Extreme eats and high-flying feats at the 163rd California State Fair

The 163rd California State Fair will be taking over Cal Expo from July 8 to 24, serving up rides, concerts and exhibits—with a side of chocolate-covered bacon. Look upward to see the Sky Ride, the fairground’s newest attraction. The $1.1 million permanent installation features a 1,315-foot gondola line, allowing visitors to ply the air high above Cal Expo.

Wine and dine at 15 of the region’s best restaurant patios

Summer has officially arrived, making this the perfect season for casual al fresco dining. We scoured the region for 15 of the best restaurant patios, places where you can eat, drink and be cool under the shade of a palm tree by day, or the glow of twinkling lights by night. Aioli Bodega Espanola Although this Andalusian restaurant is right in the heart of midtown Sacramento, take a seat in its outdoor garden and you'll feel like you're worlds away from an urban environment.
