Peak Season:
With weather not playing a factor in determining the best time for travellers to take flights to Sacramento, peak season is determined by the local events calendar. As such, the most popular time to visit is August and September when the California State Fair arrives at the California Exposition fairgrounds. This annual event has been taking place for more than 150 years and features exhibits, petting zoos, carnival games and live shows.

Off Season:
The Sacramento winter, or what passes for it with average temperatures in December and January dropping to a not-exactly-freezing 12 degrees Celsius, constitutes the off-season, though the place is far from inhospitable at this time and is a great time to search for cheap flights to Sacramento. Although it may be considered the off season to fly to Sacramento, events such as the free New Year’s Eve celebration is sure to keep visitors entertained. The event lights up the skies above Old Sacramento and features fun activities for the whole family to enjoy such as live music, dinner specials, drinks and an array of entertainment.

City overview

Sacramento has moved on from its past as a pioneer town to a modern metropolis that celebrates its history but prefers its more up-to-date image. This new spruced up reality is in evidence with its City of Trees nickname but, more importantly, is rooted in the number of green spaces scattered about the city.

Sacramento is the capital of California and is among the ten fastest-growing areas in the U.S. Although its population is just less than 500,000, it is part of a greater region that encompasses more than two million inhabitants, though even that makes it merely the fourth largest in the state after Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego.

Within Old Sacramento everything is housed within vintage 19th-century buildings. Little more than a stone’s throw away, the American River cuts through the heart of the city and offers several outdoor leisure activities such as river rafting and fishing.

Regardless of whether it is the great outdoors or the history of the Gold Rush that draws you here, you will not be disappointed.

Despite its California location, Sacramento has a Mediterranean climate with mild winters and hot and dry summers.

Getting around Sacramento

Sacramento is a typical American city with an extensive road and freeway system connecting it to other cities, but unlike many other American cities it also has a widespread network of bicycle and pedestrian paths.
