Sacramento

Sacramento is where trips into the Central Valley, the Sacramento/San Joaquin River Delta and the Sierra Nevada foothills begin. Sacramento's main attraction for DogTrekkers is the 32-mile American River Parkway, a shady greenbelt cradling a dog-friendly trail that stretches from the Old Sacramento historic district to the Folsom Lake State Recreation Area. Throughout Sacramento are parks, picnic areas, river beaches and countless other places where you and your dog can stretch your legs.

The San Joaquin-Sacramento River Delta is a boater’s paradise that in places feels like anther world. But you don’t need a boat to explore this rich agricultural region marked with old-time lift bridges, small towns and miles of levees that in the id-1800s transformed a once trackless wetland into 55 agricultural islands that still produce food for Northern California (pears and wine grapes are the main crops). Numerous winery tasting rooms have cropped up over the past decade on both sides of the river, all of them dog-friendly. more »

Sacramento might be situated smack in the middle of the Central Valley, but its location on the Sacramento and American rivers made it a central player in the 1849 Gold Rush, when a waterfront boomtown (now preserved as Old Sacramento) sported saloons aplenty catering to thirsty prospectors headed to and from the Mother Lode. more »

From the downtown core to the farthest reaches of suburbia, Sacramento abounds with dog-friendly places to stay. If downtown is your chosen destination, the new Kimpton Sawyer might be just your ticket. It’s smack in the heart of the developing DoCo (Downtown Commons) district surrounding Golden 1 Center, offering out-the-door access to numerous restaurants with dog-friendly patios (plus lots of buzz on event nights). As at all Kimpton hotels, dogs are welcome at no extra charge. more »

Sacramento, California’s “City of Trees,” takes great pride in its shady parks. William Land Park, just south of downtown, is its largest urban oasis. The 166-acre preserve is home to a zoo, a golf course, an amusement park, duck ponds, picnic grounds and miles of canine-friendly walking paths. Among many other events, it hosts the annual Doggy Dash and Bark in the Park Festival (April 27 this year) to benefit the Sacramento SPCAmore »
