Since its founding in 1849, Sacramento has grown into a cosmopolitan state capital while retaining its Gold Rush flavor. Downtown Sacramento serves as the heart of the region and boasts more than 150 restaurants, nightclubs and other amenities that keep the locals and visitors busy. Sacramento is also home to some of the best physically-minded terrain in the county - with the 32 miles of the American River bike trail leading the way. The region boasts more than 200 wineries, a multitude of beautiful golf courses with affordable green fees, more than 25 thought-provoking museums, and professional sports from the Pacific Coast League Champions the Sacramento Rivercats, the WNBA's Sacramento Monarchs and the NBA's Sacramento Kings. In addition to Sacramento's own thriving amenities, the city is located in the center of northern California-with Lake Tahoe, the Napa Valley and San Francisco all located within a short driving distance.

"We're thrilled to have the AMGEN Tour of California return to Sacramento. The community embraced its first experience with this great event last year, turning out by the thousands to watch the cyclists race through the streets of downtown Sacramento. It's a great showcase for our city."
- Mayor Heather Fargo
