Those of us who live in Sacramento or visit frequently know that there are all kinds of fun things to do with kids of all ages. But did you know that someone has actually counted? According to local author Sabrina Nishijama, there are at least a thousand (seriously, one-thousand) things to do with your kiddos in and around Sacramento, and she’s listed them in her new, aptly named book, 1,001 Things to do in Sacramento with Kids.
No doubt you know about the toy train exhibit at the California State Railroad Museum, or Fairytale Town’s all-you-can-eat ice cream event (a Midsummer Night’s Dream and Crystal Ice Cream Fantasy). But did you know that you can see actual bones from an Apatosaurus at one of the best college natural history museum’s in the nation? Or get a basket-weaving demonstration at the California State Indian Museum? How about taking a beginner fly-fishing class in the American River or going on a bat tour in the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area? Not so adventurous? Then The Elegant Dollhouse and immerse yourselves in a doll’s world or indulge in some mini donuts in Old Sacramento. Whatever the age, gender, interests of your child or children, I guarantee that you will find new and exciting things to do in this book – things you’ve never done before or even thought of.
You are also going to want to own this book. It will become your go-to, kid activity guide that’ll you’ll keep in your purse, car or even back pocket. And we’ve got a copy to give away to one lucky reader. Interested?
