Placerville Travel Tips

Placerville Vacation Rentals Are Close to Everything

Placerville is located at the foot of the Sierra Mountains, about an hour east of Sacramento. From most Placerville lodging, a quick drive will get you to Apple Hill—also known as El Dorado Orchards—a collection of apple farms where you can sample fresh made cider, purchase handmade crafts, and even pick your own ripe apples right off the tree. Less than an hour away is the Sierra Tahoe Ski Resort for skiers and snowboarders who want to hit the slopes and then come home to a Placerville vacation rental below the snowfall. A few minutes away is the Red Hawk Casino for travelers who like to gamble, and also nearby is American River rafting. You can rent a raft big enough for a group of friends or a family and float the green river at your leisure.

Experience Gold Fever with Placerville Vacation Rentals

Come visit the place where gold was discovered. Close to your Placerville vacation rental, Marshal Gold Discovery State Historic Park provides hours of fun. Wander their museum and check out the volunteers dressed in period costumes. You can buy a gold pan and test your luck searching for nuggets in the river bed just like the settlers did in the 1800s. Fool’s gold is a more common find—but still a fun one, especially for kids. Gold Bug Park and Mine in Placerville—the only open to the public gold mine in the state—is another place to fulfill your gold cravings. Bring the kids for a picnic, a hike, and some California history.

Eat Well in Placerville

Visitors staying in Gold Country High Sierra cabins still need a place to order good food. Try breakfast or brunch at Sweetie Pie’s, a small local favorite, and try Old Town Grill or Cafe Luna for later day meals that are also highly-rated.
