Nevada City

Nov 30, 2008 04:00PM ● By Super Admin

As you leave the hustle and bustle of the highways and Interstate behind you, roll down the windows and take a deep breath. That delightful scent, my friends, is pine. And there is no better time to get a refreshing whiff than Christmastime. Welcome to Nevada City – the “Carmel of the Sierra Foothills.” And if you’ve ever been to Carmel, you know what a compliment that is. Nestled among pine trees and Victorian homes, Nevada City boasts a population hovering around 3,000 residents, and they are some of the friendliest people you will meet.
The old Nevada Theatre, built in 1865, is California’s oldest original-use theatre and is a registered National Historic Landmark. The most unique theater experience in town is found at Off Broadstreet – which is, quite literally, off Broad Street, located one street over on Commercial. Off Broadstreet is a locally-owned and operated live theater featuring year-round Friday and Saturday night cabaret musical theater with an emphasis on familiar hit songs from the 1950s through the 1990s. Reservations are recommended for these performances.
