Our AreaLake Wildwood - Live Where You Play
The historic tourist destination towns of Grass Valley and Nevada City are minutes away, with many interesting shops, restaurants, inns, and local wineries offering daily tours and tastings. This area is also popular for its large and varied performing and visual arts community, along with many opportunities to visit some of California's most beautiful state parks, hiking trails, and local lakes. Bicycling is a popular pastime, and our county hosts both the Tour of Nevada City and Amgen Bike Races.
We are in the heart of the historic Gold Country, where the great California gold rush began in 1849. Many interesting sites remain from that time, such as Bridgeport State Park and Empire Mine State Park.
Much of downtown Grass Valley and Nevada City has been preserved as historic landmarks from that time.
