Your Guide to Sacramento, California - Sacramento, California is the state capital and is known as the Almond Capital of the World. As of 2003, the population was estimated at 445,335.  Sacramento is located in Sacramento County and sits in the Sacramento Valley.  In 2002, Sacramento was ranked as number 14 of the Best Places to Live and Work in America, as listed on BestJobsUsa.com.


The city got its name from the Spanish term for "holy sacrament."  Sacramento was founded in 1839 and is the oldest incorporated city in California.  It was built around Sutter's Fort.  This is where the western terminus for the transcontinental telegraph was located as well.


Sacramento has played a significant part in California history, especially the Gold Rush.  In 1839, a man named John Sutter founded the city and built a cattle ranch and trading center.  When gold was discovered in 1848 at a sawmill, Sutter's workers quit working for him to look for gold.  The town of Sacramento became the main area of focus for miners.  Tourists to the area can visit Old Sacramento and the California State Railroad Museum to relive some of the history of the Gold Rush.


Famous Movies and Residents


Two well-known movies were filmed in Sacramento - American Beauty and Phenomenon.  Some famous residents of the area include Molly Ringwald, actress; Sam Elliott, actor; Joan Didion, writer.


Tourism in Sacramento


Sacramento offers a variety of recreation that includes a ballet, orchestra, parks, bike trails and more.  One can step back in time by visiting Sutter's Fort, where Sacramento was started.  It was built in 1840 by the town's founder John Sutter and housed a small town inside its thick walls.  A guided tour is available at Sutter's Fort where audio speakers inform visitors of its history and structure at every stop.  Sutter's Fort is encamped in Sutter's Fort State Historic Park.


Another great place for the family is the Sacramento Zoo (http://www.saczoo.com/).  It provides 14 acres of some amazing animals and a great reptile house.  Jaquars, tigers and lions always amaze the kids! There are more than 4,000 animals including red pandas, snow leopards and more.  The zoo also offers educational tours for kids and other fun events.


For those looking to relax during their stay, the Discovery Park is a great place to do just that!  It offers 275 acres of shelters, picnic areas, fishing, rafting or boating, guided tours and more.  It's a great place to spend a day away from the busy city life.  Other parks include the McKinley Park and the William Land Park Golf Course.


For fun rides and exciting games, Funderland (http://www.funderlandpark.com) is the place to go.  It's a small amusement park with free admission.  Tickets are required to ride the rides, or an unlimited wristband can be purchased.  Rides include a steam train, roller coaster, and many others for small children.

The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker

Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is someth…
