Nevada City California Gold Country

Nevada City got its start during the gold rush and is rich in history from that time.

There are several sites that are on the National Register of  Historic Places including Firehouse No. 2 and the National Hotel which is the oldest, still-functioning hotel, west of the Rockies.

In town Broad Street. Shops sell souvenirs, apparel, sweet treats, outdoor gear and more.

Another asset to Broad Street is the family of merchants are friendly and full of information they can give you inside information that only locals know.

Finding Nevada City is easy enough. Travel east on Interstate 80 past Sacramento to Hwy 49, Take Hwy 49 north to Hwy 20. Where 49 and 20 meet you come to Grass Valley. Nevada City is just a few short miles from there.
