Tag: trick or treating in nevada city

In the Sierra Foothills, the neighboring towns of Nevada City and Grass Valley are among the best places to visit in California for a Halloween getaway. Just a few miles apart from one another, the fall colors in both towns are breath-taking. But, perhaps better than the fall colors, is the wide-variety of sweet treats for a mature audience.

There is wine tasting and a wide variety of micro breweries Nevada City and Grass Valley.  There are also a handful of dive bars to explore.  While the dining in both towns is wonderful, the dessert is amazing. This Halloween, skip dinner and go on a search instead for candy, cakes, and ice cream.

To start, try The Chocolate Shoppe on Broad Street in Nevada City. They have a Port Wine Truffle that melts with slow decadence. For something more whimsical try a classic caramel apple or a candy-covered apple.

Next, visit Three Forks Bakery and Brewery for your choice of sweet or savory. This incredible restaurant is a local favorite and no one can decide which is better, the beer or the baked goods.  The menu is based on local availability and in-season produce so you never know what you are going to get.

After lunch, perhaps you’ll want to head to Grass Valley to go antiquing or wander the art galleries. While in Grass Valley, stop by Fable for a cup of coffee or Lazy Dog Chocolateria for some chocolate covered espresso beans.
