Nevada City, CA 95959, USA
Gold Rush town in the foothillsNestled in the green pine-covered hills of the Northern Sierra Nevada foothills is the Gold Rush town of Nevada City. Beautiful Victorian houses line the streets keeping the old-time charm alive and a vibrant downtown is home to world-class art, theatre and music. The nearby South Yuba River State Park is known for its emerald swimming holes in summer and radiant leaf colors in autumn. These days the gold panning is more for tourists than prospectors, but the gold miner spirit of freedom is still in the air.
