Sacramento has a great architecutral history, they survived most of the Great Quake of 1906, which leveled San Francisco. They were also one of the first major cities on the West coast, with the Sacramento River Steamboat travel making it possible to get inland as well as a major stop of the West Coast Railroad.
Their history is still supported by Sacramento Heritage, a local group which supports the architectural buildings of this State Capital and city by the river. they offer walking tours every month for locals as well as visitors to get to know the city better. www. sacramentoheritage.com.
They have a special tour coming up in February just before that "special day." It begins at teh Midtown Bakery in midtown Sacramento and explores the architecture of the midtwon area as well as at least four bakeries with desserts to be eaten by the participants.
The cost is $30 dollars per person and a great way to spend a day with someone sweet. It will be Sunday at 12 noon, Feb 9, 2013. (916) 972-0131 for more information about this tour of desserts.
