Flights to Sacramento International Airport (SMF) land you in the heart of California's Central Valley, a gateway to world-class recreation at Lake Tahoe, entertainment in San Francisco and wine tasting in Napa Valley.
Sacramento is a destination in its own right, however, with plenty of interesting sightseeing opportunities at the State Capitol, recreation along the Sacramento River and events at CalExpo, you won’t find yourself bored. A car is essential for traveling in town and around the region, so pick up a rental car at the airport, and you'll be set to explore.
Two major north-south freeways, Interstate 5 and State Route 99, run through Sacramento, making travel throughout the Central Valley convenient. Interstates 80 and 50 are two important east-west routes, leading to fun excursions to Gold Country, excitement in Reno and hiking, skiing and boating in South Lake Tahoe.
The freeways also make it easy to enjoy all of Sacramento's best sites, from Old Town's historic buildings and Sutter's Fort, to Sacramento Kings' games at Arco Arena, as well as the lively music and art scene in Midtown.
Flights from Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) to SMF usually take a little less than seven hours. The airport is easy to navigate within and exits directly onto Interstate 5 for simple travel around the region.
