A Day Out in Sacramento

Monday, August 29, 2022

9:45 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

ATA is pleased to bring a popular tradition back, our tour the day following the Great American Stamp Show. This year, we’ve invited our friends in the American First Day Cover Society (AFDCS) to join us. 

We’ll board our bus at the Sheraton Grand at 10 a.m. Please arrive in the lobby at 9:45 a.m.

At 10:30, we’ll begin our guided tour of the California State Railroad Museum, to experience the history of how railroads shaped people’s lives, the economy and the unique culture of California and the West. See what it was like to travel in a Pullman-style car and dine on railroad china.

Our day continues with a visit to Old Sacramento, with restaurants and shops in an old West setting. There will be time for lunch and shopping on your own.

At 2:00 p.m. we’ll board the bus to travel to the Leland Stanford Mansion State Historic Park, where we’ll have a guided tour of the 19,000 square foot mansion once owned by the railroad magnate who was also governor of California. The magnificent mansion has just had a $22 million renovation.

We will have a short stroll back to the hotel via the Capitol gardens and building.

Cost of $55 per person includes transportation and admission tickets.
