Truckee prides itself on a love of the outdoors. This appreciation might go back to when brave wagoners made a road through here in the mid-1800s. Learn about their trail-blazing at the visitor centre of the Donner Memorial State Park, which is a good place to find locals doing what they do best — loving the outdoors. Truckee folk also take pride in their culinary scene, so while you explore the historic downtown area, make sure you stop for the good food, wine and beer.
