Unless you are able to secure a metered parking spot...none available for the 04:30 trip, you will pay $1.50 per half hour at the main city parking lot located right next door to old Sacramento area....$3/ hour adds up especially if you are visiting old Sacramento, shopping, eating, strolling around and then taking the cruise.....

Parking in Old Sacramento is usually by the hour with meters or in the garage, but since Gold Rush Days was happening, the streets were blocked off so we had to park in the garage for a fixed amount.

My son likes to be on boats I think that is the only reason he had fun. Santa didn't move and looked sick. They had one cookie and hot chocolate for the kids that was cute. My son was over it after 20 min.

There was no cruise. When we arrived, we were told that because of the tree limbs,etc floating in the River after the storm, the boat would not leave dock. We could reschedule but since the 8 of us were already assembled, we decided to do it. ...continued

Santa was wonderful & jolly. Tilly the Elf did an outstanding job with the children, playing her ukelely, singing and making balloon characters!
