There are many storied cities in the Golden State, but Sacramento seems to have more stories than most. We don’t think it took another town’s share of tales — although we could all probably name a town or two that could use a few more interesting yarns — but it practically brims with gold diggers and train barons and Pony Express riders and people who wanted a new life in what was, for a time, the place the entire world went to to find that new life. (That still happens today, too, right?) There are places in the Old Sacramento that still hold artifacts and mementos and other items that summon those tales, and one of the main places just happens to be beneath all of those wood-planked sidewalks. Yep, Old Sactown indeed has an underground, and the Underground Tours thrown during the warmer months have proven to be extremely popular. And we’re happy to say they’re just about to start up again, on Saturday, March 31.
