What kind of rental car should I get for Sacramento?
Sacramento knows how to entertain. You could hang out for a good while here and still not see it all. To take in as much as you can in this energetic metropolis, you’ll need a rental car. Keep in mind that driving around the city generally comes with tight streets and even tighter parking spots. Don’t stress though, because a small, economical car can make this less daunting. If you can’t wait to head straight out of the city and enjoy some of the sandy shores that Sacramento is famous for, you’ll want something with more room to move. A mid-size or full-size SUV will make those road trips a dream.

All you have to do is decide what’s the best fit, load up the car, and clock up those miles.
