Discover California's Gold Country

Home > Plan > Gold Country

Tuolumne County’s Gold Country is rich and alive with thriving Gold Rush towns such as Jamestown, Sonora and Columbia.

Your treasure, new or old, is waiting to be discovered in unique specialty shops or fine art galleries that line historic sidewalks. Enjoy a meal in a historic inn or take in a superior live theatre performance in a venue where shows have entertained for over a century.

There's nothing like a train ride behind the famous Sierra No. 3™, the "movie star locomotive," a ride on an authentic stage coach or gold panning to complete your Gold Country experience.
