Last month we took a day trip to Nevada City, CA. It is a very cute town full of mining history. We strolled around, window shopping. We ate a delicious lunch at Lefty's. Everyone we met loved to talk about their town. There are also some beautiful Victorian homes with cute gardens. We've taken a few day trips to various gold-country towns, and I'd have to say Nevada City is my favorite so far. I liked that there were several stores and a good amount of walking to be done. The boys enjoyed the candy shop - and learned there is such a thing as "too much fudge"!!
