The capital city of California, Sacramento is the government and legal hub for the state. Boasting over 500,000 citizens, the city sits in Northern California on the Sacramento River, its namesake. The city prides itself in its diversity and was even named the most diverse city in America, in 2002 by the civil rights study conducted by Harvard University. Here you will find the best kind of melting pot of cultural diversity in the state, being the capital of California and the center of government.
Cannabis is legal, but the city does not have a very lax approach to public consumption (so just smoke in private) and recently Sacramento just approved the large-scale cultivation of medical marijuana. Now that recreational cannabis is legal in California, you can expect a ton of incredible marijuana and infused products to come out of Sacramento!
There is no shortage of activities in Sacramento with one of the biggest being The Sacramento Kings, a storied but troubled NBA franchise. Sacramento is also home to the Crocker Art Museum, the largest art museum west of the Mississippi. With the convergence of The America River and the Sacramento River and 5,000 acres of public park space, there are plenty of outdoors activities to be had year round. People are frequently enjoying a quiet bike ride, a peaceful stroll in anyone of the parks, or an exciting boat ride through the city.
With a major airport bringing in close to ten million passengers through in 2015, Sacramento is a hub for diplomatic travel and also tourism from around the world, this will have a major economic impact with the vote on Amendment 64 (this is the bill to legalize recreational cannabis in California).
