Sacramento, Calif.- Hidden beneath the city for nearly 150 years, Old Sacramento’s underground has long been the capital’s best-kept secret. Now in its fourth season that begins the weekend of March 23-24, visitors have the opportunity to uncover the facts behind the legends that lie below historic buildings and sidewalks.

Tour guests 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. Plus, beginning in April, special “adults only” underground tours will be available on two evenings each month where guides lead guests on special walking tours while sharing some of the dark secrets and racy tales lurking in Old Sacramento’s underground history.

For all of the guided walking tours of the underground, guests should check in at the Sacramento History Museum before descending below several historic Old Sacramento buildings. Participants should be prepared to walk in areas with uneven surfaces and low ceilings and get ready to learn and have fun all along the way.
