Shadow Glen Riding Stables

We are offering horseback rental rides, horseback riding lessons, and horse boarding for Sacramento and the surrounding communities (including Folsom, Rancho Cordova, Roseville, & Elk Grove).

The paddocks had no shelters and they keep them locked, which would be unsafe for the horses in an emergency. For those reasons, I decided not to board my horses there.

Nimbus Dam and Fish Hatchery

Reviewed By SaraJL - Sacramento, CA

We love visiting the hatchery. The hatchery offers a free toddler story and craft time during the cooler months (too hot in summer). We love watching the fish jumping up the ladder during salmon season. It is so wonderful to have a great educational place for the family to come and learn about nature.

The Trove has been an institution in Roseville for a number of years, and it's always an interesting place to wander around. It doesn't have exclusively true antiques any more, it's more collectibles, and much of what's offered appears to have been rounded up at yard sales. That doesn't mean it's junk, but the vast majority of what's on offer is not rare or really old. The items that I personally collect (American Art Pottery and various US produced glass) are difficult to find here anymore, and if they do appear they're usually overpriced by quite a bit. I sure wouldn't say this is a bargain hunter's paradise, but there are some unusual things including in the outdoor area where good buys can be found on old lawn furniture and larger items like fence gates and trellis and lawn furniture made of metal. Our last purchase here was a white metal lawn chair that weighs about 100 lbs. and still graces the entry patio at our home. If you want to kill a little time this is a good place to do it.

Fun with Henry the bear was an excellent outing by having our young grandkids to enjoy with.
Unfortunately the zoo was in a repair condition and we didn’t get to see all of the animals however the reduced rate made it very bearable .

Will certainly return in the future

American River Raft Rentals

Reviewed By Adam C

Came here with my family over the weekend. We reserved a 6 person raft. It was smaller than I expected but we had only 5 people and one was a child so we had enough space.
The price was very reasonable. ~$120 for the whole thing, including shuttle tickets.

The check in process was efficient. We had to carry the raft from the rental down to the river, which was about a 5 - 10 min. walk. Getting it in the water was easy. Once we got down stream, the check out process was also straight forward.

Parking was a bit confusing at first as there wasn't a clear sign of entrance. Also, the bathroom situation wasn't great. But it is an outdoorsy place, so that's understandable.

Sacramento State Aquatic Center

Reviewed By Cristina J

The Sac State Aquatic Center is a great place to visit. One can rent waterboards, kayaks, etc.. The cool water feels especially refreshing on a hot Sacramento day. Life jackets are provided, which is all one really needs (besides a water bottle!). The bathrooms were maintained, which is always appreciated. I only wish there was more of a sandy area in which to let kids play and park a chair. However, most kids have fun and don't even notice!

Sunrise Mall

Enjoy shopping at more than 90 retailers including Macy's, JCPenney and Sears in the heart of the Sunrise MarketPlace Shopping & Business District at Sunrise & Greenback in Citrus Heights. Easy, convenient shopping and plenty of parking.

Reviewed By porsche74s - Granite Bay, California

This mall has been an institution in Sacramento since it was built many years ago. Once one of the largest malls in the country, it has suffered from the competition from Arden Fair Sacramento, and Galleria Mall and Fountains in Roseville. The large Macy's store is now closed on the Greenback north side of the mall, it will be interesting to see what happens to that large space.

I have attended and/or officiated (through my work for a hospice) at many services at Mt Vernon, and find the staff there to be very helpful, accommodating, and appropriate to the circumstances. The Garden of Peace burial area for cremated remains is actually a pretty and peaceful spot for a service (they will set up chairs and shade tents) or visiting (trees and plantings all around). The large and small chapel areas are also quite nice, and much better than many other comparable local places. I've heard that their services are not inexpensive, but cannot speak to specifics. I would recommend it to families who are able to afford what they offer.
