Discover California's Gold Country

Tuolumne County’s Gold Country is rich and alive with thriving Gold Rush towns such as Jamestown, Sonora and Columbia.

Tuolumne County’s Gold Country offers an authentic Gold Rush experience with its rich, lively and thriving historic towns such as Jamestown, Sonora and Columbia that bring the Old West back to life. Walk wooden sidewalks and ride the rails behind the famous Sierra No. 3®, the locomotive that starred in hundreds of western movies and TV shows. Your treasure, new or old, is waiting to be discovered in unique specialty shops or fine art galleries that line the streets. Enjoy a meal in an historic inn, take in a superior live theatre performance in a venue where shows have entertained for over a century, or try your luck with 24-hour gaming action.
