Winter in Sacramento is nothing if not atmospheric, and a short walk on a gauzy morning along our American River Parkway will make the point. Prime season for ground fog—which Sacramentans term “tule fog” after the reeds that grow in Central Valley wetlands—is December through February. Not every morning is foggy, but we’ve come to appreciate those that are.
Sacramento has more coffeehouses than anywhere south of Seattle…or maybe Portland. Temple Coffee gets its beans from around the globe. The Alley, on a downtown side street, is a local favorite. Fluid Espresso, highly regarded for its house-baked goods, also serves empanadas and burritos.
The Sacramento Ballet's most popular presentation, Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker," has pleased hundreds of thousands of attendees. The holiday tradition dances across the Community Center Theatre stage Dec. 6–21.
What better for a cold, cloudy day than a visit to an independent bookstore? Time Tested Books, The Book Collector, Beers Books and The Avid Reader, all in the downtown area, have storied histories and inspired inventories.
Whether your interests lean toward art, railroads, aviation, automobiles, history, science, nature or medicine, the Sacramento area has a museum for you—more than 20 of them, in fact.

Sacramentans are brunchers, and the choices are many and varied. Fox & Goose offers a taste of England with choices like bangers and crumpets, while Bacon and Butter says it all with dishes like the Kitchen Sink, a calorific fave. Tower Café, so popular you’ll have to wait in line, features an internationally inspired brunch menu.
Gold is what put Sacramento on the map, and if you're looking for a bit of Gold Rush history, a visit to Sutter's Fort just may be the ticket. This restoration of city founder John Sutter's original outpost, built in 1839, achieved notoriety for sending aid to the beleaguered Donner Party. Check the website for a schedule of living-history days.
Sacramento's oldest neighborhood, Oak Park, dates to 1887 and offers a couple of winter warmer-uppers. Drop in to Old Soul at 40 Acres for a hot cup of java and browse the shelves at Underground Books. For some grub to heat up the tummy, Original Po Boys dishes up spicy Cajun favorites.
