Sacramento travel tips

1) Find some rare unopened popular releases at Kicksville Vinyl & Vintage in Sacramento

There are two reasons for you to visit the Kicksville Vinyl & Vintage store at 931 T Street in Sacramento. The first reason is the cosy atmosphere in this small shop, where you may find some used vintage records and unopened popular releases at affordable prices. And the second reason is the staff's devotion to what they do. If you need something really special but can not find it at the store, they will point you to a competitor in the area or try to order it for you via the Internet.

2) Go down under the city to know about Sacramento more

You can not say you know Sacramento well without going down the underground of the city. Go to 101 I Street and pay $22 for a tour. See what life was like 150 years ago. You will go below historic buildings and explore excavated foundations, enclosed pathways and old artefacts. The guides lead the excursion very excitedly!

3) Are there any good outdoor public events in Sacramento?

If you like music, there are so many places to visit when it's warm in Sacramento. For example, check out the local concerts at Pops in the Park in East Sacramento, Friday Night Concerts in the Park in Downtown Sacramento, or Live on the Boulevard in El Dorado Hills.
