Like its London namesake, Tower Bridge in Sacramento is designed to move, allowing tall ships to pass underneath. This fascinating piece of engineering is a vertical lift bridge, where the central portion is winched up, remaining horizontal between the two towers either side. Nearby, you’ll find some of these these top hotels in Sacramento, all bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Embassy Suites by Hilton Sacramento Riverfront Promenade

If it were any closer to Tower Bridge, the Embassy Suites would be on it. This all-suite hotel is ideal for anybody looking to have a self-contained trip, thanks to the mini-fridge, microwave and coffeemaker in the rooms. If you’re feeling like letting somebody else do the food preparation though, head down to the Marketplace Cafe for a free breakfast or snacks during the rest of the day. Upgraded suites have whirlpool baths.
