Bird’s eye view from Top of the City tour

From Bank of the West, looking west at Sacramento River and West Sacramento.
As part of the First-Ever Architecture Festival, yesterday featured a Top of the City tour. It was a fun way to see Sacramento from the perspective of a bird. At our own pace, between noon and 3pm, we had high altitude access to the Hyatt Grand Terrace Suite, Elks Building Penthouse, The Citizen Hotel, Bank of the West Tower and 2020 Gateway (which I didn’t get to).

My favorite perch was Bank of the West’s 24th floor. We had the entire perimeter to take in the views.

I-5 looking north.
The Railyard development just to the east of I-5.
To the west of I-5 is Old Sacramento along the river and the I Street bridge crossing over it.
The Hyatt Grand Terrace Suite offered great views of our Capitol Building as well as the Bank of the West, US Bank Tower and Wells Fargo Center.

Not sure of the name of this building.

The perch on the west side of the Elks Building was our vantage point.

The absolutely only way this could have been better were if it were done at sunrise or sunset!
