Gold Country

Historic Highway 49
A scenic tour of Gold Country history and wineries.

You may have missed your opportunity to strike it rich during the California Gold Rush, but local landmarks, annual celebrations, and history museums in Auburn, Nevada City, and Angel’s Camp will take you back. You can still pan for gold on the rivers that run throughout this region, though fishing, rafting and kayaking are more popular nowadays. Enjoy urban diversions in state capital Sacramento. Escape to the Sierra foothills for outdoor recreation year round. See the Gold Country Association website for more details about the area.
