Auburn Welcome Center

Auburn Welcome Center

Placer County is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, wine connoisseurs, epicureans, and history buffs alike. Though Placer County is famous for its rich Gold Rush history, there is as much “gold” in modern-day activities as the famous American River that flows through the canyons.

In Placer County you can hike among pine trees, raft the glorious rivers, mountain bike in the endurance capital of the world, and then picnic under live oaks with a bottle of Mediterranean-style wine all in one day.

If it is a leisurely pace you desire, sip wine at an award-winning winery in the central county communities of Auburn, Newcastle, and Loomis, tee up at one of the many pristine golf courses, or sail the emerald waters of Lake Tahoe’s north shore. And finally, if history is what you are looking for, Placer County is rich with a bounty of museums and historic sites.

Well-behaved dogs are allowed on leashes in the Welcome Center plus there is an area nearby for your pup to walk or run. Of course, there is a classic DogTrekker water bowl for drinking.

Shoppers love the large selection of boutiques, specialty shops, and farmer’s markets. Everyone enjoys the variety of restaurant choices from fine cuisine to family-style dining and the range of lodging and accommodations from luxurious to quaint and romantic.

Allow the past to catch up with you as you visit our many antique shops and unique museums. Let a drive through these rich agricultural lands refresh and revitalize you. Feel pride in the heritage as you attend one of the fine festivals.
