Park yourself in the heart of downtown and get a room at The Sterling Hotel. The epitome of Sacramento’s beauty and charm, The Sterling intertwines 1890s architecture and 21st-century modern luxury with 16 uniquely styled rooms and a front porch made for summer evenings. This gem is the perfect homebase for exploring the city during the day and relaxing in the evenings.

Daytime activities are endless. In Old Sacramento you can wander the quaint cobblestone streets, gaze at the old building facades and explore the city’s rich history in the Gold Rush days. Pop into Sacramento Sweets Co. for something sweet to nibble on as you walk along the riverfront taking in views of the iconic Tower Bridge.

Wondering how to spend your evenings? How about sipping a cold beer and munching on tasty local eats while listening to the hottest local music around? Concerts in the Park happen every Friday night during the three-month summer concert series. Each year the outdoor concerts showcase talents of local bands, artists and DJs in the heart of the city.

If you’re looking for more arts and culture, get a taste of Broadway Sacramento and their riveting production of Once. The impressive ensemble of actors and musicians playing instruments onstage will dazzle and delight.

With all these experiences and more, Downtown Sacramento is the perfect destination for your Staycation!
