Oh such a quaint little town...

Pin It Now!

You may remember a couple weeks ago I did a post about the weekend my boyfriend (Mr. C) and I spent in Nevada City...well I'm finally getting around to sharing the rest of this quaint little Northern California town with you! 
Nevada City, California is located in the Gold Country in Northern California.  This is the area where gold was discovered in the 1800s and the first settlers built these cute little towns.  They make the perfect getaway weekend trips for those of us in Northern California. Lots of the old homes have been turned into Bed and Breakfast Inns.

Below is the National Hotel...




This lovely place below is The Parsonage Bed and Breakfast...






This beautiful home was right across the street from the B&B we stayed in...

Here's a closer view....


This shop, called Tanglewood Forest was gorgeous...

This is the oldest theatre in California...





I hope you enjoyed seeing this Northern California town! I would really love to go back for a weekend sometime this month for their Victorian Christmas Celebration but unfortunately I don't think we will have time! Maybe next year...

I was married in the National Hotel while my husband was performing in a play in that theater. Nevada City is very dear to me.

The town is so pretty,It's like stepping back in time. It must be a great place to go when you need a little R&R.

Looks like a lovely place, Cindy, and even a little New Englandesque! Would love to have seen photos of the inside of a B&B. Next time, maybe? Thanks for sharing. Susan

What a sweet little town this is, I'm sure you had a great time exploring it. That white house across from your B&B is adorable! Makes you wonder who lives there, and if they're used to being a tourist attraction, LOL.

What a lovely place. I'm ready to move there! I didn't realize the trees turned and shed their Autumn leaves there, too! I'm from New England and absolutely love the Fall. Thanks so much for the virtual tour!

Like a story book!Very cute little town!

This town is definitely quaint but I still love Petaluma most of all. Whenever I visit my son in San Francisco, I always drive to Petaluma to visit Summer Cottage Antique Mall and then on to Santa Rosa. You do live in a fabulous area. So glad you've found a 'nice guy' through your internet dating experience. Next trip to SFO will include a trip to San Jose and Los Gatos. My 'ex' was born & raised in San Jose, but I've never been there. Do you ever go to Montecito? It's on my 'bucket list' too. Glad you're having fun Cindy!!

It's darling, Cindy. I would love to look in all the houses and inns. Hope you make it back very soon.

I would love to live in a quiet town on a street like this with the little houses and shops all lined up and within walking distance of everything.

Such stunning pictures! I love the old west. It also makes a great place for a quick wedding lol.

I need to head there. It has been years! But I'm guessing it hasn't changed too much?
