Sacramento Heritage Walks

Looks like Sacramento Heritage has a new website featuring a number of self-guided walking tours through historic areas of town. Some look better than others, but definitely worth checking out.

Thought you might like a sneek peek at my new project… Romantic Film Locations. It’s a travel guide (armchair or otherwise) to the beautiful locations featured in romantic films like Atonement, Bridget Jones’s Diary, and Amelie.
