Old Sacramento is a California Historical Landmark with lots of old buildings that were built around the 1850s. Since our hotel Delta King was nearby, we were able to walk around, shop, and take some photos.
After our cheeseburger from Squeeze Inn, we decided to hit up Yelp again and see what was nearby. We saw that the California’s Governor’s Mansion was only a 5 minute walk, so we left the car where we parked and went on our way.
Good thing we left when we did because we arrived just in time for the last tour of the day.
After the tour, we headed outside to the California Capitol Park. It rained intermittently, and the grounds were very wet, but we had an umbrella and were determined to check everything out.
The first statue we saw was The Hiker, created to commemorate the American soldiers who fought in the Spanish-American War, the Boxer Rebellion and the Filipino-American War.
After our hearty breakfast provided by Delta King, we headed over to the California State Capitol for a free tour. It was a quick five minute drive from Old Sacramento. I think we might have gotten there even faster if it hadn’t been raining outside. Oh, good ‘ole Northern California weather… lol.
After going through the security scan, we entered the lobby area and were greeted by this beautiful carving.
