About Downtown Sacramento

The Downtown neighborhood is the very heart of Sacramento. This is a place with two identities: the daytime work crowd and the nighttime fun crowd. This is a neighborhood full of tall lofts and commercial buildings with converted Victorians that serve as restaurants, residential units, and local businesses. Downtown also has some of the city's most exciting attractions that include museums, restaurants, and abundant green space.

Around Downtown Sacramento

For professionals working in Downtown, the closer one is to the capital building, the better. For the party crowd, flats along J Street, K Street, or down along the semi-industrial area of R Street are the hottest places. For those who love the action, but not directly on their doorstep, there are a few quieter neighborhoods tucked around such as Boulevard Park.

The restaurants in Downtown are vibrant and abundant. There are world-class restaurants everywhere and mixed into the lot are small cafes, bistros, and coffee shops. Expect to find a line almost everywhere you go for dinner on any day of the week. There are trendy bars and neighborhood hole-in-the-walls and Downtown always has a vibrant and festive spirit.

Expect to see a change from day to night as the business crowd goes home and the evening crowd emerges. There is plenty of places to shop for food, goods, and luxury items. Expect to also see a huge diversity in architecture with beautiful Victorian homes parked next to multistory office buildings and loft buildings.

A Friday night is typically drinks and small plates at one of the local pubs, followed by entertainment, such as music in the park or a concert at the arena. Dinner is a late event and usually a long affair. Dessert is on the way to your next venue which means stopping in one of the many shops for something decadent before heading to one of the nightclubs with live music.

Sleeping in followed by a walk to brunch along L Street and then meeting up with friends to socialize, shop, play. The neighborhood is home to a few parks where disc golf and other sports are always going on. For a more leisurely Sunday, residents visit the California State Capitol Museum, Old Sacramento Schoolhouse Museum, or Crocker Art Museum.

Fun and entertaining area

If you're looking for something fun to do in Sac, you gotta go downtown. Especially now with the new golden one center, there are a lot of great things to do. Also I recommend Sac Brew Bike, which is basically a bike tour of all downtowns hot bars and breweries while you pedal and drink around a table. Great for groups or couples.
