FOUR DAYS IN SACRAMENTO
WHERE TO STAY The boutique Citizen Hotel is a fitting nod to the city’s stately roots, decorated with framed political cartoons from The Sacramento Bee. For a more see-and-be-seen spot, head to the Kimpton Sawyer, home to Sac’s first rooftop pool. WHERE TO EAT AND DRINK It’s hard to go wrong with the Italian-influenced seafood dishes at Allora. Or get your brisket-andbeer fix at Urban Roots Brewing & Smokehouse. The Canon has amazing al fresco dining, with designed-for-sharing plates like bulgogi butternut squash. CATCH A BUZZ The Beer Vault, housed in a 1912 bank building, has 68 self-pour taps to sample from. Or revel in the old-school vibe at B Side, a Midtown bar where DJS spin vinyl on the weekend. Want vino? You can choose from 24 sparkling wines served by the glass at Fizz Champagne & Bubbles Bar. DON’T LEAVE WITHOUT ...strolling around Old Sac, which offers a glimpse into the city’s Gold Rush–era riverfront district... savoring Milk Money’s absurdly delicious doughnuts with cheeky names like Bananas & Pajamas.
