California’s stately capitol building, with its high dome and classic columned facade, is the centerpiece of this urban exploration. Begin at the historic Tower Bridge, travel through the heart of downtown, and complete your tour amid the roses and statuary of Capitol Park. Starting at the evocative Tower Bridge, and culminating in a tour of the varied gardens surrounding California’s state capitol building, this classic urban walk immerses you in the culture and evolution of Sacramento’s historic downtown. Sacramento is the last in a long list of cities that have been designated the state’s capital. Reaching back into the era of Spanish exploration and conquest, San Diego and Monterey both could claim the seat.
