Sacramento travel tips

1) Drink beers at the Dive Bar, where the mermaids and mermen swim around under feet

Located at 1016 K Street in Sacramento, the Dive Bar is probably the most unusual in America. Above the bar, there is a tank that holds 7,500 gallons of water, and mermaids and mermen swim around for your pleasure. Order a drink and enjoy this oddity.

2) Go ice skating in Sacramento, one of the locals' favourite activities

Despite the quite warm climate, Sacramento locals love ice-skating. Join them any time of the year. When it is cold, there is the great Westfield Downtown Plaza Ice Rink outdoors. When it is summer, Skatetown Roseville welcomes you to skate (or learn to skate). It costs $10-13 on average.

3) What non-touristy things can I do in Sacramento?

A non-touristy and a bit terrifying thing is a trip to the Spirit of Sacramento. Once a US Army boat, it also belonged to John Wayne (he even used it in the 1955 movie Blood Alley). Now, it stands on the ground after a fire. If you come here in the evening, you may take some spooky photos.
