Amador City

Amador City is a charming gold rush town located just minutes from the Shenandoah Valley wine region along historic Highway 49, in California's Gold Country.

One of California’s smallest incorporated cities, with a population of just over 200 residents, Amador City is a little city with a lot to offer.


Ione is nestled in the beautiful oak covered foothills of the Gold Country. Residents and visitors to Ione enjoy a gentle climate, a pastoral setting with oak trees and farmlands, and a family-oriented atmosphere of a medium sized town.


Plymouth is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range; on Historic Highway 49, just south of Placerville. Every year Plymouth hosts the Amador County Fair.

Sutter Creek

Sutter Creek is named after a saw-mill owner in Coloma; where the first 'Mother Lode' gold was found, in January of 1848.

Sutter Creek Inn:
