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.
Wine Tasting
Wine tasting is another favorite activity among visitors and locals. Nevada City offers a variety of wineries to sample, not to mention the neighboring area vineyards just minutes down the road. In the main downtown area, there are two tasting rooms: Indian Springs Vineyards Tasting Room on Broad Street, and Nevada City Winery and Tasting Room on Spring Street.  Venturing out of the downtown area, but still in Nevada City, you’ll find Avanguardia Wines, Szabo Vineyards, and Double Oak Vineyards & Winery.
