Bored? Looking for something to do? Start with this list of things to do in the Sacramento area.
(Credit for the below list has to be given to u/BurritoFueled, who created the original list in 2014 and updated it a year later. Almost two-thirds of the items below are still from that original list. All I’ve done with the list is revive it a little bit by updating dead links and making little tweaks when necessary. Also, thanks to those that submitted new additions to the list last week. Over a third of the below items are new and a lot of the original items have had newer information added onto them.) People are always looking for something to do around here. Maybe you’re a transplant, unaware of what this area has to offer, or maybe you’re a lifelong resident, tired of the same old thing. Well friend, if you fall into the latter category, do not despair. There’s actually plenty of things to do in the Sacramento area – things of interest to almost any lifestyle, personality, or budget. So, whether you’re an athlete, geek, eccentric, hipster, weirdo, sexual deviant or just a normal person looking for a new activity, below is a list of activities for you to try. Please note that it includes only activities that take place at least a few times a year – no one-off events or festivals here. Enjoy this list. If you have any suggestions of your own to add, comment below in this thread. I'll try to keep this as up to date as possible. Away we go. UPDATED 10-6-20 (Note: Due to the current pandemic, some of these activities may be curtailed or not offered at all.)
Become the next Tiger Woods (the golf part, not the cheating, getting your windshield smashed by your wife with one of your golf clubs part). Start by hitting up a driving range at Top Golf or Haggin Oaks.
Purchase the sweetest sweet corn in all the land at the Davis Ranch in Sloughhouse.
When you're done in Sloughhouse, head a little further up the Jackson Highway (just past Rancho Murieta), hang a left on Michigan Bar Road, and cross the bridge (it's safe, trust me!) for one of the most historic, beautiful, and adventurous road trips in the entire area. Make sure you bring a hearty vehicle and avoid during winter and spring.
Check out – or offer your services – at the Oak Park Fix-it Café, a community-powered gathering for repairing and maintaining bicycles, clothing, household items, and the ties that bind a healthy community.
Buy some tricks, attend magic workshops, and become the next David Blaine at Grand Illusions.
Go watch some horseracing at Cal Expo. It’s harness racing from November through April and then traditional horseracing during the state fair. Want to end up with small fortune at the end of your day at the track? It’s easy. Just start your day there with a large fortune.
Watch some high school football! The Sacramento region boasts some of the best high school programs in the state. Check out top notch teams like Grant, Elk Grove, Folsom, and Del Oro to see potential NCAA Division 1 and NFL players of the future.
Watch some college football! Sac State had a huge resurgence in 2019 and UC Davis has always had a solid program. You can also check out the JC teams such as ARC and Sac City.
If Live-Action Role Play (LARP) floats your boat, Sacramento Valley Amtgard has the battles, weapons workshops, and skills classes you've been looking for.
Take a ride on the Sacramento River Train. You can ride the train or power along the tracks yourself with railbikes. They have different train excursions, including beer tasting and wine tasting trips. If you want to book a trip on a weekend, book early.
Want to learn how to fish? Try Fishing in the City from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. After you’ve learned, check out the blog from FishingBooker on where and when to go fishing and what to expect. For some recent local recommendations, check here, here, here or here.
If fishing tours are more your style, catch your lunch on a guided fishing tour of local waterways.
Take in a play at one of Sacramento's smaller, edgier, more contemporary community theatre companies, like the Big Idea Theatre.
Do you like beer and visiting breweries, but don’t like driving between them? Midtown Sacramento has got you covered! Make a day of it by visiting these breweries, all within easy walking distance of each other: At Ease, Sacrament, Big Stump, Golden Road, Fieldwork, and Alaro. If you don’t mind walking a few extra blocks, you can add Device and Urban Roots to the list.
Ever wanted to learn to sail, kayak or row? You’re in luck! The Sac State Aquatic Center offers lessons for those activities and more.
Antiquing never gets old, right? Visit Midway Antique Mall in Citrus Heights (focusing almost solely on midcentury wares), Antique Trove in Roseville, or the Antique Fair that happens every second Sunday on X Street, under the freeway.
Want to become the next Picasso? You gotta start somewhere, so take a paint and sip class at The Painted Cork in Midtown Sacramento or Historic Folsom.
