Autumn in Nevada City and Grass Valley | Visit California

When gold miners poured into the Sierra foothills in the mid-1800s, they fought off homesickness by planting seeds from their hometown trees. That’s why Nevada Street in downtown Nevada City is decorated with century-old sugar maples and American sweetgums (liquidambars) that turn stoplight red in autumn. They’re show-stopping fall foliage champs. Take a stroll around the historic district—the New England ambience is further enhanced by Victorian buildings and a skyward-pointing church steeple.
