Northern California - Gold Country & Central Valley (Chapter)
This is the Gold Country & Central Valley chapter from Lonely Planet’s California guidebook.
Gold Country is where it all began – the drowsy hill towns and oak-lined byways of today’s quiet road trip belie the wild chaos of California’s founding. Today, this 400-mile-long green strip of the Central Valley is America’s most agriculturally productive region.
