Nevada City - Top Ten Most Beautiful Towns in California

Exit Interstate 80 in Auburn and travel north on Hwy 20 for a scenic 45 minute drive and you will find the beautifully preserved mining town of Nevada City.

The gold rush may have come and gone, but Nevada City still serves as a beacon for wanderlust souls looking for a richer life. Unlike the Eureka days of the 1800s when a miner’s life was full of grit and backbreaking work, today’s residents lead a life abundant with creativity and spirit, which is palpable throughout the downtown galleries and coffee shops.

The winter months bring an occasional fresh blanket of snow, which sets the stage for Nevada City’s traditional Victorian Christmas. This festive event is host to carriage rides, traditional costumed characters of the mining days, hot roasted chestnuts, cinnamon laced hot chocolate among many other delectable and holiday fare. Nevada City offers visitors a variety of quaint Victorian Bed and Breakfast Inns, historic hotels and a choice of delicious cuisine. The Spring and Summer months are host to events such as the Nevada City Bike Classic, Hot Summer Nights, Constitution Day and the Scotts Flats Regatta among many others.

Wine, Dine, and Stay

Nevada City boasts some of the finest restaurants in the region, with a wide variety of cuisines represented. Enjoy some local vintages before dinner at one of the downtown tasting rooms, and following your meal, enjoy the many opportunities to enjoy live music and entertainment.

The Great Outdoors

Ringed by deep green hillsides and bordering the Tahoe National Forest, Nevada City is located just minutes from sparkling Sierra lakes and rivers and forested trail systems perfect for hiking, biking and horseback riding. Excellent skiing and snowboarding is less than an hour away, as well as some of the best mountain-biking in the state.
