It’s nearly impossible to go on a road trip in Northern California and not find a charming town full of fun places to get out and stretch your legs. Many folks are planning their family vacations this time of year, and instead of picking a boring route that will cause the dreaded road trip questions (“Are we there yet?”), why not plan to drive through interesting and amazing towns like Tahoe City? It’s one of the many spectacular small towns here in Nor Cal, but we love that there are cultural and physical activities to satisfy everyone who piled in your car.

On your next drive through the Sierra, I encourage you to slow down and savor the drive. Northern California has many amazing roadside stops and attractions. Which ones are your favorite?
