History buffs won't have to travel far to learn about the history of Sacramento County. The California Military Museum honors Californians who served during peace, wartime and disasters. There are exhibits and displays of weapons, uniforms, flags, medals, documents, and photographs. Listed on 22 shiny black granite panels, the California Vietnam Veterans Memorial contains the names of 5,822 Californians who are missing or dead. The California State Railroad Museum celebrates the history of the railroad with exhibits, displays, a slide show and a short film.
If you're a sports fan, then you'll know that Sacramento is the home of the NBA's Kings and the WNBA's Sacramento Monarchs, both who play at the ARCO Arena. Other sports teams that call Sacramento home include the Sacramento Solons (minor league baseball) and the Sacramento River Cats (AAA minor league baseball).
Along with the Sacramento River, water sports can be enjoyed at Lake Tahoe and Folsom Lake, both easy drives from Sacramento. Skiers and mountain bikers will find Lake Tahoe close enough for day trips.
