A Summer Travel City Guide to Sacramento
'Tis the season for weekend getaways! Today we're joined by Liz Wang, a Northern California photographer, who is sharing her favorite spots for a sunny, summer weekend getaway in Sacramento.
A city away from the city, Sacramento is an ever-evolving, bustling place with its own unique charm. Known as the food capital of California, Sacramento prides itself in its farm-to-fork dining experiences and has even landed on the list of world’s best coffee destinations. This city offers a whole new set of diverse experiences, all within a short drive of each other—and perfectly paired with your most comfy (and multi-purpose) ThirdLove bra!
At Paragary’s, delicious new American and modern plates meet a beautiful, mid-century inspired space. Don’t miss out on their Happy Hour either, which features a prosciutto + fromage blanc avocado toast and wood-fired oven mussels at very affordable prices!
A favorite amongst local creatives, the Mill blends design with coffee in their beautiful wood-paneled space and curated coffee selection.
Nestled in the heart of East Sacramento, Vibe Health Bar is the hub for all things healthy. From colorful juice flights and fresh-pressed juice bottles, to perfectly blended and topped acai bowls, this juice bar is the perfect stop for an afternoon refresher!
A beautiful floral shop nestled in East Sac with curations designed by an award-winning florist. Stop in for flowers you can purchase by the stem, or customize your own bouquet. The shop also has lovely little gifts and trinkets to complement a gifted bouquet!
Ella features fresh and delicious plates and house-curated cocktails in an elegant Downtown Sacramento space. Enjoy a blueberry mojito by their floor-to-ceiling windows, taking in the golden hour views of downtown Sacramento.
A gastropub and artisanal shop mixed in one! Hawks Provisions features coffee and grab-and-go bites, while their restaurant offers a farm-to-fork dining experience with a carefully curated menu.
A modern Japanese twist on classic seafood dishes. Their oyster happy hour is a must, as well as their squid ink spaghettini.
There’s always time to stop and smell the roses. Catch the roses in full bloom at McKinley Rose Garden, or go for a nice walk around one of the city’s best parks.
