What County is Sacramento?
Sacramento is the capital of California and not major cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles or San Diego. In its capital function, it reminds something of Bonn, although not on the Rhine, but with nice, clear Old Town, everything a bit more comfortable, than you could expect from the administrative center of the brooding California. The city was founded in 1848 by the Swiss John Sutter from Liestal. Here began the Californian gold rush. Since 1854, the city has been the capital of the state of California. In and around Sacramento there are numerous remains from the Godrausch period, which allowed California to first become American.
In this respect, Sacramento is also a typically American small city. Auburn was founded around 1848 by French gold miners. The Old Town is very well preserved. Folsom was one of the numerous gold mining towns. It became known by the prison established in 1880. In 1956, the Folsom Dam was flooded and Folsom Lake became a popular recreation area of the Bay Area. Today, Folsom is one of the most prosperous places in the United States.
The original name of Placerville was Hangtown, because during the gold rush the city occupied a top position in execution by hanging. Lake Tahoe, the eastern part of which is already located in Nevada, is one of the most popular holiday areas of the Californians. In Winter, the area is very snow-proof, while in summer, the warm but not hot area serves the summer resort. In the surrounding Gergen you will find numerous traces of the Gold Rush. The ride on the I 80 from the border of Navada westwards towards Sacramento is one of the most scenic motorway routes in the USA.
