You Could Spend A Whole Day Exploring Over 100 Large And Colorful Murals In Northern California’s Sacramento

Home to historic buildings, a diverse dining scene, lively nightlife, and—of course—the California State Capitol, downtown Sacramento definitely has a certain charm to it. A revitalization that started in the mid-90s completely transformed the city’s urban core, turning it into the oasis of food, culture, and public art that you see today. Walking along the streets, you’ll notice that Sacramento definitely isn’t lacking when it comes to artistic expression. In fact, the city is home to well over 100 urban art murals that were created thanks to the Wide Open Walls art festival. Take a day to see them all and appreciate these stunning works of art for yourself!
