Sacramento Maps and Orientation

(Sacramento, California - CA, USA)

Lying on the northern side of California and within relative proximity to the Napa Valley area, the city of Sacramento is actually the state capital, despite being somewhat dwarfed by the considerably larger cities of Los Angeles, San Diego and San Jose. In fact, Sacramento is only the six-largest city in California, although it does rank as the state's most historic incorporated city.

The city resides at the very point where the American River meets with the Sacramento River, with its deep harbor enjoying access to the San Francisco Bay via the Sacramento River Delta.

For tourists, it is Old Sacramento that holds the greatest appeal, with its cobblestone streets and historical buildings dating from the middle of the 19th century. Highlights here include the Big Four Building, the BF Hastings Building, the Eagle Theater and also the Lady Adams Building.
