Looking for something unique and memorable to do with friends and family this holiday season? Go underground!

Revealing what’s been hidden beneath the city for more than 150 years, ever-popular Old Sacramento Underground Tours give visitors the opportunity to discover the strange but true stories below historic buildings and sidewalks. Now wrapping up its seventh season, the tour allows guests to explore excavated foundations and enclosed pathways, while entertaining and knowledgeable tour guides recount the tales of the devastation, perseverance, and determination that led to California’s only successful street-raising project.
