“It’s as charming as any town could be with that Western flair, there’s a certain energy here that is so special” -HGTV

Truckee, the heart of the Sierras, boasts big city offerings in a charming mountain town setting. Truckee’s backyard is home to premier ski resorts, hiking trails, water sports, and biking trails while the downtown offers a wide variety of restaurants, local art galleries, music, and parks. Whether visiting, working, or living here, you will find everything you need.

In addition to claiming the title of Curbed Cup Ski Town of the Year, Truckee also topped a nationwide ranking of communities using strategic steps to increase infill development.

One of the great coups of Truckee is that its master plan focused on infill growth starting in the late 1990s. That laid the groundwork for the town to find incentives to revitalize its downtown instead of building out the surrounding areas.  Truckee has set a high bar for other mountain communities to follow in incentivizing infill development rather than sprawl that consumes green space.   Learn more about the town of Truckee

"It's still got the rough and tumble rustic vibe, but this old town ain't so sleepy - it's wide awake. This place is hopping with great restaurants and bars, live music, unique shops and quite the cultural experience." - HGTV
