Nevada City and her twin city Grass Valley are both restored Victorian towns located in Nevada County just three miles apart, and at approximately 2,400 feet in elevation. They are bustling hubs of activity with small town ambiance where business, art, history, and culture, outdoor recreation and entertainment abound. In 1997, Time Magazine ranked Grass Valley as one of the ten most desirable small cities in which to live. Just down the road are Penn Valley and the gated golfing and boating community of Lake Wildwood.

Nevada County is located one hour from the North Shore of Lake Tahoe and some of the finest world class ski resort, one hour from the State Capitol of Sacramento, and two and a half hours from San Francisco. Right here in Nevada City and Grass Valley, we have fantastic boutique shopping, classical musical festivals, and concerts and live theater.

Nevada City recreational areas are second to none in the world. This includes lakes and rivers for boating, fishing, water skiing, rafting and kayaking, and trails for hiking and mountain biking.
