Old Sacramento in the cool morning

This time of year marks the time of year in Sacramento where it’s too hot to do much of anything outdoors unless it’s bright and early in the morning. So, baby bulldog and I headed for Old Sacramento to watch the old steam trains. We had a nice little walk through old town enjoying the architecture and trains and fresh air. While old town is totally commercial and touristy I’ve been visiting my entire life and never get tired of it unless it’s too crowded. I look forward to taking my son here many more times over the years to explore Sacramento history and to just travel back in time for a few hours at a time.

  1. I remember Old Sac from before it was renovated and became touristy, when the topless joints still reigned supreme, before I-5 was pushed through. A mark of coming of age among boys in Placerville was to pack into a car, drive down 50 when it was still a tow-way windy road, and pay a visit to the Alameda Follies. 🙂 –Curt
