Truckee is an incorporated town in Nevada County, California, United States. Family-friendly places like Donner Memorial State Park and Emigrant Trail Museum and River Rafting & Tubing will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Incline Village (Sand Harbor & Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park), Meeks Bay Beach (in Tahoma) and Kings Beach State Recreation Area (in Kings Beach). There's lots more to do: hit the slopes at Northstar California, let the kids burn off some steam at Commons Beach Park, take in the views from Rainbow Bridge / Donner Summit Bridge, and glide through natural beauty at Tahoe Donner.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, use the Truckee trip itinerary planning site.

Los Angeles to Truckee is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and train. Plan for much colder nights when traveling from Los Angeles in July since evenings lows in Truckee dip to 40°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
