Welcome to Nevada County

Welcome to Nevada County, where historic Gold Rush attractions co-exist with the charming towns of Nevada City, Grass Valley and Penn Valley. Nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, Nevada County offers great weather, natural beauty and a relaxed life-style.

The county is noted for many wonderful attributes in addition to its Gold Rush lore. Residents and visitors alike enjoy its mountain trails and scenic rivers, award-winning restaurants, quality theater productions, museums, art galleries, and local wineries.

The small-town charm features outstanding shopping with an eclectic mix of stores, local art and a beauty that is unsurpassed by many of California’s small towns.

Over the years Nevada County has changed with the times while preserving its rich history and traditions. Gone are the gold mines that brought continued prosperity, and today’s citizens and community leaders remain committed to preserving the natural beauty, local history and small town way of life that is treasured by those who live and visit here.
