The central hub for North Lake Tahoe, Truckee is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts, who want to hit the trails, the rivers, the lake, and three world-class ski resorts— Sugar Bowl, Squaw/Alpine, and Northstar. All of which are less than 15 miles from the historic downtown.
Truckee has numerous neighborhoods, straddling the Truckee River, with homes at a variety of price points to choose from.
The old logging town now has a hipsterish vibe and features chic clothing boutiques, gourmet restaurants, art galleries, and a lively bar scene. The Wall Street Journal recently dubbed Truckee one of the, “Coolest under-the-radar ski towns in the American West.”
