Since Sacramento is conveniently located just 16 miles north of Roseville, it’s only a short drive away and perfect for exploring if you’re in the mood to get some fresh air and exercise. With over 250 days of sunshine every year, Sacramento has a little bit of everything - from hiking and bicycling to whitewater rafting. It’s also right around the corner from Sierra Nevada and popular ski resorts.

Sacramento boasts over 30 miles of paved bike trails along the scenic American River Parkway. You can hop on and hop off at any point or even rent a bike in Old Sacramento. The many Sacramento parks are a perfect refuge from the city’s bustle. Consider planning a shady picnic on a hot summer’s day! McKinley Park, Capitol Park, and Southside Park are notable, each featuring distinct features like playgrounds, ponds, basketball courts, and breathtaking skyline views.

If watersports are more of your style, you can spend a day floating lazily down the American River from Folsom to Sacramento, stopping at some of the islands or riverbank beaches while you go. Parks with river access include Discovery Park and Sutter’s Landing. You can also take a boat from the Sacramento River and sail beneath the Tower Bridge. 

If you’re not in the mood for heavy exercise, strolling through the city is always an option. Take in the historical sights, visit the art galleries, or sample delicious meals at one of the acclaimed outdoor cafes.
