Welcome to Nevada County!
This was home to the richest gold mines during the California Gold Rush. The picturesque towns of Nevada City and Grass Valley were built during this time and their downtown areas reflect this period in architecture and design. The town of Truckee is a special alpine village near gorgeous Lake Tahoe.
Many of you looking for a weekend getaway, a special place to retire or relocating to our area for work will find terrific opportunities in our neck of the woods. The downtowns of these great towns are vibrant with nightlife, wonderful restaurants, winery shops and creative arts just waiting to be explored again and again. You can check out downtown Grass Valley or Nevada City or Truckee on line. You can log on to information about the area at the Nevada County Chamber of Commerce. The real estate opportunities range from downtown living to wide open spaces. This area has so many different areas from planned communities around golf courses with private lakes and gated access to mountain lake communities, agricultural land from small plots to vineyards to working horse and cattle ranches. Check out what is happening with Nevada County Government. The recreational opportunities are just as varied from the major ski resorts at Truckee/Tahoe to biking, fishing, off-roading, hiking and more; we are in the heart of the Tahoe National Forest. This is home to Sierra College, Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, Nevada County Airport and the Empire Mine Sate Park
Great schools, delightful community activities and room to roam make people seek out our area for relocation and retirement. Take a peek at our local Union newspaper or on line magazine for much more this area has to offer. We will see you around the town!
