Why We Love Where We Live

Sonora, CA | A Hidden Gem

The Sierra Nevada Mountains
Our Home Base

Sonora is nestled right in the foothills of the grand Sierra Nevada Mountain range. Take a short drive up the hill to a local favorite, Pinecrest Lake or go even further up the mountain for a camping trip at Kennedy Meadows.

Summer Farmer's Market
Homegrown Goodness

Our summertime farmer’s market is a town highlight! At the market you will find vendors from all over town like Mother Lode Coffee, Cover’s Apple Ranch, Schnoog’s Coffee Shop, and of course a ton of fruits and veggies all locally grown!

Yosemite National Park
You've Got To See It

Just a short 1 hour drive from town is Yosemite National Park! Experience all of the beauty Yosemite has to offer and get inspired by the great outdoors. We can never get enough of this beautiful park!

Columbia Historic State Park
Step Back In Time

Take a step back in time at Columbia Historic State Park and discover how Sonora got here in the first place. Pan for gold, crack open an ice cold sarsaparilla and visit a local favorite; Nelson’s Candy Kitchen!

Dodge Ridge Ski Resort
Hit The Slopes

As much as we love summer’s by the lake or up in the mountains, winter is just as good! You can always find a good time at Dodge Ridge Ski Resort just up the hill from Pinecrest Lake. Imagine snowy days, warm hot chocolate and the best ski slopes around!

Downtown SonoraSomething For Everyone

Downtown Sonora is ever-changing and you can always find something new! We have beautiful antique shops, clothing stores, and some of the best restraunts around. Recently, Downtown Sonora has been home to up and coming craft breweries!
