World Atlas names two Sacramento rivers ‘Most Beautiful in California’

You love to see it.


You won’t hear any arguments from us.

World Atlas has named the American and Sacramento rivers as two of California’s best riverswhich we could have told them years ago.

The geography website noted the American River’s “awe-inspiring waterfalls” as part of what makes it a great destination for outdoorsy types. It also made special mention of the Sacramento River as California’s largest freshwater resource.

But wait, there’s more. The San Joaquin River, which creates a delta with the Sacramento River roughly 50 miles south of the city before spilling into the Suisun Bay near Concord, also took a spot on the list.
