We enjoyed walking around the few blocks that are Old Sacto, full of gift shops, etc and amazing lolly shops. Not very big but reminds one of the olden days with wooden sidewalks and cobbled streets.

Yes it is touristy, yes it is a man made version of the way things used to be, and yes it seems a bit out of place, but it was fun! Cool shops with different items and candies qthan you see anywhere. A fun, charming way to spend a couple of hours when in Sacramento!

We had been to Old Sacramento before and looked forward to taking our kids there again, but it was kind of disappointing this time. Many if the shops were empty and the open ones seemed rundown with touristy merchandise and rude employees. It wasn't as fun as I remembered.

We didnt even realise this place existed so it was a bonus for us. The western style designed walkways and building facades were fantastic

Old Sacramento features the wooden sidewalks and old building as one might expect. There are also many good places to eat as well as the terrific Railroad Museum. But, the t-shirt shops, candy shops and other tourist trap stores take away from what might otherwise be a very cool place to visit.
