Life is good in Nevada City. Residents enjoy healthy small town living, greeting each other on the street and doing business with a smile and handshake. Long-time residents and newcomers together represent a wide spectrum of interests and perspectives. Above all, the friendly and welcoming attitude of residents and the entire community are cited as the main reason why people want to settle and enjoy life here.

Nevada City is one of California's best preserved Gold Rush towns, and the historic district is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. With a population of 2800 this beautiful small town has numerous restaurants and shops, a wide range of arts and cultural opportunities, films, music and theater, and some of the best schools in the state, including the Nevada County campus of Sierra College. Sacramento International Airport is an hour away. The San Francisco Bay Area is 2+ hours away.

At 2500 feet elevation, Nevada City is framed and protected by ridgetops and promontories. Deer Creek flows through and graces the center of town. Bordering the Tahoe National Forest and ringed by wilderness, lakes and rivers, you'll find abundant outdoor recreation. Hiking, mountain biking, boating, kayaking, skiing and winter sports, and nature activities of all sorts abound.
