Here, Ordinary Never Stood a Chance

Truckee is one of the few places where you can still see the country. Or rediscover the sky. And the valley. And mountain ranges too beautiful to put into words. There are so many places to commune with nature, bond with your family, or just take a deep breath and get away from the everyday world. Our parks feature everything from nature trails and campgrounds to picnic sites, and scenic lakes and ponds. Hikers and bikers of every level find no shortage of beautiful challenges. You can fish, swim, ski, golf, boat, or just relax and enjoy the blue skies and amazing smell of the pine trees. If the downtown scene is more your cup of tea—Truckee's quaint downtown offers superb restaurants and shops, set in authentic historic buildings.

There is always something to do in Truckee. Just take a look at the links above.
