Nestled in the beautiful forested area of Gold Country is Nevada City, one of California’s true hidden gems. Visitors are fascinated by the authentic mining town appearance of the historic downtown.
Compared to other cities in California, the median home value of $436,600 is quite affordable. Small town living is a way of life with a population of 3,068 according to the 2010 United States Census, and a population density reported at 1,399.7 people per square mile. The town also has some of the very best schools in the state, including the Nevada County campus of Sierra College. Vacationers visit in all four seasons for the cities outdoor recreation, history, fine arts and entertainment and special events.
The entire downtown district of Nevada City is considered a national historic landmark, and as such, several historical buildings have been preserved and have received National Register of Historic Places or California Historical Landmark status. With plenty of places to fantastic places to eat, fine galleries and boutiques to shop, and cozy lodgings to stay at, it is no wonder visitors flock far and wide to visit!
Between the great schools and the friendly residents, any native will tell you “Life is good in Nevada City.” The elevation high enough to offer an escape from valley heat and low enough to avoid the clouds and thunderstorms and winter snows. Small town living is a way of life, and almost seems like an episode of Cheers because “everyone knows your name.”
If the outdoors are your thing, then there is always something to do with great hiking, mountain biking, and walking tours! Nevada city is also a gateway to the great rivers and lakes of the Tahoe National Forest and to the Yuba-Donner Scenic Byway.
Easy weekend getaways from are Sacramento and Reno to get your big city fix!
