Nestled in the Sierra Mountain Range and twelve miles from Lake Tahoe, Truckee is a place rich in history with a quaint downtown home to original shops and upscale restaurants set in authentic historic buildings. Recently listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Truckee, named for a Paiute Indian chief, proudly retains its historic roots. Today, Truckee locals are creating locally inspired art, sophisticated culinary experiences, historical theater and community gatherings. What was once an old mining town has become a mecca for sports enthusiasts as well as world travelers alike looking for a quaint small town mountain experience with a cafe bohemian feel.
Summertime is legendary in Truckee for its recreational bounty. There are several lakes and reservoirs for boating, kayaking, water skiing, swimming, and fishing. The Truckee River and many tributaries offer river rafting, fly fishing and camping. There are endless trails for hiking, running, backpacking, biking, and horseback riding. If golf is your thing, there are fabulous private and public golf courses.
Winter is a magical time in the town of Truckee. With four world class ski areas within 20 miles of Truckee, there is outstanding skiing and snowboarding for all abilities, ranging from the extreme terrain and off-piste skier to the more family oriented intermediate skier. Northstar at Tahoe, Squaw Valley USA, Alpine Meadows, and Sugar Bowl offer all that you have come to expect at a world class ski area.
The Greater Truckee area covers the areas that are just east of Donner Lake to approximately 8 miles east of Downtown Truckee, then south to highway 267 and approximately 4 miles north of highway 89. The proximity to the San Francisco bay area, Reno International airport, and Sacramento adds to the ease of lifestyle that Truckee has to offer.
