Truckee California is a mountain town long on charm and very short on reasons for being bored. The outdoor possibilities in the Truckee area include whitewater rafting, rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking, fly fishing, golfing at the Coyote Moon course . . . and this is just the months without snow.
During the winter Truckee is a great base of operations for both downhill and cross country skiing with Tahoe-Donner, Sugar Bowl, Northstar and Squaw Valley ski areas all nearby. For cross country skiers, the Royal Gorge resort is just down the road.
Dog sled tours, the Truckee Ice Rink, tubing and snowshoeing are also options around Truckee and the relaxed atmosphere makes for pleasant evenings in town.
Amtrak’s California Zephyr makes stops at the Truckee station and while some think of Truckee as a gateway to Lake Tahoe, Truckee attracts many visitors who find just what they’re looking for here in the mountains and make side trips to Lake Tahoe. Either way, put this unique mountain town on the list for your next Lake Tahoe vacation and find a homebase in Truckee with Goldfish Properties.
