Gold Country

4.5
Sprawled along the Sierra foothills on the state's eastern side, Gold Country invites you to take a journey back in time to the haphazard era when miners were shaping modern California. Named after the rich mother lode--which can still be found there--the region also boasts new riches, including award-winning wineries, farm-to-table restaurants, and charming bed and breakfasts. A ride along Highway 49 through meadow-and-oak countryside dotted by slumbering towns with Old West architecture is a good way to evoke the bygone days. Part of Greater Sacramento, Auburn is just one of the many historical landmarks the region abounds in, but a Gold Country trip is not all about the gold rush attractions. The striking landscape of Yosemite National Park draws outdoor enthusiasts to the area, too. Gold Country is in California. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to United States fast, fun, and easy.
