Nevada County is in great part the tale of three cities; Grass Valley, Nevada City and Truckee... three of the most visited historic downtowns in the western United States. Each is unique and special in its own way yet each shares a common bond of geography, a pioneer spirit, the quest for adventure and a better life.
For history, the Grass Valley Mining Museum is the most complete museum, illustrating hard rock mining in the Gold Country. The geography is a beautiful slice of nature that encompasses everything from gently rolling hills and meandering streams with a smattering of oak and pine trees to majestic forests with sheer cliffs and raging rivers.
The Adventure is an outdoor adventure playground that rivals the best. Activities such as horseback riding, kayaking, mountain biking, water sports, snow sports and fishing are just a few of what makes Nevada County, California an outdoor enthusiast's dream come true!
No county in the Gold Country is more intimately connected with all aspects of gold mining than Nevada County. Here some of the earliest placer mining took place, here much of the hydraulic mining was practiced, and here deep quartz mining was started.
