The beauty of owning a home in Truckee, which has a population of around 16,500, is that you have all the beauty and majesty of the Lake Tahoe area—access to stunning lakes, trails, rivers, and ski resorts—but none of the isolation of more remote regions. Thanks to Interstate 80, you’re less than an hour from the international airport in Reno, under two hours from the state capital of Sacramento, and around three hours without traffic to the San Francisco Bay Area.
In Truckee, you’ll get the historic feel of a former railway and mining town combined with the modern, upscale comforts of a town that’s seen much development in recent years. In addition to old-school cowboy bars and a still-functioning train station, Truckee has craft and maker spaces, wine bars, craft breweries, and a thriving food and music scene. Street festivals and farmers’ markets take over the main drag in the summertime and you’ll find hip coffee shops on nearly every corner. Getting outside to play year-round couldn’t be easier, from boating on Donner Lake to rock climbing on Donner Summit to downhill skiing at Squaw Valley, Sugar Bowl, or Northstar or cross-country skiing at Tahoe Donner or Royal Gorge, Truckee is home base for adventures of all kinds.
