I did the Old Sacramento Underground "adults" tour here. It was a very interesting tour to take part in. Really surprising what you learn about a place and how it became what it is today. Having a tour guide dressed up and acting like a character from that time just adds to the joy, humour and occasional shock factors of what was going about in Sacramento. So pay Miss Odessa a visit
