Excellent food and extensive wine list. It is, actually, good for lunch, dinner and drinks. We've seen tourists in there in casual clothes as well as late dinner cocktail clothes.

The Sacramento River Train rides the rails between West Sacramento and Woodland. They have a really interesting menu of train experiences such as Mother's Day rides, beer rides, The Great Train Robbery and even a Zombie Train. We highly recommend any of the rides.

Parks & Nature

In 1839 a Swiss immigrant named John Sutter received a land grant in the Sacramento Valley from the Mexican government. He used the land to create a flourishing agricultural empire and named it New Helvetia (New Switzerland.) This empire established Sacramento’s earliest settlement and the first non-Indian settlement in California’s Central Valley. In 1847 Sutter sent aid to the Donner Party, a group of immigrants trapped in a winter storm in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Word spread and Sutter became known for his hospitality and for providing temporary refuge to travelers. This reputation made New Helvetia the destination for early immigrants to California. Less than a decade after they were established, Sutter’s properties were overrun by gold seekers and the fort is all that remains of New Helvetia. It has been restored to its former state based on an 1847 map published in Darmstadt, Germany and is open daily. For general Sutter's Fort information please call (916) 445-4422.

The Sacramento Zoo is a great place to take your kids for an afternoon exploring a large variety of wildlife. In 1927, “the little Zoo in the park,” was born. The William Land Park Zoo opened its gates on June 2nd, 1927 as the City of Sacramento brought together an assortment of animals from various local parks. At that time, the 4.2-acre Zoo was home to a collection of 40 animals that included monkeys, raccoons, birds, deer and various other small animals. The Small Wonders of Africa exhibit opened in 2014 to great applause. The dynamic multi-species exhibit increased the footprint of the older small mammal house and included an Aardvark, Red-billed Hornbills, Wolf’s Guenon, Crested Guineafowl, Fennec Foxes and a colony of Straw-colored Fruit Bats. The Zoo also celebrated the birth of a trio of African Lion cubs. The role of zoos has changed dramatically over the past several decades. The focus has shifted from showcasing as many animals as possible, to creating a recreational experience that also focuses on the importance of providing an educational premise for which zoos exist. Zoos of today have three very distinct purposes – education, conservation, and recreation. The Sacramento Zoo inspires appreciation, respect and a connection with wildlife and nature through education, recreation and conservation.
