Sacramento is the capital of the aptly nicknamed Golden State, California. With a rich history dating back to the Gold Rush at Sutter’s mill, a warm, sunny climate, and proximity to the Sacramento and American Rivers, the city has plenty to offer natives and visitors alike. Whether you want to soak up fresh air and sunshine with that special someone or impress her with a romantic, candlelit dinner for two, Sacramento is the place to be.
Meander down the cobblestone streets of historic Old Sacramento hand in hand with your date. Browse through the shops and buy sweets for your sweet at one of the old time candy shops where childhood favorites are sold by the pound. If your feet tire of walking, snuggle together and experience the charm of Old Sacramento from a romantic horse drawn carriage. When you’ve finished exploring, continue your date with dinner aboard the Delta King riverboat. The Delta King Bar and Grill offers the experience of outdoor dining right on the river. Live music and dancing are also available Thursday through Sunday nights.
Sacramento River Train
Reserve your spot aboard the Sacramento River Train. A Sunset Dinner begins at 2:30 and includes a three to four hour train ride, a three course meal and live entertainment. Purchase a golden ticket for that special someone and receive a complimentary bottle of champagne or wine and a rose for the lady. After dinner, accompany your date to the club car where you can dance the night away to live music while cruising through Sacramento. Or take the opportunity to cuddle up with your sweetheart in a quiet spot and enjoy the passing scenery and a beautiful sunset.
William Land Park and Golf Course
Located east of the Sacramento River, William Land Park and Golf Course is an ideal place to take your date for fresh air and relaxation. Pack a picnic lunch and your fishing poles before heading to the ponds at William Land Park. The quiet, peaceful atmosphere is perfect for comfortable conversation and getting to know each other better. If you are looking for a more active outdoor experience, you can book tee time at the nearby William Land Golf Course. After a little friendly competition on the green, treat your date to lunch at Mulligan’s Restaurant, where veranda seating offers a view of the course you conquered together.
Biba Ristorante Italiano
Pamper your date with a romantic dinner for two at the Biba Ristorante Italiano, located just a few minutes from the state Capitol Building. Delicious Italian dishes created with the freshest ingredients and served in an elegant setting are sure to make a lasting impression. Call ahead to make a reservation and contact a local florist to arrange for delivery of a beautiful rose bouquet to your table. Flowers and candlelight set the mood for love and live piano music provides the perfect finishing touch to a truly romantic experience.
