Summertime is the perfect time to pack up the car and head out on an epic road trip. Lucky for us, Sacramento is a launching point for some terrific road trips. Whether you’re looking for a Sunday drive or a road trip that lasts several days, here are some ideas to consider.
Sacramento River Delta
Get away for a day or two by driving around the Sacramento River Delta. Visit the marina in Suisun City. Hike around the Rush Ranch Open Space. Go back in time to the Western Railway Museum and Locke at Walnut Grove. Sample boutique wines near the Old Sugar Mill. There’s a whole bunch to see in Sacramento’s backyard region.
Sacramento to Lake Tahoe
Speaking of Sacramento’s backyard region, nothing beats a day trip to Lake Tahoe. You can enjoy Mother Nature’s wondrous beauty as you hike, bike, ski, swim, gamble, horseback ride, or kick back on a lounge chair.
Sacramento to San Francisco
San Francisco is only a couple of hours away, which makes it a popular spot when Sacramento gets too hot. The City is small enough that you can park your car and take a nice, long walk around North Beach, Chinatown, Nob Hill, The Marina District, Haight-Ashbury, and Golden Gate Park. But if you want to drive everywhere around The City, be sure to bring enough change for parking.
Sacramento to Los Angeles
There are plenty of things to see on your drive from Sacramento to Los Angeles. Along the way, there are multiple places to stop and rest during your 6-hour drive. But when you arrive in the Los Angeles Metro Area, that’s where the fun begins. Visit the iconic Hollywood sign, Paramount Studios, Universal Studios, Disneyland, Hollywood Boulevard, and the Stars Walk of Fame; then, go hit the beach.
All these road trips sound like fun, but the most important thing to keep in mind is the safety of your vehicle.