It’s well known that you can play miniature golf at Scandia, but did you know that there are indoor mini golf courses in the area as well? Try SacMiniGolf in Old Sacramento, Flatstick Pub in DoCo downtown, or even glow-in-the-dark indoor mini golf at Monster Mini Golf in Rancho Cordova or at CaliGlo in Elk Grove.
The Sacramento Cactus and Succulent Society meets, and hosts a talk, at the Shepard Garden and Arts Center in McKinley Park monthly and welcomes guests. They also do field trips and their Annual Show and Sale is a must-see event for plant lovers.
Not to diminish the concert series at Fair Oaks Village Park, but when you hear "concerts in the park", everyone knows that is the Concerts in the Park series in downtown Sacramento. Live local and national acts perform on Friday evenings in the summer, and it’s totally free. If you’re not good with crowds you may want to give this a miss because it is packed!
Vacation or day trip so close, yet feel so far away, along the Delta. Rent a boat, jet skis, a cabin or camping spot, buy some bait and tackle, and/or eat out at various locations on the river.
Take a drive around the world’s smallest mountain range: the Sutter Buttes. You can actually drive around and hike the Sutter Buttes in the same day, however hiking is not free, you must do it as part of a guided group and you have to reserve a spot in advance.

Hello, Sorry if this has been asked a lot but I did do quite a bit of searching before deciding to make this post. I want to try FeralHosting as it seems to competitively priced well, but it seems that they only accept credit card and bitcoin. I'm not quite willing yet to pay with a CC directly and I don't want to dive into the Bitcoin market. If PayPal was available, I would've used that instead. Ultimately, I want to try to pay with a bit more anonymity. I did see that some people recommended using privacy.com, but I want to see what the community says before trying that. How do you guys normally pay? And also, is there a foreign transaction fee if you pay through a 3rd party? Any advice is appreciated! Thanks in advance! Note: New to seedboxes but I have done my research on it.
Advice On Switching from Feral Hosting to Seedhost.eu
I bought a plan with Feral Hosting two days ago (Argon - 20 Pounds/month, 2 TB) and my speeds are not great. I am only hitting 1:1 ratio about 50% of the time on private trackers using autodl-irssi. Because of this, I guess I am stuck for a while since I can't get H&Rs changing providers for the torrents that didn't hit 1:1 (30 of 71). What is the public consensus on using seedhost.eu. I am interested in the SSD 850 Plan (SSD 850 GB Storage, 10 Gig Connection, 28 TB Upload Quota). Below are my requirements:
What is your budget per month? 40 Euros tops
How much disk space do you need? Roughly 1 Gig if I can hit 1.5 or better ratio
Are you looking for shared or dedicated seedbox? Shared due to price
Particular uses, streaming? VPN? One-click ease? Racing? Solely for racing and increasing buffer
-- Other important criteria might include, you might touch on, is for example:
What is the primary reason for getting a seedbox? DMCA? Ratio? Wife discovered Porn? Please expand. Solely for racing.
Location (yours and/or the vendors)? Most seedboxes are concentrated in Europe (France, Netherlands, Germany). I am in the US, prefer the Netherlands.
Particular speed (100M, 1G, 10G, Ludicrous Speed, etc)? Slow, fast, fastest. As fast as possible in this budget for uploads.
Do you use public trackers extensively? No
How much experience do you have with seedboxes, linux, and alike? Need a lot of handholding? Don't need any help.
Is your location problematic? e.g. I'm at university. I'm one of three people on the island of Yap. No
Particular payment methods the vendor needs to accept: bitcoin, paypal, paysafecard, Turkish Lire? Visa preferred
Particular content: Games, TV shows, Anime; Movies; Remuxes; the oeuvre of Fatty Arbuckle? Movies, TV shows, Remux, etc.
Using problemsome trackers like public ones or challenging trackers like RED and CHD? Challenging ones yes.
Any idea on how much bandwidth you need a month? 1TB; 3TB; 30TB? Most likely 1 TB/day
Are you a paranoiac, need special safety assurances? Nope
Hello, I have a seedbox with FeralHosting at the minute but have been having lots of issues with using Plex on my server (crashing and not amazing at transcoding) and at the end of the month when this renwal peroid ends I am looking to change provider to somewhere with better support of Plex. I ahve generally found that the speeds I get torrent wise on Feral are okay but anything better for simmilar pricing I would take!
