Sacramento Photos: Our Fans Share Shots of the Sacramento River, Artists, Downtown Sacramento and Local Coffee

 

Sacramento offers a wealth of picturesque sights, fun adventures and hidden corners perfect for relaxation. Our most recent fan photos show a variety of some of the things we like to do in the springtime, from boating to performance arts to simply kicking back and relaxing with a latte.

Sacramento is a city built at the confluence of the American and Sacramento rivers, and locals and visitors alike take to our waterways, especially in the warmer spring and summer months. This photo submitted by Tracy Counts shows a boat at the Riverbank Marina.

Another of Sacramento’s strong points is its diversity of locally owned coffee places, which outnumber the larger chain locations. Mattie Allison Doan shared this photo of lattes at Broadacre Coffee, which is a relatively new spot opened in a former bookstore located at 1014 10th St. in Downtown Sacramento.

There’s no shortage of unique buildings in the Sacramento area, and one that sticks out is the Ziggurat Building across the river in West Sacramento, shown in this photo by Adam Lundt. West Sacramento’s River Walk Park is located near the Ziggurat Building and Raley Field, and it’s one of the best places in the area to get a photo of Downtown Sacramento.

Of course, heading across the river isn’t the only place to get a fantastic shot of Downtown Sacramento. This photo by JHowat Media was taken from the top floor of a publicly accessible parking garage at 14th and H streets. You can see much of Downtown Sacramento and all the way to Tower Bridge next to Old Sacramento.

Speaking of Tower Bridge, it makes an appearance in this photo submitted by Jessica Bianucci of her friend, Lexi Whaley, who is a local dancer. Sacramento has a wealth of performing arts, from the Sacramento Ballet to numerous theaters showing locally produced shows or Broadway hits. Find out what events will be going on when you stay here by visiting Sacramento 365.

The rivers are great, but swimming pools are just as popular, and this shot of a rooftop swimming pool in Downtown Sacramento comes from Billy’s Market & Deli. While this one is only open to residents of the building, many Sacramento hotels offer outside or rooftop swimming pools. Check our Sacramento hotels website for special rates and events.
