My hometown may not have much for tourist but we're the capital of California yo Tree outside if DeVeres #treetrove Welcome to the California State Fair☀️ The team and I just reached Sacramento, CA which is where nationals will be held this year. Looking forward to getting on the water in the morning! This place had like 4 different types of ferris wheels! I've only ever seen a big one for adults and a small one for kids, not these awesome thrill ride wheels! The swings were super popular. Lots of learning opportunities and animals for kids. And of course amazing food.
To avoid some of the high costs of the state fair, find parking in town nearby and walk in and get the unlimited rides wristband. Pretty sure lockers are also available to store a small cooler of food too.
