Located within the downtown district, Holiday Inn Express Sacramento Convention Center opens up numerous opportunities for easy access to the heart of old Sacramento and all of the Sacramento tourist attractions, putting you within minutes of the ARCO Arena, Raley's Field, the Memorial Auditorium, and the site of the Cal Expo State Fair. Some of the highlight attractions of the Sacramento area are:
Governor's Mansion State Historic Park
Originally built by a hardware merchant in 1877, the mansion became California's Executive Mansion in 1903 and provides a stunning example of Second Empire-Italianate architecture. The interior design reflects a mixture of tastes, ranging from the original Victorian builder through all the various governors and first ladies who lived there.
A one-of-a-kind theatrical experience - Sacramento's nationally-recognized theatre-in-the-round produces musical theatre at the new Wells Fargo Pavilion in July and August. Filled with the best of live theater and music, Music Circus provides an unforgettable immersive taste of the arts.
Old Town Sacramento
Lose yourself in the rich history of Gold Rush-era Sacramento. An eclectic mix of museums, entertainment, restaurants, the Old Town provides plenty of great places to visit - such as the National Registered Landmark and 28-acre State Historic Park on the river in downtown Sacramento.
Sutter's Fort State Historic Park
Capture the spirit of 19th Century California when you visit the Sutter's Fort State Park. Established in 1839 and restored to its 1846 appearance, the park exhibits the lifestyle of the era. Blacksmith's forges, cooperage, even a jail - the Sutter's Fort State Park is a living lesson in history, and is situated only a mile away from the hotel. Demonstrations and reenactments in costume are staged daily Memorial Day to Labor Day.
