Established in 1863, Truckee is rooted in California history and tapped into contemporary living, with a rich local community. Historic downtown gives a solid nod to years past while offering dining and shopping opportunities to suit many moods, budgets, and audiences. Enjoy fine dining or fries and a grass-fed burger, grab a pint of local craft beer or a glass of wine, or mix with locals at a bustling café. Shopping spans fashion, local craft and design, and nationally recognized fine art, as well as all the staples you need for everyday life.
Truckee’s location is the sweet spot for year-round recreation: spectacular downhill and cross-country skiing, golfing, boating, and a stunning variety of running, hiking, and mountain bike trails. Lake Tahoe is a quick jaunt up the hill, past Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley ski resorts, and Tahoe Donner & Donner Lake are just next door. You’re in close proximity to Reno and the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, and just a few hours from the San Francisco Bay Area.
An engaged, active community calls Truckee home; there’s always something happening, and a variety of lifestyle services and activities available. In the summer months, enjoy Music in the Park on Wednesdays, and stroll Truckee Thursdays, which transforms downtown to a festive atmosphere with food, art, and music. Participate in a fundraising gala, craft workshop, or athletic event. Relax with a massage or tune in with a yoga class. Truckee is a quintessential mountain town, infused with modern outdoor living sensibilities.
