Living in Nevada County

Fall is one of my favorite times to be living in Nevada County!  If you are one of the lucky ones that live near Grass Valley or Nevada City, you get to experience the fall color changes on a daily basis.  From green, Apple Hillto yellow, to orange and even sometimes a deep red our beautiful area offers a wide variety of colors this time of year.  In addition to all the colors there is so much to do during fall.

From fall leaf color walks, to hiking to exploring pumpkin patches, apple orchards or even a quick trip to Apple Hill.  Looking for the perfect pumpkin for Halloween?  Grass Valley, Nevada City and Penn Valley offer tons of options from parking-lot pumpkin patches to family owned and operated farms.  We have hay rides, petting zoos and more.

For a nice day trip you can head over to Apple Hill.  What an experience this is; an entire hill side of apple orchards.  Each offering it’s own apples and other unique items from crafts to candy to donuts and more.
