Auburn, known for California's historic Gold Rush, is approximately 130 miles from San Francisco and 30 miles northeast of Sacramento along Highway 80 in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Home to the county seat of Placer County, this small city is a popular tourist attraction providing the look and feel of the California Gold Rush experienced in buildings from that era. Guests visiting can pan for gold, kayak the American River and tour the fantastic buildings where ghosts of the gold still reside. Nearby attractions include Sacramento and beautiful South Lake Tahoe with gambling casinos such as Harvey's and Harrah's across the Nevada State Line.
