Typical flight times are 7 to 8 hours to Sacramento International Airport (SMF), and you can reach your destination hotel in Sacramento by traveling along Interstate-5, Highway 99 or the Garden Highway.
Sacramento is near the sites where the legendary Gold Rush of the 19th century occurred out west, and many of those places, like Sutters Creek, are now tourist attractions. The State Capitol building is located in Sacramento, and historic Old Sacramento will be of interest to anyone who appreciates history.
For sheer natural beauty, try the Calaveras Big Trees State Park, home to giant sequoia trees, and another natural wonder is Moaning Cavern, which has a cavern that is so big, it could contain the Statue of Liberty. The Shenandoah Valley is world-famous for its high quality wine production, especially its fruity Zinfandels.
During the May through September months, Sacramento temperatures average in the 80s and 90s, but for most of the rest of the year, average temperatures are in the 50s, 60s and 70s. There is little precipitation in Sacramento, so you can leave the umbrella at home, unless you’re visiting in January, February or March, when an occasional shower is possible.
