Eagle Theatre in Sacramento, California

Straight A Tours is in Sacramento, CA this week, at the Student & Youth Travel Association convention (SYTA). While tour operators gather to learn what’s new and exciting in the student group travel industry, there are plenty of historic sites to see such as Old Sacramento, where California’s first theater, the Eagle, was built in 1849. Paddlewheeler boats line the waterfront waiting to take you on a cruise. Visit the California State Railroad Museum, the California State Capitol, the Sacramento Zoo, Fairytale Town, the Towe Auto Museum, a reconstruction of Sutter’s Fort and the Crocker Art Museum — the oldest public art museum west of the Mississippi River. In fact, Sacramento has an astonishing 26 museums.

There are also several major theater venues in town, and one of the largest collection of community theaters in the state. Listen to classical music at the Sacramento Philharmonic Orchestra, the Sacramento Choral Society & Orchestra, the Sacramento Youth Symphony, the Sacramento Master Singers, the Sacramento Children’s Chorus, and the Camellia Symphony. Whether you’re here for work or play, there’s something for everyone in vibrant Sacramento.
