It’s always fun to read what folks have to say about Sacramento who do not live here.
From a review at fodors.com:
My first impression riding in was mixed and the city seemed fairly empty, there were not nearly as many folks walking around as I thought there would be in a city of that size at that time of day.
I’ve noticed this myself. Sure, traffic is a mess, but once people get to their homes they don’t seem to hit the streets, huh? Well, if you don’t have a home you do…
Leaving the restaurant, the sun was beginning to set, and I was surprised to see that most of the shops had already closed. Retracing my steps to the hotel was kind of spooky, There were very few people on the streets and many of those that I saw seemed to be vagrants. I was hit up for change at least half dozen times before reaching the hotel.
The author continues with a few great reviews of restaurants (especially Aioli) and services, so give it a read and tell us what you think.
Is Sacramento a tourist destination? Can it be?
