The heart of the region rests in the place that used to be called Coburn Station. Now far from a tired railroad town, Truckee is California's premier mountain destination and a national hub for outdoor recreation. Owners from around the country have claimed their stake in this modern, active ski town. Neighborhoods such as Sierra Meadows, Armstrong Tract, and Olympic Heights offer family-friendly, local flavor within walking and pedaling distance of Downtown, the Truckee River, Donner Lake and endless miles of multi-use forest trails.
The Truckee Railyard project, now underway, will extend downtown with new retail and residential, and two in-town hotels currently in development are tangible examples of where Truckee is headed. Buy now, or someone else will.