What is your budget per month? <£30 How much disk space do you need? 2TB> Are you looking for shared or dedicated seedbox? Using a shared at the minute but wouldnt be against a dedi Particular uses, streaming? VPN? One-click ease? Racing? Plex, Seeding long term (PTP, BTN Mainly) Location (yours and/or the vendors)? Most seedboxes are concentrated in Europe (France, Netherlands, Germany) Im located in the UK. Particular speed (100M, 1G, 10G, Ludicrous Speed, etc)? Slow, fast, fastest. 10g would be preferable but I would settle for 1G Do you use public trackers extensively? Dont ever use public trackers so not an issue for me. How much experience do you have with seedboxes, linux, and alike? Need a lot of handholding? A little handholding would be nice but I have a little knowledge with ssh and Ubuntu non-gui so installing sofware myself wouldn't be too much of an issue. Particular payment methods the vendor needs to accept: bitcoin, paypal, paysafecard, Turkish Lire? Paypal or using a Debit card if need be. Particular content: Games, TV shows, Anime; Movies; Remuxes; the oeuvre of Fatty Arbuckle? Tv Shows, Movies includng Remuxes. Using problemsome trackers like RED, CHD, or Publics? Do use RED to an extent so would be nice to be able to build a bigger ratio. Any idea on how much bandwidth you need a month? 1TB; 3TB; 30TB? Cant see myself using more than 5tb, but the more the merrier. Are you a paranoiac, need special safety assurances? Not particularly.
Need a seedbox around €9 (max €12) that can make 4 TB upload on GGn in a month
What is your budget per month? €9. €12 is the ultimate max. I'll only use it for one month so don't a seedbox with setup costs
How much disk space do you need? Whatever gets me 4 TB upload on GGn in a month. I'm thinking, 1 TB at the least?
Are you looking for shared or dedicated seedbox? No idea. Whatever gets me 4 TB upload on GGn in a month (+ 100 GB for RED)
Particular uses, streaming? VPN? One-click ease? Racing? Racing I guess? Again, whatever gets me 4 TB upload on GGn in a month (+ 100 GB for RED)
What is the primary reason for getting a seedbox? DMCA? Ratio? Wife discovered Porn? Please expand. Ratio on GGn
Location (yours and/or the vendors)? Most seedboxes are concentrated in Europe (France, Netherlands, Germany) No idea
Particular speed (100M, 1G, 10G, Ludicrous Speed, etc)? Slow, fast, fastest. No idea. Whatever gets me 4 TB upload on GGn in a month (+ 100 GB for RED). If by chance I get multiple options, I'll become choosy
Do you use public trackers extensively? I'll not be using public trackers on this seedbox
How much experience do you have with seedboxes, linux, and alike? Need a lot of handholding? No experience at all. I like to think that as long as there is a GUI, I'll survive
Is your location problematic? e.g. I'm at university. I'm one of three people on the island of Yap. Location is not problematic
Particular payment methods the vendor needs to accept: bitcoin, paypal, paysafecard, Turkish Lire? I haven't given this a thought. I'll think about it later
Particular content: Games, TV shows, Anime; Movies; Remuxes; the oeuvre of Fatty Arbuckle? 4 TB games on GGn, 100 GB music on RED and if possible, 200 GB anything on TL
Using problemsome trackers like RED, CHD, or Publics? Yes - RED. But it's only 100 GB so I'm okay maybe?
Any idea on how much bandwidth you need a month? 1TB; 3TB; 30TB? At least 4.5 TB
Are you a paranoiac, need special safety assurances? I'm not paranoid
Other more unique requirements? You want to run a website too; Azureus is your favorite client, can't live without it; Or god forbid you really, really need Windows. No. Nothing else.
Some more info which might be useful -
GGn has a planned global freeleech on 31st so I'm hoping for 2 TB upload that day (too ambitious?). Rest 2 TB would be covered in rest of the month
GGn has the no.1 priority. RED no.2. TL no.3. Rest of the trackers no.4
I'm currently considering Feral Hosting Helium plan. Is there any similar but cheaper option? OR Is there any similarly priced but better option?
