Welcome to Truckee!

The town of Truckee may not be a household name, but its colorful history, breathtaking vistas and outdoor adventure appeal makes this northeastern California town a must-see destination. History can be revisited at Donner Memorial State Park and Emigrant Trail Museum, which commemorate the crossing of the Sierra Nevada Mountains by early settlers. Thanks to the ingenuity of innovative Truckee residents, year-round playgrounds were created, incorporating the area's dramatic natural terrain and prevailing weather conditions. Visitors now enjoy summer activities that include horseback riding with Northstar Stables, fly fishing with Cyber Fly and water skiing on nearby Lake Tahoe. On a winter vacation to Truckee, skiing and snowboarding on the local hills are popular activities, as well as cross-country skiing and taking a scenic snowmobile tour. Throughout the year, a mix of local galleries, unique shops and restaurants await a visit from travelers.
