With our summer coming to a close and the start of school (and First Grade for Rex!) looming in a few weeks, Grizz and I have been researching places for one last family getaway trip. One of the destinations that popped up on our radar as we planned our final summer “hurrah” is Northern California’s capital and often overlooked city to visit – Sacramento! I have to admit even we forget the thriving family friendly River City is just a short 2 hour drive from San Francisco.
After a little research we found it to not only be a stones throw from us but also filled with kid-family attractions, museums, playgrounds, outdoor festivals all rich in culture. Who would have thought right?
Trekaroo, a one-stop site for everything related to traveling with a young family proved to be an invaluable resource of great tips and inside information during our reasearch There is a wealth of useful tips for traveling with kids, a place to post a travel question and get real answers from other parents and you can even purchase gear and book hotels directly from their site. If you’re traveling anywhere any time, I recommend checking them out for great information all geared towards traveling as a family.
So how would you like to explore the beautiful city of Sacramento, family style? You would be shacking up at the gorgeous Residence Inn at Capitol Park located in the heart of downtown Sacramento!
