5 Things To Do in Sacramento: Best Whitewater Rafting Near Sacramento

by | Apr 23, 2021 | The Confluence Blog

Thinking about taking a trip to the Golden State’s Capitol?

The area is rich with history and ripe with things to do! We love visiting Evangaline’s Costume Mansion, for a quirky afternoon in Old  Sacramento, or visiting The Crocker Art Museum for inspiring works of art. If delving into the area’s long and sorted history is more your style, head over to Sutter’s Fort and bring some lunch. While you’re learning about California and the Gold Rush, take a short trip to where it all began, Coloma, California. Coloma, the next door neighbor to Lotus, California, is also home to the #1 activity to do while in Sacramento… Whitewater Rafting with Sierra Whitewater Rafting! Make sure to book a day out on the river with us. See animals like bald eagle and river otter, jump off of rocks into the river, charge through thrilling rapids, and create memories to last a lifetime! We can’t wait to see you out here.
