Sacramento, California

The capital of California is a gold mine of history—literally. Gold was first discovered in 1848, thirty miles east of Sacramento, making the early days rather lively as the town hosted miners who had hit it big. They were a boisterous bunch, spending their loot on gambling and dance halls. Today, Sacramento is still a hub of activity, shipping and processing fruits, vegetables, rice, wheat and dairy goods from Central Valley. It still maintains some of that old west vibe with its vintage buildings on the riverfront—home to over 100 restaurants. Fine restaurants can also be found sprinkling the rest of the city, offering American, Italian, Mexican, French and California cuisine.
