3 Days in Sacramento for Foodies

Organisiert von Erin Greenwho travels to Sacramento again and again.

Sacramento might be best known for its Gold Rush history and many museums and monuments, but to those in-the-know, the city’s food scene is a big draw. In fact, many call it the fork-to-table capital of America. Enjoying the town’s delicious eats is also a great way to learn about the city’s history.

Over years of visiting the California capital to visit friends, I’ve developed a huge list of favorite spots. I also love to find out about the city’s evolving foodie scene through taking walking food tours and chatting with local chefs. Here are a few top spots, plus other ways to enjoy the city’s food scene.

It’s usually pleasant in Sacramento; you’ll want a raincoat with you from September to March and light clothing in the summertime.

If you only have time for one thing, make sure to take a walking tour to get a good overview of the food scene.

Day 1

The day you arrive, take a food- and history-focused walking tour of downtown. You’ll get the lay of the land and also be able to note spots to come back to later.

Afterwards, take a stroll along the American River for a dose of nature and some fresh air, then enjoy a sunset cocktail cruise, where you can have a little dance to the onboard DJ’s tunes and watch the city light up.

Lastly, for dinner, dive into the farm-to-table scene with some modern comfort food; Q1227 in Roseville (a nearby suburb) is a good place to start.

Day 2

On your second day, there’s more local history and food to check out, so head to the tree-lined Sutter District, which is full of both historically significant sites and restaurants.

Once you’ve gotten a great dose of history (and have a reasonably full belly), it’s time to take a cooking class. A Sardinian-American chef offers classes that will show you how to use local ingredients to make Italian specialties.

If you still have time for a sweet treat, make your way to Vic’s Ice Cream, a family-run place that has been serving since 1947.

Day 3

For your last day, head out of town for a day in wine country; Napa is only an hour away. Hire a driver and do some tastings mid-morning, then pick out some bottles to take home.

After your drive back, stretch your legs and have a little competitive fun by doing a scavenger hunt through the city with your friends.

By the time you’re finished, you’ll be ready to treat yourself to a final meal at one of the loveliest restaurants in town, the Waterboy. Start with local oysters and indulge in Italian-inspired fare to cap off your trip.
