I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day, and it’s all because of these Sacramento gems.
City Editor Madeline, here. Whether you’re just trying to stay dry, or looking for a little fun, I’ve got just the thing to cure those rainy day blues.
The Morning Fork | 1111 21st St.
First, you have to start the day off right with breakfast at this mom-and-pop diner. I’m a big fan of the Potato Platter — come on, you can’t go wrong with potatoes. Ever.
Time Tested Books | 1114 21st St.
Yes, you read the address right. Mosey right on over across the street to peruse books while you recover from that food coma. The exposed brick, book-filled shelves, and scattered reading spots make this place the perfect cozy stop.
The Smart Axe | 2012 K St.
Okay, this one’s a little out there, but just hear me out. One of the worst parts of a rainy day is the restlessness from being stuck inside. Therefore, I present to you — rainy day axe-throwing.
Grab a soup | Locations vary
Rainy days and soup just go together, I don’t make the rules. Check out our guide for a great list of spots to find a steaming bowl of comfort in Sacramento.
Visit a museum | Locations vary
Maybe you have some kids that need to let off some steam, or you just really want to stay out a bit longer — either way, Sacramento is home to amazing museums for science, history, art, and more.
