The city of Sacramento is best known as a gold rush town, but in the 21st century, it appeals to many more visitors than just fortune hunters. It's a famous foodie city, and its open green spaces attract nature lovers too. Vacation rentals in Sacramento span the decades: downtown, you'll find ultra-modern apartments or condominiums for a luxurious city break. Over in Old Sacramento, why not stay in a traditional two-story wooden property? Visitors traveling with family members often prefer to head to the city suburbs and a larger, detached property, perhaps with its own private pool.
