Lifestyle Overview

Nevada County quality of life surely rests in the beauty and majesty of the Sierra Nevada Foothills. But quality of life doesn’t stop there. Many residents enjoy the Nevada County lifestyle because of the most amazing and exciting educational, recreational and entrepreneurial opportunities it provides.

Nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Nevada County and surrounding areas have received world-wide recognition for their advanced whitewater and river sports, top-notch ski resorts and hiking/biking trails meandering throughout the County.

When families and friends aren’t enjoying sunshine or new snow, they’re enjoying the downtown culture of Nevada County’s finest towns and cities. Theatre and clubs are always alive with music and play.

Art galleries and artists are sharing their work in street fairs and open-house gatherings.

Among the most promising and creative assets of Nevada County are its children. Nevada County schools are ranked among the top in California.

But don’t just take our word for it… Travel author David Vokac, in his book, “The Great Towns of Northern California,” ranks Nevada City second only to Napa, in affordability and livability.

This area saw its first boom during the California Gold Rush, well over 150 years ago. Once a center of mining and logging, today Nevada County remains an employment center of a different sort. Nestled in the pine and oak forests, one finds research and development divisions of world leading high tech firms, software developers, and manufacturers of a diverse array of products.
