This moderately fast paced urban hike explores some of midtown/downtown Sacramento’s streets and history featuring Sutter’s Fort, Capitol Park, and Chicago Style Pizza for those interested in staying for dinner.
We begin this urban hike in front of the Chicago Fire Pizza Restaurant in downtown Sacramento on J Street between 24th and 25th Streets. Once our crowd meets critical mass (or it's 11 minutes after the hour) we will embark on our urban adventure.
Traveling along the urban walkways we head toward Sutter’s Fort. Soon we arrive at the fort’s duck ponds and the Native American Museum. Circling the fort our band of marauders rendezvous at the gates of the fort. From the fort gates we trot along Capitol Mall encountering Sacramento's Handle District and its many eateries and sidewalk cafes. As we approach Capitol Mall we pass through the Capitol Area East End Complex and its municipal art displays. Ultimately we reach Capitol Park.
Ambling about Capital Park we enjoy the flora and fauna. We then wander back through the urban walkways and return to Chicago Fire for some good eats and cheer. Cheers!
There is street parking in the vicinity of Chicago Fire. Check out the parking along 25th street between J and K Streets. After the urban expedition, we'll organize for dinner and drinks at Chicago Fire Restaurant on J Street between 24th and 25th Streets.
