NEVADA COUNTY WELCOMES YOU!

NEVADA COUNTY IS A WONDERFUL PLACE to discover or revisit and we would like to humbly suggest that the Nevada County Gold website is the perfect place to make your plans. We’re enthusiastic about our area because there is so much to do here, including lots of things that are truly unique! Perfectly positioned on the Western Slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, we’re home to an amazing array of activities and cultural events. Depending on how far you want to zoom out, you can think of us as halfway between California’s Mojave Desert and North Coast Redwood Forests. Or maybe you’ll see us as right between San Francisco and the enticements of Reno, Nevada. Any way you look at it, once you’re here we suspect you may not want to be anywhere else. We’re pleased you've found Nevada County Gold online and we’d love to be your “insider” tour guide. Just pick and click and we’ll be proud to show you all that our wonderful part of the world has to offer.
