America’s Most Diverse City happens to be California’s capital and fifth-largest municipality. It is both an economic and cultural hub for not only the state, but the West Coast at large. Sacramento can be found at the merger of the American and Sacramento Rivers, and was a crucial site of the famous, 19th century Gold Rush. 

Today, it the site of the world-famous and prestigious UC Davis Medical Center, a leading hospital and medical research facility; 500,000 people comprise the downtown core, with 2 million populating the city’s greater metropolitan region. Since the City of Trees lays further inland than most comparable, Californian cities, it is known for its wide temperature variations.

A key hub for Southwest Airlines (the carrier is responsible for transporting 50% of its annual flight base); the airfield transports an estimated 9 million foreign and domestic passengers per year.

The facility has two terminals and 32 passenger gates; the airfield itself sets on 6,000 acres, making it one of the biggest in the West Coast. Free Wi-Fi access is available throughout both terminals. Sacramento International’s B Terminal recently underwent a sheer, $1 billion modernization upgrade, in effect expanding it to three times its original size and installing an automated people mover system for visitor convenience.
