Eight Reasons You Need to Explore California's Gold Country

Eight Reasons You Need to Explore California's Gold Country

With daily non-stops from Vancouver to Sacramento, it’s never been easier to explore a new part of the Golden State

Skip the bustle of Los Angeles and the well-known Napa Valley vineyards and head for California’s Gold Country where the pace of life truly slows down, more than just a few beats.

Hop in a rental car after the two-hour flight and head north. The history-rich region has something for every kind of long weekender, from a quiet getaway at a heritage bed and breakfast in one of America’s lesser-known most charming towns, Auburn, to sampling farm-to-table beers and wines from new and old vines in Placer County (including some that lasted through prohibition).

If you’re after a little more action, head onwards to Downieville to hit some of America’s best single-track mountain bike trails and onto Sierra City to hike beautiful sections of the famed Pacific Crest Trail, or go for a soak in a natural hot spring.

Of course, if it’s the history you’re after, gold was discovered here and there’s a whole lot of museums, remnants, and ghost stories to explore and uncover—maybe even a little piece of the precious metal still to be found for yourself.
