Sacramento is one of those pseudo home-away-from-home places for me. My dad moved here around the time I graduated from high school and I visited a lot when I was in college. A quick hour flight from LA and it feels a world away with its vast plains and concentrated greenery. A slower pace of life, where people always wear jeans when getting into their trucks. Downtown is accessible and historic, mixed with a cool vibe that can mimic other capital cities across the country. It was a sweet little weekend getaway to visit my new nephew.
