A Day Out in Sacramento
Monday, August 29, 2022
8 a.m. - 5 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 8 a.m., and begin our day with a tour of Sacramento sights. Our tour guide will give us a bit of history as we travel around the city.
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 2:30 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’ll return to the Sheraton Grand about 5 p.m.
Cost of $55 per person includes transportation and admission tickets, as well as guided tours.
