The Truckee Travel Guide will prove that boredom is NOT an option in Truckee, California!

Welcome to Truckee Sign - outside Truckee Post Office

Welcome to Winter!

The seasons have changed, and we are now in Winter! So many people look forward to the Truckee Winter Activities that are so fun!

Whatever the Truckee Season of the year, there is plenty to see and do in Truckee. From the unbelievable beauty of the Mountains surrounding Donner Lake and the area, to the charming Downtown Truckee Commercial Row full of quaint shops and restaurants to explore.

With two Ski Resorts in town (Northstar California and Tahoe Donner), and the Truckee River which provides opportunities for river rafting, fly fishing, and kayaking, countless lakes and beaches, including nearby Lake Tahoegolf courses and hiking & biking trails in abundance, you will never run out of things to do! Truckee is the perfect place to take YOUR California Vacation! 

Truckee is located close to Reno, Nevada, and the North Lake Tahoe cities of Tahoe CityKings BeachIncline Village as well as Olympic Valley where Squaw Valley, USA is located. (Now called Palisades Tahoe) These nearby Cities offer additional shopping, dining, and recreational opportunities!

My family lived in Truckee for four years. We loved it! It is my favorite place to live, and I'm glad that my best friend has a cabin on Donner Lake that we visit as often as possible. We still travel back to Truckee to visit every chance we can get. I would have loved to move back to Truckee or Tahoe City, but unfortunately I'm priced out of the real estate market.


Below, I'm featuring a Truckee Non-Profit Organization or Lake Tahoe Non Profit Organization here, along with their Mission Statement!

Currently, they have I believe 11 Bear Cubs among all their other animals, so donations to help with food and vet costs is always welcome!

Please check out my Truckee Non Profit Organizations and Lake Tahoe Non Profit Organizations pages. Find an organization that touches your heart and get involved - donations, volunteering your time to help, or just helping them spread the word are all appreciated! Everyone can do something to fit their time and budget!

There is always something to see or do, or some fun event taking place in Truckee. (see Event Calendar) There is a great mix of restaurants in town, and lots of options for hotels to stay at depending on your budget. The Truckee Travel Guide will give you all the details you need to make your visit, or vacation a memorable one.

The summer weather in Truckee is perfect, and the fresh air and the smell of pine trees in the air is heavenly! The snow on the pine trees after it stops snowing in winter, and the sun comes out, is just breathtaking! And the leaves changing colors in Fall are gorgeous!

The people in Truckee are so friendly, and the town has a laid back comfortable, and casual atmosphere that makes Truckee the perfect place to vacation and travel to. The stress of day to day living disappears when surrounded by the beautiful scenery in and around the Truckee area.

Whether you travel to Truckee for a day trip or an extended vacation, or are a lucky part-time, or full-time resident of Truckee, some of the activities outlined in the Truckee Travel Guide not to be missed are:
