Exploring Old Town Sacramento

During the second week of December, my best friend, Abby, and I decided to make a day trip to Sacramento. While we were there, we explored a little bit of Old Town Sacramento.


Our first stop was at Evangeline’s Costume Shop – an extravagant three-story shop filled with all kinds of costumes. From the Middle Ages to Western to Disney – in your pick of either modest or sexy. We checked out every inch of the store and Abby walked out with some new prints to decorate her house with.


Afterwards, we grabbed a quick lunch at Railroad Fish and Chips. We both got clam chowders and some breaded fish, and we ate by the sidewalk while taking in all the sights. We made a quick stop at Stage Nine Entertainment Store since Abby was in search of some records to add to her collection (sadly, they didn’t have it).




We grabbed more food at Danny’s Mini Donuts and fell in love – $6 for 16 mini donuts?! WHY NOT?! After we enjoyed our donuts, we bought some taffy from Munchies Saltwater Taffy. I’ve visited this taffy store a few years back and what I loved about it was their twist to taffy – imagine eating buttered popcorn and mango chili taffy?! The butter popcorn was a no for me but the mango chili was amazing.

I’m bummed our trip only lasted for the day but there’s always room for more adventures in the future!

    Oh wow! This looks like such a fun trip. I’ve never been to Sacramento, or anywhere on the west coast actually! I definitely need to make a trip soon. I have so many amazing places to go visit. I think my favorite part of your trip would be those donuts. They definitely look bomb!

    you’re trip seemed really fun! I’d love to go exploring like that. My best friend moved to California, so I rarely see her. But we are planning a cruise soon. Also, $6 for 16 donuts is a STEAL. They looked delicious too!

    Yasssss it is cool to see old town Sacramento! I’ve dropped by it once but never really got to explore. They don’t mess around with calling it old town!! It makes old town Pasadena seem… a bit more modern, hehe. This definitely gave me some midwest vibes. OOOH YOUR FOOD LOOKS DELISH!! Glad you enjoyed your time with Abby!! Shoot, those donuts are such a good deal. You make me want to go up and buy the popcorn, hehehe~~~~

    Old town Sacramento is so cool. It looks like a lot of fun. I love when the town stores have a wooden sidewalk in front of the shop.

    I would like to try the clam chowder soup. I am a big fan of soups and the clam chowder looks so appetizing to me.

    I absolutely love day trips! It’s surprising what just a day’s vacation can do. Especially when delicious-looking donuts are involved. I love the concept of the costume shop! I want to visit somewhere like that. I enjoy eccentric shops, and when my mom and I travel we often go to little eccentric shops like that and look for things we can bring home that we wouldn’t usually be able to buy. When we went to Connecticut to visit family, we took two day trips to Salem, MA, and New York City. Both times we tried to find as many eccentric shops as we could!
