Grass Valley, California: Gold Rush Boom Town in the Foothills of the Sierra Nevadas

Grass Valley is a former Gold Rush boom town nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas. Head to the historic downtown to browse its quaint streets, lined with art galleries, boutiques, and restaurants. Nearby, you can learn more about the town's mining roots at Empire Mine State Historic Park. The park houses what was once California's largest gold-producing mine; many of the original buildings remain. You can also explore the park's 12 miles of trails set aside for hiking, biking, or horseback riding.

About 75 miles to the east, the 22-mile long Lake Tahoe straddles the California-Nevada state line. But for locals, the real division comes down to the North Shore versus the South Shore. The big-ticket nightlife is down below, including major casinos where the show rooms host everything from live bands to standup comics. In the winter, the north side reigns with one of North America’s largest concentrations of ski resorts. Most of the action is split between two of them. Squaw Valley, home of the 1960 Winter Olympic Games, has 4,000 acres of skiable terrain spread across six peaks. Some prefer the more low-key atmosphere of Alpine Meadows, which has about half the acreage but a little more elbowroom.

About 55 miles southwest of the hotel lies Sacramento—the present-day capital of California. It made a name for itself in the mid-1800s when the first traces of the state’s rich gold deposits were discovered in nearby Coloma. Remnants of the iconic gold-rush era can still be found in Old Sacramento, a designated National Historic Landmark that spans eight blocks. Here, 19th-century buildings and wooden boardwalks line cobblestone streets punctuated by old-fashioned hitching posts. Pop into the River City Saloon for a pint of sarsaparilla beer, or dive into the candy-filled wooden barrels at Munchies Salt Water Taffy.
