Special ProgramsCapitol WalkDocuments

The CVA is not a club, and as such it does not normally sponsor a walk or bike tour. There are special cases however, especially when an event is considered unique.


The Capitol Walk

GOVERNOR

This is the old Governor's Mansion that you will see on the walk. Ronald and Nancy Reagan refused to live there when he was Governor because it was "a firetrap."

The walk is daily, dawn to dusk. It is is mostly on sidewalks through historic downtown Sacramento. The route goes through historic "Old Sac" with its many shops and museums. It goes through the Capitol Building and passes Sutter's Fort, the old Governors House and many more. Most sites are open 10 AM - 5 PM. Dogs are not allowed in the Capitol Building, Sutter's Fort, Governors House or museums. Carry water in hot weather. There are accommodating establishments along the route, the first at the AMTRAC Station. The 6 km route includes the above mentioned places except Sutter's Fort.
