Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Sacramento area.
Sacramento was born in the 1800s, when California was still run by the Mexican government. The founder of Sacramento was Johann Sutter, recipient of a large land grant from the Mexican governor, who established a fort near where the Sacramento and American Rivers met, about 90 miles northeast of San Francisco and the Pacific Coast. Less than eight years later, James Marshall discovered gold about 50 miles to the east of Sutter's fort, and the California Gold Rush began. Sacramento formed quickly thereafter, as it was the nearest town to the prospectors' claims, understandably becoming the capital when California attained statehood. From its beginning, Sacramento was one of the first centers of money, culture and refinement in the new west. The railroads and pony express followed shortly thereafter, regarding Sacramento as the western end of the line, which finally effected a civilized connection between California and the east. Sacramento is sheltered in its inland location from the cold, wet winds of the coast, and its climate year round is within pleasant extremes, similar to that of the Mediterranean region. Although California's coastal towns are now more famous for their cultural offerings, Sacramento was the first to acquire the finer features of civilization found in the east, and has remained true to its origins. Sacramento maintains an excellent array of ballet, opera and theatre companies, a symphony orchestra, and an unusual number of museums and galleries for a town of its size. Its advantageous riverfront position, along with even, year-round low humidity make the Sacramento area perfect for all kinds of outdoor and water-related activities.