I am currently sharing a seedbox with 4 other people, but I am looking into getting my own. As of right now, I give my $ to the guy that directly rents the seedbox, which keeps me completely anonymous. I'm a little nervous about giving my information directly to an actual company. Is this something I should be concerned about? My main concern is receiving a copyright letter. Edit: Also, should I pick a company that hosts in a country with lax copyright laws?
Hello everyone, maybe you can help me out. As stated in the title, I'm looking for a Seedbox which I only want to use for What. It shouldn't cost me more than 15 € a month and Bitcoin should be available as a method of payment. In the next, or probably, two months I won't be able to download anything via ftp from the box, therefore I would use this time to build up buffer and a better ratio. Even after that - the amount of music I really need is pretty small, maybe around 10 gb/month. I just think it's a good cause, having a lot of content in good quality always available. In addtition to this: I'm not aiming for a Power User status (and other trackers/ tracker invites), nor do I want to win a race. Only give and take (a little bit). So, the requirements are:
unmetered traffic or I'm not really sure how much I need
I've decided to order a new seedbox from Feral Hosting. However, when trying to order one, it says "Note: GoCardless and Bitcoin will return soon." Does anyone know when the possibility to pay with Bitcoins return? Edit: Looks like they're having system set within the next few weeks.
Looking for suggestion for seedbox - I'm in US, the PT is mostly for Asia and would like large traffic
I have done some researches and it seems to me that seedhost.eu, Feral and Pulsed comes close to my budget range and need for disk space and traffic. However, I might be hesitant as I have read some negative reviews about Feral and Pulsed on this forum. Could someone give me some suggestions based on my following need? Thanks a lot!
What is your budget per month? 20USD
How much disk space do you need? 2TB
Are you looking for shared or dedicated seedbox? Shared
Particular uses, streaming? VPN? One-click ease? Racing? Mostly for private tracker. My major PTs are asian users based so I think I would like a box that has good connection to east Asia area. In the meanwhile, I plan to sync the completed stuffs back to my local server in U.S. However, my local download speed is only 20 MBps so that the bottleneck for syncing files back will be on my local ISP.
Other important criteria might include, you might touch on, is for example:
What is the primary reason for getting a seedbox? DMCA? Ratio? Wife discovered Porn? Please expand. Ratio. PT has been a extremely convenient way to acquire and share contents. However my local network is too bad (horribly upload speed) to host one on my own.
Location (yours and/or the vendors)? Most seedboxes are concentrated in Europe (France, Netherlands, Germany) A Europe based server will be fine. I'm not a racing guy.
Particular speed (100M, 1G, 10G, Ludicrous Speed, etc)? Slow, fast, fastest. 1G seems to be good enough.
Do you use public trackers extensively? 95% Private Trackers and 5% Public Trackers.
How much experience do you have with seedboxes, linux, and alike? Need a lot of handholding? 4+yrs on Linux, quite comfortable with Linux commands and CLI; 10yrs on programming; 3yrs on Private Trackers; Beginner for seedbox. Have tried seedbox (No PLEX for my choice so I ask for a refund, and later found that I actually don't need PLEX. Also not enough traffic) and whatbox (not enough traffic) for several days and would like for more suggestions.
Is your location problematic? e.g. I'm at university. I'm one of three people on the island of Yap. Nope
Particular payment methods the vendor needs to accept: bitcoin, paypal, paysafecard, Turkish Lire? Nope
Using problemsome trackers like RED, CHD, or Publics? ?Not for now
Any idea on how much bandwidth you need a month? 1TB; 3TB; 30TB? at least 10TB, 30TB would be desired
Are you a paranoiac, need special safety assurances? No
Other more unique requirements? You want to run a website too; Azureus is your favorite client, can't live without it; Or god forbid you really, really need Windows. Hmmmmm...I guess no.
