School’s out, summer has officially started and it’s time to go to your favorite swimming hole on the South Fork of the Yuba River. The river is one of our favorite recommendations for things to do in Nevada City, regardless of the season, but the warm summer days make swimming a great family friendly activity. There are a number of magical spots, either at 49 Crossing (pictured here), Edwards Crossing, Purdons Crossing, Washington, Bridgeport, Jones Bar, to name a few. So what are you waiting for? Grab your river gear and enjoy the sunshine! If you need directions to the river, feel free to stop by the Outside Inn’s office, we’re always happy to help figure out which location is best suited for you. And if heading to the river isn’t the right spot for you, we’ve got plenty of other recommendations for places to cool off, click here for a great InnSide Nevada City blog post from last year with some suggestions (kayaking, SUP, swimming pools). What’s your favorite water activity in the Nevada City/Grass Valley area?
