Located in the heart of the Sierra Nevada, Truckee offers the perfect balance of spectacular scenery, an abundance of natural snowfall, outdoor adventure, lodging, dining, and a fascinating history. That's why Skiing Magazine listed Truckee as a "Top Ten Ski Town" in its September 2004 issue. But you don't have to be a skier or diehard outdoor enthusiast to enjoy what Truckee has to offer. In addition to being an ideal hub for outdoor recreation, this vibrant town offers a wealth of shopping, dining and historical venues sure to entertain the likes of the "indoor enthusiast" as well. As an alternative to playing in the snow, quaint historic downtown Truckee offers a blend of distinct shops and restaurants, as well as significant sites to visit. The shopping includes everything from stylish boutiques to rustic antique stores.
The restaurants present a variety of tastes sure to please any palate, from casual après ski fare to elegant, sophisticated cuisine. A quick stop by the Truckee Donner Chamber of Commerce/Visitor Center, conveniently located in the center of the historic downtown, will provide visitors with a list of historical attractions, all within walking distance, to visit in this old-west town.
Truckee is just 40 miles from Reno Tahoe International Airport, two hours from Sacramento, and three hours from San Francisco with easy access off of Interstate 80. Contact the Truckee Donner Chamber of Commerce at 530-587-2757 or visit www.truckee.com for further information.
