Getting around in Sacramento

Jump to last reply

We will be visiting Sacramento from the UK for 4 days in August, prior to travelling east on the California Zephyr. We really want to explore the city thoroughly, on foot and by public transport. I'm confident that this is the best way to see London [our home city] but would like some local knowledge and advice, particularly on whether handing back the rental car would be wise.
I have explored the city's light rail/bus website but matching this up with the location of a decent hotel is difficult for a stranger. We have Marriott points, so one of theirs would be preferred. This is a 70th birthday treat for me, but we are both fully mobile and enjoy walking. It's the city and its attractions [museums, historic buildings, galleries, etc.] we will want to see rather than outlying things, as we have made several previous visits to California but never to Sacramento.
I'll be grateful for any insider knowledge.
