15 Small Towns In Northern California That Offer Nothing But Peace And Quiet

Northern California has it all. If you’re a city-lover you get recharged by a visit to San Francisco or by living in Sacramento or Santa Clara. But more and more of us are opting for the smaller towns to live and raise our families. Why? Because we like knowing our neighbors and not battling traffic to and from home. These small towns offer us what the big cities just can’t: a huge helping of peace and quiet. Here are a few of our favorites to remind you to put your feet up and stay awhile.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
