Sacramento's Riverfront
Old Sacramento State Historic Park California


The riverfront of Sacramento was the supply port for the gold camps and towns of the northern Mother Lode. It has now been restored to a semblance of its late nineteetnh century appearance as part of Old Sacramento State Historical Park.

Gold-painted Tower Bridge was a landmark on the Lincoln Highway, the first transcontinental highway. Paddlewheel steamers once again ply the river, for day excursions and dinner cruises, and serve as floating restaurants and hotels.
