» Have a Sarsaparilla

Step back to the 1800s at Columbia State His­toric Park, with its wood­planked side­walks, his­tor­i­cally cos­tumed shop­keep­ers and strict “horse-drawn ve­hi­cles only” pol­icy.

» Ap­pel­la­tion Trail

» Ap­ple Watch

Al­low the aroma of freshly baked ap­ple pies, frit­ters, turnovers and strudel to lure you off High­way 50 east of Plac­erville to a place called Ap­ple Hill. More than 50 grow­ers par­tic­i­pate in a cel­e­bra­tion of the ap­ple har­vest— and of au­tumn it­self—with cider, hayrides, pump­kin patches, hay mazes and other fam­ily fun. It runs from La­bor Day to Christ­mas.
