California's capital possesses a rich heritage and an appealing all-American gentility. This flat site at the confluence of the Sacramento and American rivers was urbanized with a grid of straight, tree-lined streets that remind many visitors of the Midwest. Residents, who seem indifferent to the fads of California's trendy hotspots, reinforce this impression. Yet the city has an aura of a modern metropolis, with many contemporary cultural attractions to complement the vestiages of its pioneer past.
