20 Things To Do In Sacramento California

How about sharing some of the highlights of the area you live in. I live near Sacramento California. I found this video of some of the fun things to do in Sacramento. However, they left off my favorites. I love the bike trails along the river and I love kayaking or paddle boarding on Lake Natoma. 

Happy creating!

Sadly for me, the area that I live in is quiet... really really quiet Laughing out loud

Apparently 1,600 people live here, but I don't think I've ever seen more than 10!

Oh, I don’t know where to start! Stockholm is a small town, so you might think there isn’t a lot to see. It also is an old town, founded in 1252, but settled 8000 years ago (stone age). This means it has lots of history, and much of it is still visible.

The Wasa battleship was built in 1628 and sank 1,300 meters into its maiden voyage due to having too many cannons (72 of them). It was rediscovered in the 1950s and salvaged. It is now one of Sweden’s most visited and well-known museums.

The town of Stockholm is worth its own walks or rides just for its beauty and spectacular views. Since Stockholm was built on 14 islands there is water everywhere, and to the east, you have the archipelago and the Baltic Sea, and to the west, there is lake Mälaren, Sweden’s third-largest lake. Make sure to visit the old town.

Stockholm archipelago is worth several trips, especially if you visit in summer. There are guided boat tours, regular ferries, and even bridges or car ferries to take you to many of the (24,000) islands.

I live in a northern Stockholm suburb named Täby. I don't have a lot worth seeing, but one thing I like about it is it’s Viking presence. Nowhere in the world are there more rune stones and rune engraved rock surfaces than in Täby. If you go by car, you can circle lake Vallentunasjön and see about twenty of them in a 25-kilometer ride. Go on a sunny day and bring a picknick basket.

#2 I would second visiting some of the many islands that make up Stockholm. I particularly liked Vaxholm when I went there!
