Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area
Ready to get back to nature? The 16,600 acre Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area is located in the heart of the Pacific Flyway. It is a haven for fish, waterfowl, birds, neotropical migratory birds, raptors, snakes, turtles, toads, and bats. Bring your binoculars.
A delightful surprise awaits you along the Sacramento River Walk. “Subtile” is a 26-foot-long, 14-foot-high sculpture covered in 34,000 mirrors. Resembling a cluster of trees, this shiny and mesmerizing sculpture by Czech artist Federico Diaz will no doubt delight you.
Kru Contemporary Japanese
Heralded as one of the best takeout restaurants in Sac, patron favorites include the Australian wagyu and the prix fixe Omakase. You can find this contemporary cuisine gem on Folsom, south of McKinley Park.
The Dragon House
Along Curtis Hill’s aptly named Diagon Alley is a private fantasy dreamscape. The handmade clay tiles on this home depict dragons, lions, fairies, owls, frogs, and nymphs. The side of the building features a massive dragon and white tiger. This home has been an artistic work-in-progress for 20 years.
McKinley Park Rose Garden
Speaking of McKinley park, it’s home to the city’s biggest rose garden. Located on H Street, the garden has a few roses still in bloom even in the winter season. The garden has been a Sacto landmark for over 90 years and features more than 1,000 rose bushes, tree roses, and other blooming beauties.
