Old Sacramento is both a retail district and a State Historic Park. As its name might suggest, it's located in Sacramento, directly across the river from West Sacramento. It can a great place to pick as a day trip if you have visitors that you are looking to entertain. There is the California State Railroad Museum, the Gold Rush History Center and a wide variety of shopping and dining destinations. Among the retailers are old-fashioned candy stores such as Sacramento Candy Co. and Candy Heaven, Evangeline's novelty store, Candle Land, and Capital Ink Tattoo and Piercing. Eateries include the Pilothouse Restaurant, Joe's Crab Shack, Cantina del Rio, and Annabelle's. Old Town is home to Laughs Unlimited and Suspects Dinner Theatre. Horse-drawn carriage rides are an attraction unique to this historic NorCal sector. Special annual events include the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee, The Sacramento Blues Festival, Gold Rush Days, and the Pacific Rim Street Festival.
