A charming, down-to-earth mountain town with a rich history, Truckee is known as a welcoming, family-oriented community that attracts adventurous people with a passion for the outdoors and the environment.

Truckee’s picturesque downtown is the heart and soul of this community, with unique restaurants and shops set in authentic historic buildings that date back to the 19th century. But the downtown district is only the beginning of what the area has to offer visitors.

Truckee is centrally located within minutes of six world-class ski resorts; epic golf courses; lakes, reservoirs, streams for water sports or fishing; hike and biking trails; mountain bike park and pump track; action sports camps, and more! The surrounding Nevada County also offers such attractions as gold panning, Donner Memorial State Park, and museums that showcase local history.

Visit Nevada County to access suggested regional itineraries, restaurant and hotel recommendations, and tips on local wine and craft beers. Check out Adventure, the county’s guide to outdoor fun, to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the area’s offerings.

Whether you are here in pursuit of adventure, to partake in Truckee’s foodie scene, enjoy the multitude of special events that take place all year, or just relax and enjoy the blue skies and amazing smell of the pine trees, Truckee welcomes you.

Please contact the Welcome Center for specific hours of operation.
