Here it is a little more than half way through February already. And, I’m reminded that fellow ActiveRain bloggers, Debe Maxwell and Brian England have presented the challenge titled, “What’s Love Got to Do with It?
This challenge provides us an avenue to provide insight into what makes our city so very special.
In the past while blogging, I’ve mentioned I feel especially fortunate to live in the Greater Sacramento Region. There's so much to see and experience in this city. And, also, within 100 miles or so, we are so close to other amazing sights and experiences.
Within 100 miles to the west of Sacramento, we find San Francisco.
And, we’re just 60 miles from Napa Sonoma Wine Country, to the Northwest.
When we venture east, beautiful Lake Tahoe provides tranquil nature scenes. And, nearly everywhere within these 100 miles from home, remnants of California Gold Country provide signs of its existence.
In the heart of Sacramento, Old Sacramento provides an opportunity to step back to a time when Sacramento was at the epicenter of California Gold Rush activity. The California Railroad Museum is also present.
In addition to our State Capitol and delightful grounds, there is Sutter’s Fort, and, the Crocker Art Museum, as well as many other outstanding venues and sights to see.
One of my favorite places, enjoyed by many Greater Sacramento residents, is the American River Parkway, which stretches 27 miles along the American River, from the confluence of the American and Sacramento Rivers near Old Sacramento, to the town of Folsom.
Whatever, makes you joyful, Sacramento’s place in the sun has something for you!
So put these GPS coordinates on your bucket list – 38.58N, 121.49W. I hope we can meet up when you do!
