With Sutter's Fort, the State Capitol, Sacramento River Delta and the Sacramento Kings' Arco Arena just minutes from Sacramento International Airport (SMF), the city offers plenty of entertainment, history and business opportunities. Plus, SMF is an easy-to-navigate airport with two efficient terminals, nearby parking, and a centralized rental car center that makes it easy to pick up a very-necessary rental car. As a fun destination in its own right and a gateway to the Bay Area, South Lake Tahoe and the Napa Valley, Sacramento is the ultimate starting point for any Northern California tour.
Sacramento is large, but its many freeways and grid-like downtown and Midtown streets ensure easy travel. The airport is bordered on the east by State Route 99, and to the south by Interstate 5. Both lead to the heart of Sacramento, where visitors can enjoy the State Capitol's Museum, the Convention Center's theatrical performances and a vibrant art, music and food scene in Midtown with restaurants like The Waterboy. River cruises, pioneer-era buildings, underground tours and the State Railroad Museum are just blocks from the Capitol in the city's Old Town.
The flight from Seattle to SMF is a quick hour and 45 minutes. That short flight leaves visitors plenty of time to explore the airport's fanciful public art, locally run cafes and wine tasting bars.
