What to Do
This ain’t no theme park. This here is the real deal. Registered as a national historic landmark, The Waterfront overflows with invigorating things to see and do. Wild museums, riverboat rides, historic railroads excursions, horse carriage, and cobblestone…it’s one non-stop adventure after another just waiting to unfold.
We have partnered with the California Native Plant Society to help us beautify the Old Sacramento Waterfront District, and would like you to take part in this fun and interactive journey.
Join in on this fun and informational walk and learn about the different types of plants that are native to our area and a little bit of history as to why.
Discover a wild collection of unusual, locally-owned shops revealing truly novel gifts, one-of-a-kind collectibles, and of course, more than enough upscale accessories and apparel for the hard-to-please. When asked, “Where in the world did you find that?” The answer, on the Waterfront, of course.
If it’s the Luck of the Irish you’re looking for, come find it at Old Sacramento Waterfront in March! An Old Sacramento tradition that offers a day of a parade, live musical entertainment, outdoor beer gardens and a chance to find Leprechauns hiding throughout the charming historic district. Come and join us for this all-day event and make your St. Patrick’s Day one to remember!
