Sacramento is the capital city of the U.S. state of California. It is located at the confluence of the Sacramento River and the American River in the northern portion of California's expansive Central Valley.
Sacramento has a Mediterranean climate, characterized by damp to wet, mild winters and hot, dry summers. The wet season is generally October through April, though there may be a day or two of light rainfall in June or September. Snowfall is rare in Sacramento.
The oldest part of the town is called Old Sacramento, which consists of cobbled streets and many historic buildings, several from the 1850s and 1860s. Buildings have been preserved, restored or reconstructed, and the district is now a substantial tourist attraction, with rides on steam-hauled historic trains and paddle steamers.
