Laundry On Sundaes

Every beginning is only a sequel, after all, and the book of events is always open halfway through.

Yufei and I went on little weekend trip to Sacramento a few weeks ago. Megabus recently opened up some new routes in California and it was super cheap to take a bus to get to Sacramento (fares start at $1!). We got there in the early afternoon and our first stop after lunch was the Crocker Art Museum.

It was a much bigger museum than we anticipated! There was everything from modern and contemporary art to European masterpieces to Asian and African art.

There was even a special Norman Rockwell exhibit going on when we were there, which was a nice surprise. They had this little station set up where you can take a photo resembling Rockwell’s Triple Self Portrait.

The next morning we walked around Capitol Park and eventually made our way over to the State Capitol. It was a beautiful sunny day but very cold. Too bad we couldn’t take a tour inside because it was a weekend.

We walked around downtown a bit more and then in the afternoon went to the California Railroad Museum.

We learned a lot about the history of the Transcontinental Railroad and California’s history (now we actually know where many of the names of the streets in SF come from!).

There were also a lot of restored and reconstructed train cars that you can explore and even board. The coolest one was a sleeper car that even mimicked the motion of a travelling train!

I had a lot of fun on this little trip. It was the perfect affordable mini day or weekend trip from SF!
