California Off The Beaten Path: 187 reviews and 238 photos
Nevada City, located in the scenic Gold Gountry, is a Gold Rush Era town that dates back to the1849. Today, it still retains its historic look and feel. Its population of about 2,800 is only a fraction of the 10,000 who lived and worked there in 1850 during the mining heyday.
This beautiful town is a pleasure to visit. Its historic downtown, centered around Broad Street, is a great place to stroll. Many of the old buildings still survive and remain in use today. Restaurants, shops, and even wine tasting rooms occupy the downtown. Nevada City is located in a picturesque spot in the foothills with great hiking and camping available in the nearby wilderness.
Nevada City is located off Highway 49 near Grass Valley.
