The collection includes hot rods, muscle cars and race cars spanning several decades. Guests can learn the history behind the cars and have the option of booking a guided tour.
The Subtile Sculpture was created by Frederico Diaz and placed along the Sacramento River in 2017. The 26 ft. long and 14 ft. high sculpture was installed to bring art to low-income neighborhoods. It features thousands of steel discs that move with the wind making the piece look like anything from a group of trees to a giant disco ball.
Old Sacramento State Historic Park
Old Sacramento is just a hop, skip and jump from West Sacramento and it makes for a great way to spend the day. More than just a historic part, it’s actually a State Historic Park complete with beautiful architecture and a vibe that takes you back to the days of the California Gold Rush.
