California is a state rich in diversity for travel. There is a plethora of amazing things to see in the big cities as many hidden gems amongst the small towns of the golden state. We've travelled all over our wonderland but had never been to the Capitol. We took a family jaunt via the Amtrak train to Sacramento to visit the California State Railroad Museum. I highly recommend taking Amtrak, particularly for this specific trip. What better way to immerse yourself in a weekend full of trains, then to arrive by one. If you have children (esp boys) that love trains this is a must. The museum has so many great things to offer and who knew that it was located in the historic old town. Must see in person to capture the full experience. Whether a day trip or overnight - add Sacramento to the list.
