When the Gold Rush era took California by the storm, Sacramento became a hotspot for settlement thanks to its convenient location. Unfortunately, in order to adapt to the constant issue of flooding, Sacramento had to raise the street levels and buildings during the 1860s and 1870s. Which means in present day, the original streets that were once “first floors” for the city still lie right beneath the beloved Old Sacramento. This guided tour allows visitors to rummage through the unseen streets and spaces; and even comes with a special edition “After Hours” tour, featuring some explicit details about the city’s darkest years.
