Sacramento's Gem: The American River Bike Trail

Sacramento's Gem:  The American River Bike Trail

Just when you think you are disappointed with what Sacramento has to offer, think again.. The American River Bike Trail has everything to give us a life worth treasuring. From biking to hiking,  boating to wildlife viewing, family picnic to solitary meditation, you have it all.

ARBT is aptly described in one of Bob Dylan's poems, that goes:

"There's beauty in the silver, singin' river,
There's beauty in the rainbow in the sky,
But no one and nothing else can touch the beauty"

Sutter's Fort Presents "Hands on History: Mining the Miners" on July 16!

Is Lady Luck on your side?

With a continued effort to provide more interactive, hands-on opportunities than ever before, Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park presents “Hands on History: Mining the Miners”     on Saturday, July 16, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Fort visitors will experience how California’s early pioneers often participated in high-stakes games of chance while trying to strike it rich -- as if daily life on the frontier wasn’t enough of a gamble! 

“Mining the Miners” offers a fun day of games as well as the opportunity to experience the “buyer beware” culture of the Gold Rush era. Poker and roulette are familiar to us today, but have you played Faro, three-card monte, or chuck-a-luck?

Summer Infant Water Safety in Sacramento

Summer Infant Water Safety in Sacramento

With the beginning of summer upon us, thoughts turn to fun in the sun and water.  For infants and toddlers, that can mean tragedy.  In California, drowning is the number one killer of chidren under the age of four, according to the Infant Swimming Resource of Sacramento.

In addition to providing the safest pool environment possible such as constant adult supervision, fences, covers, and alarms, ISR suggests a program of swimming self-rescue lessons as additional prevention to protect children from accidental drownings.  Children as young as 7 months old learn to hold their breath under water, roll onto their backs and float unassisted.  Older children also learn to swim with their head down, roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe and roll over again to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool to crawl out. 

These skills are taught by certified instructors to assure that a day
