Let's be honest - traffic in the Sacramento area can be anything but pretty, though happily there are a selection of scenic routes within day-trip distance sure to dissipate your road rage whether you head west to wine country or east to the Sierra Nevada. Keep in mind, should you chose the latter, that inclement weather often means road closures in winter - and really, truly, these roads are closed folks, so don't even consider trying to bypass the barriers, they're there for your protection. Importantly, take the curves easy and you'll be treated to a glimpse of central California's scenic other side.
