It’s no wonder why Truckee was named as “One of America’s Best Small Ski towns,” by Travel and Leisure. The small skiing community close to Lake Tahoe offers endless recreation and getaway options. This is a one-stop shop for those looking to escape the confines of the real world for a few days. However, for those that live in Truckee, it could almost be describes as a lifelong vacation. In downtown Truckee you will find dozens of independently owned and operated shops and eateries. Live entertainment, historic walking tours, local artists and one of a kind gifts and clothes offer an irresistible draw for both tourists and locals alike.
