Retail & Tourism
Preservation of the historic downtowns with their classic boutique shops is a priority in Nevada County. For residents, most support the concept of the need to shop locally, which directly helps build the great communities we enjoy.
There is a wide diversity of tourist opportunities that are available throughout the year. From the physical challenges of adventure through such things as hiking, mountaineering, skiing, and golf; to the mental fulfillment of cultural heritage tourism through the arts, music, and exploration of historical landmarks; to sheer leisure activities of wine tasting, fishing on one of the many incredible lakes, or enjoying an evening of fine dining; to taking in major events such as the Nevada County Fair, the Truckee Championship Rodeo, or Victorian Christmas in Nevada City; there is something for everyone in Nevada County.
