About California Gold Country: This region of California is one of the best vacations for families, historians, and outdoors adventurers seeking to connect with nature. The hotels in Sacramento offer the largest selection, and as you head out toward the hills of the Sierra mountains, the pickin's are slimmer, yet you'll find a fair share of affordable chain hotel options. There are some special gems offering an experience that takes you back in time.  Best known for its many museums, California Gold Country continues to chronicle the life of miners who flocked to California in the mid-1800's to seek their fortunes. Today you can still pan for gold, believe it or not!


One nugget you won't want to miss is located at the Ironstone Vineyard in Murphys. Another "wow", must-see attraction is the Big Trees State Park in Calaveras County. The giant redwoods are amazing, and the hikes on clearly-marked trails are great. A top special event is the Calaveras County Jumping Frog Jubilee held annually. It's a hoot!
