Hot Air Ballooning in Sacramento

ballooning 1     ballooning 2     balloon 3     ballooning 4

 

Sacramento is the capital of California, and is located in the northern part of the state.  With an estimated population just over 2 million, you would expert there to be much to do in this city.  And you would not be disappointed.  Fancy hotels, 5-star cuisine, world class wineries, happening clubs and pubs, and an NBA basketball team (Sacramento Kings), make Sacramento a worthy destination. 

 

But that’s not all the town has to offer visitors. If you love heights, what better way to enjoy  Sacramento than in a hot air balloon.
