Truckee is located just west of the California/Nevada boundary, and just off Interstate 80. It's probably the biggest commercial area in that part of the country, but it has a little twist.
Part of the old downtown has been preserved and turned into an historic district. You can walk along the main street and feel a little like you are back in the 1800's. That's fitting for a town that started as a railroad stop once the Transcontinental Railroad was built
The town has done a good job of fixing up the area, making it a good place to stop for lunch and look around for an hour or two. Pictured above it the Truckee Hotel. I'm told that the jail (technically, the Old Truckee Jail Museum) located in the district is worth a visit.
