Sacramento Bee reports Nevada City's 'best river town' honor in Outside magazine

“Magazines thrive on ‘lists,’ and Outside magazine’s latest compilation — Best River Towns — has given a nod to Nevada City,” the Sacramento Bee reported on Monday.

“Credit should go to … the citizens of Nevada City,” the Bee said.

According to the magazine, ‘a whopping 2,539 people — 83 percent of the populace — cast their ballots for this tiny hamlet on the edge of the Tahoe National Forest.’

“Interesting, though: Many of the features that garnered Nevad a City attention aren’t technically in the town proper: the Yuba River, the Tahoe National Forest, the Sugar Bowl ski resort.

“But, hey, all of those attractions are close enough.

“By the way, Sacramento did not get recognized as a top ‘river town,’ but it did get a tiny mention as a ‘write-in candidate.'”

Outside’s list was:

•Richmond, Virginia
•Nevada City, California
•Boise, Idaho
•Durango, Colorado
•Missoula, Montana
•Nashville, Tennessee
•Milwaukee, Wisconsin
•Asheville, North Carolina
•Hood River, Oregon
•Ithaca, New York
