Old Sacramento is for tourists – First, I've got to say that contrary to what another reviewer said Old Sacramento DOES NOT have all the 'hot spots'. In fact, it almost has none. Most out-of-town visitors don't make it into trendy Midtown, Sacramento's hippest neighborhood, so I'm not surprised they would think that. Old Sacramento has enough to keep you interested/entertained for only few hours and not much longer. Most Sacramentians rarely visit Old Sacramento on regular basis so it doesn't feel like a real part of the city and you'll just be hanging out with other tourists. It's also pretty much geared to a certain socio-economic 'type' which makes people watching rather unappealing. Visit the Railroad Museum and wander around, have a ice cream/snack/what-not but save your appetite for better restaurants in Midtown.

People who complain about the parking are probably your typical suburbanite who can't be bothered to walk a couple of blocks. There's more than enough parking within walking distance. If your really worried about parking fees you can always park your car at an outlying light rail station lot for free and take the train into town.

Old West...and Modern CA in 6 blocks – Old Sac is a great attraction for visitors to California's capitol. It's a great place to just stroll and visit different stores, try a restaurant or two. You can often find something in the stores here that you couldn't find in a regular "mall". One of my favorite "kitschy" stores is here, Evangeline. When I lived in Davis, I'd spend an afternoon in Old Sac and stroll over to the K Street Mall to find the standard stores. Also, if you ever get a chance to "do" a festival in Old Sac, I recommend it. They're usually crowded, but always fun.

Storefronts, saloons and cobblestone streets await in this historic area on the Sacramento River. – Overview
Sacramento's biggest attraction harks back to the mid-19th century and Gold Rush fever. Miners flocked to this boomtown, dreaming of sparkling nuggets that would make them filthy rich. The gold diggers' mecca survived flood and fire to become a National Landmark boasting 53 historic buildings and the Delta King, a paddlewheel boat from the days of yore. Visitors can also find rows of specialty shops, restaurants and tourist traps along the wood-planked sidewalks.

The Experience
Residents and visitors venture to Old Sacramento for some of the best bars and restaurants in town. The area also has museums, carriage rides, shows and shops. Wear sensible shoes and prepare for a crowd--more than 5 million visit this site annually.

Old Sac is new – What a dissapointment. All new business, everything has been remodeled. There are some interesting museums. I would have preffered more static displays of how daily life was in the 1850's.

Too Expensive !!! – There is nothing to do except walk around and spend money on things you don't need anyway. Also parking fee's are outrageous and you have to walk too far through areas that are dark and potentially dangerous. If you to look at old buildings with expensive shops and restaurants this is the place for you. The only exception to all of this is the Spirit Of Sacramento cruise. which is Excellent.

Nothing is FREE – Old Sac is a great outing when you're low on cash, however parking sucks and it is not totally free if you wanna do something. I think this category should be titles, 'The cheapest outing in Sacramento' you can eat cheap and park cheap. There are always free activities in Old Sac like the fireworks on the 4th and on New Years and all Sacramento's hot spots are in Old Sac. For a cheap outing I definately reccomend visiting Old Sacramento.
