Meetings and Conferences
Nevada County’s geographic location, within a three-hour drive from Sacramento and the Bay Area, makes it an accessible and distinctive location for corporate getaways. Choose from Nevada County’s mid-size hotels, deluxe bed and breakfast inns and campgrounds and our historic catering facilities such as the Miner’s Foundry for an “unconventional” location for your next business meeting, executive retreat, or teambuilding event.
Meeting planners may select from an array of facilities and amenities. Ease of access is a plus with Truckee being just a 45-minute drive from Reno-Tahoe International Airport while Grass Valley and Nevada City are located less than 60 miles from Sacramento International Airport.
The California Gold Country, including a specific mention of Nevada City, was listed #6 among the top 10 travel destinations for 2012 by Lonely Planet.
Truckee is a base camp to numerous world-class ski resorts, including Northstar-at-Tahoe and Squaw Valley USA. Hiking and biking trails weave through the entire county and a number of outdoor recreational companies are available to assist with group excursions. Additional activities include wine tasting and historical sites and tours.
