Truckee is located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California, just west of the Nevada state line. Interstate 80, the major east-west trans-Sierra "all weather" highway, passes through the town on its way between California and Nevada. Truckee is the gateway to the North Lake Tahoe resort areas of Tahoe City, Kings Beach, Incline Village, and various ski resorts including Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Northstar-at-Tahoe. But after the snow has melted and the spring and summer months start to warm up the area, Truckee is a popular destination for the seasonal visitors who enjoy spending their days away at the lake or enjoying a few rounds of golf at the local course. As a perfect getaway for vacationers, first-time homeowners, investment property owners and empty nesters, there's simply no other place like Truckee, California.
