Nevada City is a scenic hour east of Sacramento and 70 miles west of Lake Tahoe. The gold rush town is situated just below the snow line but well above the summer heat of the central valley.
Bordering the Tahoe National Forest and located just minutes from many Sierra lakes and rivers, the area is dotted with beautiful timer hillsides. Ninety three homes and an entire downtown district qualify for entry in the National Register of Historic Places. The tight-knight town is a cultural center with a large population of writers, artists and musicians.
The average age of the population is one of the oldest in the state but the atmosphere is lively like a college town because of the exceptionally eclectic and well-educated character of the population.
The main industries are high technology companies seeking quality of life for workers and dependents, and tourism resulting from the irresistable natural beauty of the surroundings. The downtown district is full of quality restaurants, comfortable lodgings and a variety of fine shops, boutiques, galleries.
While many California gold rush towns have disappeared, Nevada City has reinvented itself. With genuine small town charm, Nevada City is the most vibrant and complete gold rush town in California.