I'm looking into getting a seedbox but the payment methods available is what's giving me trouble. I don't have a paypal account and I don't want to use a regular credit card or debit card. I have no experience with bitcoin either. My only real option is a non-refillable prepaid gift card (Mastercard). On the bank's website it states that the Mastercard gift card can be used for online purchases in (my country [Europe]) and internationally. So my question is, which of the following seedbox providers will accept a MC gift card: Feral Hosting, Seedhost.eu, Whatbox (they seem to be accepting Paypal and BTC only), seedboxes.cc, dediseedbox, seedboxcompany, others (?). I need a seedbox that allows public trackers as well. I think my best shot is with Ferahosting and their 'Stripe' payment, but other threads in this sub regarding gift cards are from 2 years ago, so I had to ask! Thanks for reading
My friends and I got a $200 Visa gift card and we were planning on buying a year's worth of Feral Hosting, however, we tried paying with google wallet but the gift card is only accepted in the U.S. It also seems super hard to get Bitcoins. Any recommendations as to how we can pay or other seedboxes that accepts paypal?
Much like many of my fellow soon to be seedbox users, I worry about associating my personal credit card information with a service that will be used to download content illegally. I've tried to get a definitive answer on whether prepaid giftcards work with some of the major seedbox companies, but so far my efforts have yielded nothing concrete. So I ask the absolutely wonderful seedbox community if anyone has any recent knowledge of whether this method works. Maybe we can get a ongoing list or something that we can keep up to date? Also, I know that bitcoins work, that being this careful is probably pointless, and that my IP is already going to be associated with the seedbox. Call me crazy, but there's just something about attaching my credit card information that sketches me out to no end. Many thanks! Edit: Thanks for all the responses. I decided to go out and buy a Visa giftcard from my local Ralphs grocery store. Activated the account and paid for a FeralHosting spot using Google Wallet without any problems. Once again many thanks!
I've looked at what makes people successful and would like to share the conclusions I've drawn here with the rest of you. I welcome any additional contributions in the comments. I will hopefully look back at this every now and then and remember how to stay the course. -accountt1234 -Figure out what you're good at. Peter Thiel explains it in this video. Startups need to figure out how to do one thing uniquely well. This is not just true for startups, but individuals as well. Instead of focusing on the things you can't do, you need to focus your attention on the things you're good at. The way to do this is to make a list and look at what you have accomplished in life that sets you apart from other people. Don't focus too much on the things society teaches you to be proud of. You got a college degree? So did millions of people around the world. You baked the best pie at a pie baking contest? That's far more interesting. Ignore the voice in your head that says you need to be good at everything. Back in the old days when we lived in small scale communities, our roles were more diverse, and people had to be reasonably skilled at everything. In today's society, more important than anything else is the ability to be good at one thing. That doesn't mean you need to limit yourself to one thing though. -Your flaws are key to your success To succeed, you have to be flawed. Microsoft became big by being dorky. Bill Gates and his company never managed to shed the image of nerdiness, and as a result, Windows came to be seen as a modest and dependable choice of operating system. Microsoft keeps trying to be cool, and never succeeds. Consider their hilarious attempt at convincing normal people to host a Windows 7 launch party at their home. Similarly, Oprah Winfrey became successful by being fallible. She gave birth to a child that died within a few days in the hospital back when she was a teenager, and her weight continues to fluctuate in all directions. Had she looked like a model, or a track record of a saint, people would feel unable to empathize with her. Even those flaws that seem to stand in the way of success are essential to succeed. As an example, being lazy means you will try to find an efficient way to do a job, which will benefit you in the long run. Similarly, you may lack confidence in yourself, or be easily demotivated. Lack of motivation and self-confidence ensures that you abort any projects that are unlikely to lead anywhere, which brings us to the next point. -Nine out of every ten attempts will fail Most successful artists look back at their early work in embarrassment. Some even change their name halfway through their career, because they no longer want to be associated with their early work. As a teenager I had my own blog where I analyzed news. I received a few invitations to appear in documentaries, as well as two requests to appear on Russia Today. At some point I looked at it and began to think "This is not who I really am". I then deleted everything and never looked back. It's similar to hunting or fishing. A feral cat who misses nine out of ten birds he jumps at has more than enough to eat. You don't have to persevere in one thing until it delivers you success. A cat who follows the same bird until it lands somewhere else will probably get really hungry eventually. Abort something if it doesn't go anywhere or makes you unhappy. If you tried something nine times, but enjoyed the road to failure, then it can hardly be considered failure. As an example of