Sacramento newspapers

The primary newspaper is The Sacramento Bee, founded in 1857 by James McClatchy. Its rival, the Sacramento Union, started publishing six years earlier in 1851; it closed its doors in 1994. Writer and journalist Mark Twain wrote for the Union in 1866. In late 2004, a new Sacramento Union returned with bimonthly magazines and in May 2005 began monthly publication, but does not intend to return as a daily newspaper. In 2006, The McClatchy Company purchased Knight Ridder Inc. to become the second-largest newspaper publisher in the United States. The Sacramento Bee has won five Pulitzer Prizes in its history. It has won numerous other awards, including many for its progressive public service campaigns promoting free speech (the Bee often criticized government policy, and uncovered many scandals hurting Californians), anti-racism (the Bee supported the Union during the American Civil War and publicly denounced the Ku Klux Klan), worker's rights (the Bee has a strong history of supporting unionization), and environmental protection (leading numerous tree-planting campaigns and fighting against environmental destruction in the Sierra Nevada).

The state capitol building
The state capitol building
Sacramento [1] is the state capital of California in the United States.

Understand

Sacramento is the oldest incorporated city in California settled between the confluences of the Sacramento and American rivers. It was founded in 1849 and there are many reminders of the history of the city including Sutter's Fort, Old Sacramento, and remnants of the original ground level of Sacramento. It experienced explosive growth when gold was discovered in 1848, and the gold rush that followed was the largest human migration in history. Currently it has a population of 460,000 in the city and over two million in the metropolitan area.
The pace of life is somewhat slower than in other large Californian cities, and the people are generally warm and friendly. According to Time magazine Sacramento is the most diverse city in the USA. The city used to be an affordable place, but it suffered from the San Francisco Bay Area's dotcom rise and fall, and real estate went from undervalued to overvalued. The market is correcting itself so property values are dropping to where they should be.

Climate

Sacramento has a Mediterranean-type climate with mild, wet winters and hot, dry summers. Being farther inland than most of the other major California cities, Sacramento is subject to more temperature variation. Winter high temperatures are commonly in the 50s and 60s Fahrenheit (10-20*C), and at night the temperature drops below freezing every so often. The summer heat can be intense, with temperatures exceeding 100*F not unusual. Nights can still be chilly, though.
Most rain falls in the winter months, though on rare occasions spring, fall and early summer can also see rain. Winter is known not only for its rain but also its dense fog, which can hamper driving conditions and reduce visibility to 100 feet (30 m) at times. Snow is rare, but once every 5-10 years a light dusting occurs, and even some light accumulation away from the city. In the foothills not far east of the city, though, snow is much more common.
Severe weather is rare in Sacramento, with the primary concern being heat in summer and flooding in winter. Occasional summer thunderstorms and even tornadoes can occur, but they are rare.

By foot

Historic Old Sacramento, the Riverfront, and the California State Railroad Museum are all within an easy five minute walk of the train station. The Capitol is a 15 minute walk from Old Sacramento.

Drink

Nightlife in Sacramento is vibrant if you know where to look. Simple rule, stay Downtown or in Midtown. Generally speaking this is where most tourists are anyways. The upscale clubs and lounges tend to be on or near J Street. Directly across from the Capitol grounds is the Park which is the premiere Sacramento nightclub. But the dress code and cover charges tend to be stiff. Just around the corner is the Capitol Garage which typically has guest DJ's on Saturday and a $5 cover in a laid back atmosphere. On K st. mall you'll find Marilyn's which is a really cool underground bar in the heart of downtown which showcases local live music talent. Nearby is the Crest Theater, an independent historic movie theater that boasts art deco design. In the summer you can catch the French Film Festival here as well as the Trash Film Orgy, an all-night spectacle of old B movie flicks where locals gather in their cheesiest costumes. On most days of the year however the Crest is the place to catch foreign and independent films as well as traveling stand-up comedy and music acts. On 16th and R st. you'll find the popular bar R15. This is a trendy bar/restaurant (Cafe Bernardo is attached) that has an urban industrial feel. Despite being trendy the prices are very affordable with $2 Pabst on tap and $1 pool tables. They also boast couches and big screens where you can play x-box for free with a couple friends. Next door is the club Empire. Stiff cover charges and a dress code. Empire attracts a younger crowd as it's 18 and up most nights. Another popular club is Avalon. Stiff cover charges and dress code as well but Avalon attracts an older crowd than Empire and less pretentious crowd than the Park. On 10th and S st. you'll find the popular indie-rock venue Old Ironsides. Local and traveling indie-rock talent showcase their music here. Every Tuesday you can catch Lipstick, a popular indie-rock dance party where you'll find mostly hip Midtown locals. Every first Saturday of the month you can catch After Dark which is like Lipstick only on a Saturday so it attracts a more varied metropolitan crowd. The Press Club on 21st and P is popular with the college crowd with its $5 cover charges and cheap $3 24oz. of Pabst. It's known for playing 80's dance music and the best nights to go are Wednesday's or Thursday's as it's a small club and on weekends gets unbearably overcrowded.

Stay safe

Downtown has a lot of one-way streets which can be confusing and are not always well marked (hint: look at the direction in which cars are parked).
Sacramento is generally a safe place to visit. But as with almost any big city, it has it's places to avoid. At night, if you can avoid the following areas it is advised to do so:
South Sacramento Area: Especially at night. There are many gang members prowling the streets especially around MLK, Fruitridge, and Franklin Blvds, and Mack & Meadowview Rds. It has been cleaned up in recent years but it still a very rough neighborhood.
North Highlands: At night, the "working girls" are usually strolling Watt Ave between Roseville Rd & I-80. This brings the usual drugs, guns, and crime with it. The motels at Longview & I-80 are some of the worst in the north Sacramento area. Avoid it if at all possible.
Del Paso Heights: One of the worst crime infested areas in the Sacramento Region.. AVOID IT.
Oak Park: Part of the South Sacramento area. Not as bad but should be avoided.
As with any urban area, no matter where you are, stay safe. Watch your back, lock your car doors, don't carry a large amount of cash, and dont wear flashy clothing or jewerly. Carry some means of self defence (Like pepper spray, stun gun, or even a firearm if you are licenced to do so) For tourists from another country, a small can of pepper spray is a good choice. They are sold at most larger stores or even gun stores. Just don't take them on the plane with you..

Get out

Part of the beauty of Sacramento is its central location. It's sometimes possible to go skiing in the morning, and surfing in the afternoon. All within a couple hours by car:
  • Lake Tahoe, a gorgeous lake on the Nevada border, with gambling on the Nevada side
  • Reno, a little bit o' gambling just over the border in Nevada
  • Gold Country, The gold country encompasses several small towns in the Sierra Nevada foothills
  • San Francisco, does it need an introduction?
  • Napa Valley, gorgeous landscape and the most famous wine-tasting in the States
