Welcome the holiday season and travel to historic Nevada City, a quaint, Gold rush town nestled in the foothills of the Sierra. Each year the town’s picturesque downtown transforms into a Christmas card come to life. The aromas of roasted chestnuts and hearty foods fill the air along with street vendors selling their wares. The streets are overflowing with hand-crafted candy, jewelry, pottery, perfume, dolls and many other items. It’s a magical setting of hilly streets outlined with twinkling white lights and authentic gas lamps, wandering minstrels and carolers dressed in Victorian attire.
