Sacramento, the capital of California, is known as the “City of Trees” as it contains the most trees per capita in the world. One of the most known landmarks in northern California is the Sacramento River Bridge, also known as the Tower Bridge. The Sacramento River Bridge was built in the mid-1930s during the Great Depression. The bridge spans 160 feet high and is the western gateway to the capital city, stretching across a ‘lazy bend’ of the American river.
