life, the State Capitol, where you can enjoy a guided tour of the building as well as finding out all about its history. Next visit Sutter’s Fort, one of the earliest established forts in the west and the oldest fully restored fort in the US. There’s Old Sacramento too, once a thriving part of the city, it’s now fallen asleep into a living history project with exhibits of the old railroad that ended there as well as the History Museum which can tell you all about what you have just walked past.

Sacramento Airport Directions

From the airport take the West Side Highway until it joins route 99 south into the city.

Sacramento Airport Parking

Parking at Sacramento depends on how well you balance convenience with cost. It’s quite pricey to park in the airport garage but if you don’t mind a little shuttle ride, you’ll find much cheaper parking offsite.

Sacramento Airport Flight Information

Sacramento International Airport has flights to other US airports and Mexico but none outside of North America. For travellers from Europe and the UK, the best option is to fly to Chicago or Atlanta and connect from there.

Sacramento Info

Sacramento is a very laid back city and that’s saying something when compared to the other laid back cities in California. It’s small enough to retain a hometown feel and great hospitality too. It began life in 1839 and grew frantically nine years later with the discovery of gold nearby. Once the home of Ronald Reagan, the current governor of the state no longer lives in what has been the state capital for over 150 years.

Sacramento Trivia:
  • Sacramento is the state capital of California despite being one of its smaller cities
  • The city is the oldest in the state of California
  • It grew exponentially in 1848 when gold was discovered in nearby Coloma
  • It’s recognised as one of the most culturally diverse cities in the US
