Your Guide to Sacramento, CA

Located in the heart of Gold Rush country, Sacramento is the perfect jumping-off point for visiting Northern California and Nevada, whether you want to go backpacking in the Sierra Nevada mountains or intend to take a ferry ride across San Francisco Bay. As the state capital of California and a major business hub of the Central Valley, the city is full of popular tourist locations and hidden charms—but you won’t be able to see all of them if you stick to public transit. Explore “NorCal” at your convenience with a cheap car rental in Sacramento.

Soiree in Sacramento

Rental cars in Sacramento will allow you to tour the city without relying on public transportation or paying high taxi fares. Take a tour of Old Sacramento State Historic Park, which is just under a mile away from the downtown area and home to numerous museums. If you’ve ever wanted a taste of the Wild West, “Old Sac” is definitely the place to be; you can even take a ride on the Delta King Riverboat. Continue brushing up on your history with a visit to Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park, just 2 miles out of the downtown area, or pay a visit to the beautiful Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament. If you’re a fan of basketball, you’re in luck; the Sacramento Kings are headquartered at the Sleep Train® Arena downtown. Why not catch a game or two while you’re visiting?

All Around NorCal

The area around Sacramento is ripe for exploration, so don’t hit the breaks in your car rental once you pass the city limits. Twenty-five miles northeast is Folsom Lake, a popular place for watersports, horseback riding, and just about any other outdoor recreational activity you can dream up. Alternatively, plan a day trip to the San Francisco Bay Area. It’s about 90 miles southwest of Sacramento, and you can easily spend an afternoon at Fisherman’s Wharf or the San Francisco Zoo.

Gold Country

The Sacramento Valley’s natural beauty is largely responsible for its name; the Spaniards who discovered it compared their lush, green surroundings to the Holy Sacrament, and the name stuck. For many years, the place that became Sacramento was more of a stopping ground for travelers than a proper city, but in 1848 it struck gold—literally. Gold was discovered in nearby Coloma, and Sacramento, then known as New Helvetica, found itself swamped with hopeful fortune-seekers. The city of Sacramento was founded shortly thereafter, then wrestled the title of state capital away from San Jose and Vallejo.

Between Fog and Sun

You’ve probably heard about Sacramento’s Tule fog, which is a thick, heavy layer of fog that can wipe out visibility. You’ll only need to really deal with this in December and January, when the temperature drops to 50 or below. During the rest of winter you can expect average highs in the 50s through the 60s. There’s very little snow here, though winter is when Sacramento receives most of its 18 inches of yearly rain. Summer temperatures, on the other hand, often reach the 70s and 80s in the summer, and days in the 90s are not unheard of, so make sure your summer car rental is equipped with air conditioning.

The Adventure Begins

You don’t have to strike gold to afford a quality car rental for your Sacramento sojourn. Browse through hundreds of deals on Sacramento car rentals, regardless of the type of vehicle you're looking for, and pick the right one for your trip. Reserve your car rental here through CarRentals.com and get a discount on the best prices today!
