Old Sacramento and Waterfront Promenade

Old Sacramento and Waterfront Promenade Professional Review and Guide

"A boardwalk and promenade follow the waterfront of the Sacramento River, beginning among the bustling shops and restaurants of historic Old Sacramento, heading down past the eastern foot of the Tower Bridge, and following a scenic promenade to the edge of downtown.

Culture and history are the focal points of this short urban route, with great views of fishing and pleasure boats on the Sacramento River adding to the appeal. Sandwiched between the river and a working rail line in the heart of the capital city, the trail serves up restaurants, riverboat rides, tattoo parlors, candy shops, a history lesson, and the chance to see an old-time locomotive cruising on a historic set of tracks."
