Gay Sacramento - A Capital Idea


Who knew such bacchanalian delights dwell in the governor's backyard? K Street appears to be the scene of a bevy of queer-centric, top-notch entertainment. Bars and restaurants that compete for your attention and your dollar flood the Midtown neighborhood ("Lavender Heights"), which is located close to Downtown. Art Museums, shopping, and club hopping are all available on the pedestrian-only K Street, which is nice when the kind of cruisin' you like to do doesn't involve an automobile.

"Sactown"--as it is often lovingly referred to--is a city of history and hot summers, college crowds and culture, and plenty more to keep people saying, "I'll be back to Sacto."
