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.

3. The Kitchen
Sacramento markets itself as the Farm-To-Fork town so it's perhaps no surprise that there are some great places to eat in town.

6. The Hook and Ladder Manufacturing Company
If eating with the family, try the Hook and Ladder Manufacturing Company, which as its name suggests is housed in a quirky old industrial space in the Richmond Grove area of town.
