With the State Capitol at its core as well as a fascinating gold mining history, Sacramento is an engaging destination for any traveler. The flight into Sacramento International Airport (SMF) takes you to Sacramento's rural North Natomas region, found ten miles from downtown.
Enjoy the quiet ambience that Sacramento offers in comparison to hectic Los Angeles, by grabbing your rental car at the airport and driving a few minutes to North Natomas Regional Park, where you can take a walk around the lake. Or, jump right into the action during your visit by taking in a Sacramento Kings game at Arco Arena, strolling the wooden sidewalks at Old Town or exploring pioneering history at Sutter's Fort.
Roads leaving the airport place you directly onto Interstate 5. Cut over to I-80 west and head to the Napa Valley wine region to try some Zinfandel, or head to urban San Francisco. You can drive east on I-50 for excursions to find the Mother Lode and South Lake Tahoe. Busy downtown and the eclectic midtown area are served by streets on a simple grid pattern.
The flight from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Sacramento International Airport, is quick at just an hour of estimated flight time. Car rentals are centralized, and a gas station is conveniently located at the entrance to the airport.
