Highway 4 in Calaveras and Alpine counties is one of our favorite routes for a summer road trip, offering way too many attractions and diversions for a mere weekend. A better bet: settle in for a week at a pet-friendly vacation rental. They’re plentiful around Angel’s Camp, Murphys and Arnold, and you’ll find dog-welcoming hotels, B&Bs and other lodging in the area, too. more »

There are many ways to get to the High Sierra, all of them scenic, some a little more leisurely and winding than others. If time permits and you like lots of diversion on a road trip, follow the Golden Chain Highway (aka Highway 49) south through Amador, Calaveras, Tuolumne and Mariposa counties before cutting east through Yosemite National Park and taking Highway 20 (the Tioga Road) up and over 9,943-foot Tioga Pass. more »

The Butte Fire may be history, but it will take many years and lots of resources for residents of the affected areas to get their lives back. Along with our travel partners in Amador and Calaveras Counties, we'd like to send heartfelt thanks to all the firefighters, first responders, and volunteers whose efforts accomplished so much to save lives and homes during this year's horrific fire season. more »

Mark Twain slept here. So did Western adventure writer Bret Harte. You’ll see their names plastered on b usinesses, schools and street signs all over Calaveras County, where dog-friendly communities like Angels Camp and Murphys don’t hesitate to play up their Gold Rush-era legacies. more »
