One Night Sacramento, CA

Bidam and I travel in style.

Man, our moms are lucky to have us! πŸ˜‹

We decided to explore Sacramento for one night. For those of you who follow our adventures you know that Kimpton is a popular dog friendly hotel brand that we visited before. Each hotel is different, but always locally stylish, which you know, is a requirement for us, the staff is friendly, and the food is yummy, so the humans tell us.

Kimpton bikes!

Unfortunately for us, the weekend we decided to go was one of the hottest so far, reaching over 100 degrees in Sacramento. 😩To deal with the heat our humans decided to start the day really early, hitting the road a little after 7:30am.

We're ready!

Old Sacramento

Sacramento is known for being the capital of California; not San Francisco πŸ˜‰ and for...drumroll...its tree canopy! It was the first city to get that label 39 years ago.

Old Sacramento is a part of the city that's along Sacramento River. It has lots of restaurants, novelty stores, candy and ice cream shops in historic buildings that's a throw back to the Gold Rush days.

We were exploring around 9:30 in the morning and it was already above 80 degrees!

Tower Bridge leads into Capital Mall which opens up to the State Capital Museum and State Capital Park. It's like D.C.!

Looking kinda wolfish at Joe's Crab Shack.

Can you feel the heat?!

That's not a real cowboy! Is it?!

Eventually we made our way to the hotel to check in and take a break.

Bidam's mom found a doggie day care that has a pool and made a reservation for our own private pool party, which is pretty funny because Bidam doesn't like getting into deep water.

It's nothing fancy, but Animal Den Pet Resort & SpaΒ was exactly what I needed to cool down. It's $25 for 30 minutes and they provide all the toys (that we didn't use) drinking water, and there was a shaded sitting area for the humans. Actually, the shaded area was our favorite spot, too. Since the pool isn't that deep this could be a good place for those just learning to swim, too. Animal Den Pet Resort & Spa is a regular doggy day care so you'll hear other dogs barking but overall, nothing to really complain about. Except the water, if you don't like to swim. Ha!

Next we headed to a local pet store Incredible Pets. This was completely unexpected; it's a hidden gem located in a strip mall next to a nail salon. When we went they were really well stocked. They have a wide range of food and treats that are cheaper than San Francisco prices, for the same product! I got some yummy salmon skin and cod skin.


Downtown Sacramento is going through a revitalization with a newly built stadium, Golden 1 Center, and retail space. Actually, the area reminded us of Pacific City in Huntington Beach; there were a few signs for some of the same restaurants and shops.

Aaahhhh, shade and cool concrete!

On the way back we decided to take a bit of a detour since the humans wanted to visit Ikeda's for lunch.

We stopped at Ashley Off dog park in Auburn. This is one of the most well kept dog parks we have ever seen. They close every week for 4 hours of maintenance! That's unbelievable! Who does that?!

This park even has art!

Ikeda's is VERY busy so if you want to visit try to avoid peak lunch hour. Don't be like us. This is a family run market and restaurant with fresh baked breads and pies. There were also a lot of other doggies there when we visited, so just be aware. The outdoor seating area is tight...and very crowded.

I don't know what all the fuss was about but I sure loved their strawberry ice dessert!

So tasty and refreshing!

Even Bidam had some! He doesn't normally like anything sweet...or most food in general. We're complete opposites when it comes to food. That's why our friendship works πŸ˜„

Apparently they have some pretty awesome onion rings too, but I wouldn't know. No onions for us doggies!

Sacramento. Only 1.5 to 2 hours away and it's like a whole different state!

Happy exploring!
