"Sutter Creek - Gold-Rush City" Sutter Creek by WulfstanTraveller

Sutter Creek Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 28 photos

Sutter Creek is one of many picturesque Gold-Rush towns and is in the heart of the initial Gold-Rush country, just a few miles from Coloma, the location where gold was first discovered, precipitating the Gold Rush. It was a significant mining town for some years.

Today, with about 2,500 people, it is a very attractive, lively town. Although the downtown area is smaller than that of nearby Jackson, the county seat, and it is somewhat less impressive architecturally, it is also less ruined by modern roads, development, etc., and it has not lost so much activity to shopping centres. It also has become a primary tourist town in the county, though, so it is fairly touristy. Nevertheless, it has as a result a number of places to eat and a lively atmosphere, not just antique shops. The old residential areas around it are also attractive and interesting.
