Visited with three generations of family and there is something for everyone. The layout makes it easy to immerse yourself in the displays and if a great way to learn more about how important the railroads helped shape this country.

Come experience aviation and aerospace history in an interactive setting. With an airpark and rotating exhibits, your family can engage with our STEAM activities for all ages and let your imagination soar!
Indoor area has numerous displays relating to aircraft and aerospace including a large section devoted to Leonardo Da Vinci which was very informative. Outdoors are several historic aircraft, mostly military, some of which you can go in to, giving a good perspective of what aviators had to deal with in years past. $15 entry fee seems a bit high, but there are some discounts for seniors, students, military.

We are a 18 hole Championship style golf course located 20 minutes from downtown Sacramento. A par 72 course that is over 6200 from the blue tee boxes. We offer a challenging experience for both the experienced or new golfer. After the round go to our wonderful Bar and Grill for a meal or beverage.
Cherry Island Golf Course is a bit of an oddball layout, and it can be a difficult course to follow for first- time players. On weekends it is very slow. But the course is well maintained and for those who want to try it all and at a reasonable Crist, Cherry Island should make the list.

The Trove has been an institution in Roseville for a number of years, and it's always an interesting place to wander around. It doesn't have exclusively true antiques any more, it's more collectibles, and much of what's offered appears to have been rounded up at yard sales. That doesn't mean it's junk, but the vast majority of what's on offer is not rare or really old. The items that I personally collect (American Art Pottery and various US produced glass) are difficult to find here anymore, and if they do appear they're usually overpriced by quite a bit. I sure wouldn't say this is a bargain hunter's paradise, but there are some unusual things including in the outdoor area where good buys can be found on old lawn furniture and larger items like fence gates and trellis and lawn furniture made of metal. Our last purchase here was a white metal lawn chair that weighs about 100 lbs. and still graces the entry patio at our home. If you want to kill a little time this is a good place to do it.

This 6,794-yard, 18-hole championship course has been designated in the top 75 public golf facilities by Golf Digest.
Hoffman has been a favorite of mine for decades.Until I joined Del Paso CC, I played it regularly. Had occasion to return today due to aeration at my home course. Hoffman is in wonderful shape. Fairways are great and greens excellent- fast and true! What a gem for a county course and for $26 for seniors. Only weakness is its bunkers- dirt not sand. A Marshall patrols for slow play. The routing has always been fun and creative. Just stay out of the trees!
Staff in proshop is pleasant as is the starter.
I just cannot say too much about the condition of the course complete with two fawns and doe on the 8th hole who paid little attention to the golfers. They seem to have chased away the geese that were there on my last visit.

We admired the beauty of this impressive building built 1887-89, of course notable for being a bricks and mortar image of the namesake of Sacramento. After visiting San Antonio, I was prompted to start reading James Michener's book Texas, which depicts the part religion played in the Mexico territory that became the western US. Catholicism was the mandated religion, and brave Methodist preachers' brought evangelicalism.

This 19th-century granite building, modeled after the U.S. Capitol, is home to the California Legislature and houses a public museum and a surrounding garden. We are closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
On our recent visit to Sacramento, we were rather impressed by the California State Capitol building and grounds. We didn't opt for the guided tour; instead we followed the map and guide we got at the information desk. We thoroughly enjoyed peering into the rooms in the "museum" in the basement that re-created the offices circa the 1800s and early 1900s. We were fortunate to be able to catch the transportation-themed temporary exhibit -- though we aren't Californians, we enjoyed tracing the history of the automobile and highways in California. Unfortunately, we visited on a Saturday and the legislature was not in session and not all areas in the building were accessible. Nevertheless, the capitol building is worth the stop. Remember to catch all the portraits of all the governors throughout the building. The state capitol has no admission fee, but be prepared to enter through metal detectors.

Stumbled on this by chance today. New to the area and we were exploring downtown Christmas Eve. Took the hour tour. Well worth it and free! Learned so much. The tour guide, forgot his name, was fantastic. If you’re in he area give it a go. The kids loved it too.
