Gold Fever! Tours
Guests to Old Sacramento can now experience what it was like to catch gold fever while getting actively involved in the intriguing and new Gold Fever! guided tours. Each tour guest has the unique opportunity to take on the persona of a character in history – or a “real-life rascal” – who scratched and clawed their way to make this area the center of the Gold Rush. Never the same tour twice, the all new Gold Fever! tours relive Sacramento’s early days when gold fever ruled amid horrible disasters that threatened fates and fortunes. To spice things up even more, elements of chance are introduced that could change the fate of tour guests. Through the course of the lively tours that meander through Old Sacramento, visitors find out if they successfully escaped the many floods, if they managed to keep their gold dust (or lose it all at the gambling tables) and if they survived the fires, disease and occasional steamboat explosion. Catch Gold Fever! tours by calling 916-808-7059 or visiting www.sachistorymuseum.org

Underground After Hours
Relive the night life of Gold Rush Sacramento – if you dare. Your guides for Underground After Hours divulge matters they just can’t discuss on the daytime tours: murder, mischief, madness, mayhem – and madams. Spend a night on the new town with a shady character from the past, who’ll show you around to the saloons, gaming halls, theaters and houses of ill-fame – places you can only see in the twilight. Meet swindlers, soiled doves and sneaky speculators. Hear all the gossip on murders of passion, political intrigue and the century’s most notorious woman. Try your hand at a game of chance. It’s a gamblers’ paradise. Tours run rain or shine; dress for the weather, and wear comfortable and closed-toed shoes. The tour ends in front of the River City Saloon on Second Street, with a commemorative shot glass and a ticket for a discount drink.
