Things to do

Discover Auburn's gold rush legacy

Joss House is another historical gem, built by the Yue family during the gold rush. It's perched on Chinese Hill and offers a glimpse at what life was like for Asian-American settlers.

Craving thrills? In early spring the American River serves up some of California's best white-water rafting.

At the doorstep of the Sierra Nevadas