this idea, take a man who invested 1000 dollar back in September of 2011. He put 900 dollar into 9 different startups, all of which failed. He put 100 dollar into Bitcoin. Those 100 dollar are now worth 3000 dollar, making him more successful than most major investment funds. Economists understand this principle, and this is why our society allows people to escape most of their debt when their small company fails. Humans pursue innovation and take risks, because the one time where it pays off is more than enough to make up for the nine times where it doesn't. This brings us to the next point. -You don't have to be the best at it when you do something new The people from Siberia who first crossed the Bering strait were unlikely to be much better at anything than the people who stayed behind, and yet, left many times more descendants than the tribes that stayed in Siberia. Why is this? Because they faced less competition. If you try something new, there's a good chance it will pay off. The rate of change in today's society is much faster than during any previous time in history, and society is in fact changing so rapidly that we suffer as a result of our inability to adapt fast enough. New niches are opening up everyday, there to be filled by individuals. For every band that tries something new, there are a thousand that play the same old tired identical-sounding black metal that people who sucked at playing guitar invented back in 1991. When you do something new, you don't have to be the best at it. You just have to be good enough. And luckily for us, most people are good enough at something. The first mammals that went back to the ocean and evolved into whales probably sucked at swimming compared to their present day descendants, but they were good enough at it to eat fish. -Don't worry too much about money Not all success is measured in money. Sometimes the money comes long after you achieved your success, which is often visible to others before it becomes visible to yourself. Van Gogh died impoverished. Most businesses take a few years before the owner can start taking home a share of the profit. Ran Prieur writes:
Do not try to find a job doing what you love. This is my most radical advice. There are some people in the world who have jobs they love so much that they would do them for free. If you become one of these people, you will probably get there not through planning but through luck, by doing what you love for free until somehow the money starts coming in. But if you make an effort to combine your income and your love, you are likely to end up compromising both, making a poverty income by doing something you don't quite love, or no longer love. For example, if you decide to become a chef because you love cooking, it will probably make you hate cooking, because cooking will become linked in your mind to all the bullshit around the job. What I recommend instead is to separate your money from your love. Get the most low-stress source of income that you can find, and then do exactly what you love for free. It might eventually make you money or it might not. "Do what you love and the money will follow" is mostly false. The real rule is: "If you're doing what you love, you won't care if you never make any money from it -- but you still need money."
It doesn't always work this way however. If for example, you love making money, this advice might not apply to you. -Avoid distractions If you are intelligent, the number one distraction for you is likely to be video games, where you are free to do anything you want, but none of it has any real world consequences. Video games and television are drugs. Similarly, news is a distraction. If something stands no chance of impacting your life, it's best not to pay too much attention to it. You spend most of your time doing nothing productive. People today feel busy, because they spend most of their free time engaged in "easy entertainment", such as video games or television. The two hours you spend playing videogames don't feel as long as the two hours you spend walking through the forest, and thus, you feel busy because you're barely conscious during the time you have available for yourself. The smart option is to engage your brain in autopilot while doing work, and to be consciously there while doing something you enjoy. When doing something fun, consciously realize what you are doing, and the limited and temporary nature of it. As an example, harvesting food is a labor-intensive and time-consuming process. When slaves harvested crops, they would sing together. Why would they do this? By singing together, their minds are focused on their friends and families and the songs they sing together, as opposed to the work they are forced to do. This allows them to keep their mental space free, and thus limit the slavery to their bodies, as opposed to their spirits, which are still free. If the circumstances of life force you to clean toilets or make sandwiches, do not allow your brain to be there, but go through the motions on autopilot. You'll likely make fewer mistakes as well. If on the other hand, you are eating food, or talking with friends and lovers, savor every moment. -Success is there to be shared The best way to use money is to use it in such a way that you don't have to think about it. By the time you are successful, you'll find yourself needing genuine friends more than you will need money. A friend is anyone who has shown himself to be dedicated to your wellbeing. A lot of people appear as if they are friends. Oftentimes they have no interest in your wellbeing, but rather, require you for their own wellbeing. You probably have fewer friends than you think. You certainly have fewer friends than you have on Facebook. Share your success with friends.
