Famous attractions like Yosemite National Park and Lake Tahoe offer breathtaking examples of our state’s natural abundance, while just a short drive away, local vineyards in the Sierra Foothills serve up wines of abundant flavor and variety.

Ghost towns still dot the area, serving as reminders of the Wild West.
