The epicenter of California history is in Gold Country, and it still entices visitors to the area today. Get a feel for old California as you visit historic gold towns and museums nestled in the Sierra foothills. But it’s not just about old California; you’ll experience some of the best winemakers and farm to table advocates around. The food and wine culture they are cultivating is the real 'gold' in Gold Country.
The varied landscape of rolling hills, forests, caves, and fast rivers means it’s also an adventurer’s paradise. Get your adrenaline pumping while squeezing through caves, rafting down swift rivers, hiking the hills, or simply going for a drive on the rolling Gold Rush Trail. Gold Country always has, and still does, speak to the adventurous spirit.
