Gold Country

The Gold Country region is where you find California’s heralded history. Gold was discovered in ‘Sutters Mill’ in the 1800′s and towns sprung up around here with immigrants (49ers) settling hoping to strike it rich

This region is well worth a visit although we can’t promise you will discover your fortune here anymore!

In this region the states past, present and future merge into one with the mining history preserved alongside cosmopolitan towns, great wine producing wineries and restaurants and B&B’s to die for. The Gold Country California offers so much and is great for road trips.

The region is also great for adventure sports these days with rafting very popular in the Sacramento area. Fancy an adrenaline rush after panning for gold? Interested in the gold rush era and the history of California and how it has developed then a visit to Gold Country region is a must.
