Grass Valley, California, USA, is a town located among the natural beauty of Northern California. Although it is a fairly small city, it has the largest population in the area. But not to worry -- it is a central location for lots of activities that the hostel enthusiast will enjoy!

Because it is in the Sierra Nevada mountains, Grass Valley offers plenty of hiking -- when it's not snowing, that is! If you go in the winter months, be sure to get skis or a snowboard to enjoy the mountain snow activities. Grass Valley played a role in the California Gold Rush, so there are historic sites scattered around town from this era.

The kind of travel experience you will have from Grass Valley, California, depends on which way you drive. Driving northwest will take you to the casinos and excitement of Reno, Nevada. Going directly west, you'll end up at Lake Tahoe, a large lake spanning two states where you'll find boating, fishing, swimming, and paddle boarding in the summer. (If you go in the winter, the area transforms into a ski resort.) Heading south will land you in California's historic Gold Country, and eventually to Sacramento, the state capital. The north leads to several National Forests and Lassen Volcanic National Monument, all of which are great for outdoor enthusiasts.

You can stay in Grass Valley if you're looking for a change of pace while traveling between big cities like Reno, Sacramento, or San Francisco, all of which also offer hostels. If you're doing a more rural trip, Grass Valley could become your hostel headquarters, since more remote towns won't have this accommodation option. Because Grass Valley and the surrounding area doesn't have a high population density, you don't have a choice when it comes to Grass Valley, California, USA hostels. You may want to check out camping or motels as alternative options. But with everything to do in the area, you'll probably spend most of your time out and about anyway!
