California's state capital is one of the nicest cities in the country to visit, because it has a little bit of everything, and would keep people of all ages and interests happy. In 2002, Sacramento was named “America's Most Diverse City” by TIME magazine. There are so many walks of life here, that most people will not exactly “stand out” if they go there. There is also a lot of take in in this city, and we wouldn't want you to miss out just because you need to get your oxygen therapy.
A portable oxygen concentrator from us will make your trip by car, plane, boat, or bus much more convenient than having to bring refillable oxygen tanks with you. Not only are you unable to bring oxygen tanks on board an airplane, but you would need to lug them with you in your car, RV, or bus, and then store them in your hotel room, or wherever you would be staying.
A portable oxygen concentrator only needs its battery power to run, and all of our rental portable models are approved by the Federal Aviation Administration for travel on an airplane. Just call the airline 2 weeks ahead of time, so you know how many batteries you will need for your trip. If you are traveling on a long road trip to Sacramento, however, you will need to make sure your car's battery is in good working condition to run and charge your concentrator's battery on the way there.
Fall is definitely the best time of year to visit Sacramento, since it's not as hot as the summer, but still warm enough for swimming and other outdoor activities. Fall also sees much less rain than any other time of the year in this city. Even though it's not quite as hot in the fall, it can still be hot enough to cause damage to your portable concentrator if you leave it in a car. Wherever you go, bring your concentrator rental with you. Cooler temperatures are also much less damaging to someone's health who has a chronic lung disease.
If you are with the family, you will need to come and see the Sacramento Zoo, which features many resources and educational opportunities for people of all ages. To learn about and experience Sacramento's rich history, check out Old Sacramento State Historic Park, where you learn about Sacramento's part in the Gold Rush, Transcontinental Railroad, and The Pony Express. Another great place to go, especially if you are into art, is the Crocker Art Museum, where among the permanent collections, are the European, Asian and African and Oceanic Art Exhibits.
For a bite to eat, you can't come to Sacramento and not check out one of the best restaurants in town, uniquely named The Kitchen. If you want to eat somewhere a little less pricey, check out The Firehouse, which is right up there in quality with The Kitchen. Just be sure to charge up your batteries before you set out for the evening, so you can have as much fun as possible.
