The Delightful Small Town In Northern California You Probably Don’t Know Exists But Should Visit ASAP

Nestled in the foothills between Lake Tahoe and the Central Valley, there is a delightful small town called Nevada City. It’s got plenty of rural charm and a surprising amount of sophistication for such a small community. If you are drawn to the artsy, creative culture of large cities but crave the countryside’s charisma and slower pace of life, then Nevada City is the place for you.

Take a stroll through the heart of Nevada City and be dazzled by its small town charisma. Old buildings from the 1800s will remind you of a wild west town and the mid century design of town hall hearkens back to a slower, simpler time.
