18. There is a Thursday Night Band at Cesar Chavez Park downtown that is free. It is next to a cute little cafe and La Bou.
19. Asian Festival in May is a great event to go to. I went last month and they had awesome Polynesian, Tahitian, Loation, Hmong dancers. I felt like I was back on islands when I went there. It was great!
20. The baseball games at Raley Field & July 4th Fireworks.
21. The Winery's up the Hill (Placerville).
22. Apple Hill is a great drive in the fall where you can watch the leaves turn color, pick up an awesome Apple Pie and visit all the Apple farms & pick your own apples. I love taking my kids up there! You can also pick and cut down your own Christmas trees there as well.
23. Camping at Folsom Lake ~ This is cool now that the water level is up.
24. Folsom Zoo and it's Ice Cream Nights.
25. Shakespear in the Park at South Land Park.
26. Freeport Bakery ~ You need to visit them at least once to enjoy their fine cakes and baked goods.
27. Vic's Ice Cream Parlor ~ this is a great stop during the summer. Their ice cream dishes are unbelievably delicious & huge!
There are so many wonderful things about Sacramento County and it's neighbors. You just have to be adventurous and seek them out.
