Tours / Museums, Sacramento
Just one block up south are five or six Restaurants, Aioli, Creepville, Zacalo, Dragonfly and a coffeehouse called Java City. Two others are out of sight but not out of mind. To the west up 2 blocks stood two other restuarants PF Changs and Mikuni's. There are too many pubs around my apartment to describe. To the east just one block there is the Old Spagetti Factory and a asian restuarant with take out called the Blossom.
The Crocker Art Museum. It's not exactly a secret, but many people overlook the Crocker because it's very nature suggests it would be boring. Wrong! The Crocker is a fantastic place to relax and enjoy the history of Sacramento in a gorgeous old Victorian mansion. My favorite is the ballroom.
