From holiday markets to aesthetic local coffee shops, winter in Sacramento offers something for everyone. We’ve done the planning for you — so cozy up and get exploring.
Up and at ‘em
Start your morning bright and early with a seasonal drink + pastry item from Temple Coffee. We recommend their ginger snap latte (with your milk of choice) + an almond croissant.
Once you snag your sweet treat, get strolling around the area. If you chose the Temple location on S Street, you’re walking distance to Refill Madness + Pushkin’s Bakery. Shop small gifts and grab a gorgeous, gluten-free sandwich for lunch.
Hit the ice, work up an appetite, then stop at one of the restaurants just a stone’s throw away. If you want something to thaw out that chill, we recommend Kodaiko Ramen & Bar or Solomon’s Vinyl Diner for comfort food + cocktails.
Early evening screening
Now that you’re a bit worn out + probably staving off that food coma, catch a flick at Tower Theatre and relax. During the Four Weeks of Christmas series, you can watch seasonal classics, like “It’s a Wonderful Life” or “Elf.”
Light up the night
If you’re really feeling the holiday spirit, drive by some of Sacramento’s best light + decor displays for a more scenic route on the way home.
