Additional Location Information

Nevada City is a perfectly preserved Victorian town on the Register of Historic Places. It dates back to the California Gold Rush era, and was the northern capital of the gold mining region along Highway 49. There are many historic buildings in town, including the oldest operating theater in the West, and the original assay office for the gold mining industry of the 1800's. The town is filled with beautiful old Victorian buildings, both homes and businesses. Spring, summer and fall are gorgeous for outdoor activities. The fall foliage is magnificent, and winter brings its own charms. Nevada City's famous Victorian Christmas, celebrated Wednesday ecenings and Sunday afternoons throughout the month of December, draws visitors from all over. And the occasional snowfall blankets the town and countryside in white. Skiing is only an hour or so away, up Interstate 80 towards Truckee. If you want a more temperate climate to stay in and not have to go too far to ski, Nevada City is the perfect spot.

Nevada City, and it's close neighbor, Grass Valley, another vibrant historic town, host a wide variety of cultural activities all year long. There are music and art festivals, concerts of all kinds, live theatrical performances, fairs, the Nevada City Fourth of July Parade, and the famous Nevada City Bike Race held in downtown Nevada City each year on Father's Day. The North Columbia Story Telling Festival, also held every year, has gained wide notoriety and draws folks from all over to hear some of the country's best storytellers. North Columbia, just a short drive from Nevada City, is a former gold rush town, now just a crossroads with the old two room schoolhouse converted to a community center as the venue for the festival. In addition, there are three championship golf courses in Grass Valley and Auburn, within a half hour's drive.
