What to do in Nevada City? I get this question every day at the Outside Inn and often I ask folks, tell me a little bit more and I can help send you in the right direction. What I love is that our guests end up getting out and about and doing so many cool things.
An ideal day of being a tourist in Nevada City would include some food, playing outside and just one of the many activities in our area. Start with breakfast at South Pine Cafe, can’t beat the Blackstone Benedict and fresh squeezed OJ. To work off your food take a stroll down to the Deer Creek Trail suspension bridge. Dash through town and either pick up a few treats, pack a picnic to head down to the river. The wildflowers at Buttermilk Bend are perfect at this time of the year, or head out to Ananda and check out the tulips at the Hermitage Gardens. For an afternoon pick me up there are a number of beverage options (coffee, juice bar, wine or beer depending on your preference) and then get dinner before hitting the town. Whether you’re looking for live music, wine tasting or an event, there’s always something happening in Nevada City and Grass Valley.

So, since I think everyone should get out and explore– I’ve got a fun giveaway for the upcoming Nevada City Film Festival Winter Comedy Show, coming to the Miners Foundry this Saturday night, April 4th. The show will feature live performances from Tig Notaro, Tim Heidecker, Nick Thune, and Sara Schaefer. What do you have to win a pair of tickets? Post a comment here on your favorite local thing to do and I’ll announce the winner on Friday, April 3rd.
