El Dorado Hills, Ice House, Grass Valley, Auburn, Davis, Winters, Napa, Sonoma, Chico, and the list goes on and on of places to explore when utilizing Sacramento as a home – or home away from home – base. http://www.DiscoverGold (and autumn leaves, and lakes, and snow, and adventure, and so on).org.

Lake Tahoe is the most sparkling gem of the east – from our perspective anyway. Only 1.5 hours from Sacramento, it’s an absolutely do-able day trip, and is a ‘not-to-be-missed’ for anyone traveling through the Golden State.
Speaking of golden, Tahoe dazzles in the summer with casinos and clubs, beaches and bars, restaurants and shops. The silver lining? That shows itself early winter, when the snow begins falling, pleasing winter sport fanatics and simple romantics at heart.
The locals are welcoming and the visitors are friendly in this little Switzerland-like oasis of a natural miracle. Here, you can live it up celebrity-style or do it down-home and easy. And whether you head to North Shore or South shore (there’s actually an east and a west as well), there are also plenty of great Gold Rush towns to explore along the way.
Seem like a lot to accomplish in one day? Ok, go ahead and stay the night. But tell them ‘Sacramento sent ya,’ would you?
