Perched on the edge of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, Grass Valley is a small city located roughly halfway between Sacramento and Reno (about an hour’s drive from each). Established as a gold rush mining town, Grass Valley displays its rich history in its beautifully preserved architecture and numerous museums and landmarks throughout the city. The thriving Downtown district is packed with unique offerings, from historic hangouts like Del Oro Theatre and Old Towne Café to hip specialty businesses like Clock Tower Records and Pete’s Pizza & Tap House.

The Nevada County Fairgrounds hosts major regional events year-round, anchored by the namesake fair every August. Surrounded by Northern California’s unspoiled natural landscape, locals enjoy spectacular views and unparalleled access to nature: Empire Mine State Historic Park on the southeast side of town is a popular destination for running, biking, and relaxation, while more extensive adventures can be had just minutes outside of town in Tahoe and Eldorado National Forests, with Lake Tahoe close at hand as well.
