Discovered by Spanish explorers around the turn of the 19th century (and named after the Catholic Holy Sacrament), the capital city of California played an important role in American history as the Western end of the Pony Express and the first transcontinental railroad. The city has a well-preserved Old Town district, and is home to the oldest public art museum west of the Mississippi River, the Crocker Art Museum. Visitors can take a ride on an authentic restored steam locomotive at the California State Railroad Museum. Avid filmgoers can take in a variety of film festivals held each year, from the Sacramento French Film Festival and Horror Film Festival to the Trash Film Orgy, a festival celebrating the most absurd and campy films from a variety of genres.
