Mar 19, 2013 - Sacramento by Charter Bus
Sacramento is the sixth largest out of California’s 478 cities and towns with more than 463,000 people, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. This central California city is best known for being the state capital of California. Naturally, it features charter bus visitor attractions that deal with California’s government and history. Charter bus visitors can also learn about famous people from the state, including athletes and actors, and a great way of getting to Sacramento from Los Angeles is with a bus, charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus
chartered from Charter Bus Los Angeles.
The California Museum celebrates the state’s diversity. Charter bus visitors can view ongoing exhibits that include displays about women’s achievements, the history of Japanese Americans during World War II and the jobs that dogs do. The California Hall of Fame, meanwhile, inducts 12 or 13 people each year who have made an impact in their field. The members, who must have lived in the state at some point, include Amelia Earhart, George Lucas, Jack Nicholson, Danielle Steele, Tiger Woods and Chuck Yeager. The exhibits on display include artifacts and memorabilia about each inductee. The museum also features rotating exhibits such as art collections and photographs of different cultures in California.
The state’s politicians convene at the California State Capitol to make laws. Charter bus visitors can tour the building and learn how the California government operates. The capitol contains artifacts and artwork as well as a governor’s portrait gallery, paintings of California geography and people, large murals of the state’s history and 50 historic flags from California units in World War I, the Spanish American War and the Civil War. Charter bus visitors can also visit the Assembly Gallery and the Senate Gallery to observe the Assembly Members and Senators debate state legislation.
Located a short charter bus ride away in the historic district of Old Sacramento, the California State Railroad Museum is one of the largest railroad museums in the country. The complex showcases "lavishly restored trains," full-size railroad equipment, and walk-through interpretive exhibits of stock cars such as a 1930s Santa Fe dining car. Other exhibits include photo documentaries featuring the railroads' role in California cultural experiences.
Dignitaries from all over the world come to the Leland Stanford Mansion State Historic Park. The governor, first lady and state politicians use the mansion as the official center for receptions and protocol meetings.
