Between Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park, in the heart of the Motherlode, you will find an abundance of fascinating and fun activities, the finest bed and breakfast lodging accommodations, and scenery that is naturally exquisite ... drawing visitors from as near as San Francisco and as far away as Japan, Australia, and the European nations.

Tuolumne County, home to Yosemite, is located in California's historic Gold Country - featuring the towns of Sonora, Columbia, Jamestown and Twain Harte.

Imagine walking through well-preserved historic towns filled with vintage shops and galleries. Picture yourself participating in living history experiences, paying a visit to Railtown where you'll see turn-of-the-century steam trains, or relaxing at a live show in one of Sonora's acclaimed theaters. And then there is river rafting on world-class white water, hiking, biking, rock climbing, spelunking, gold panning, snow skiing ... and so much more!

We offer diversity of bed and breakfast inns. Each of our recommended inns is distinctive in its setting, ambiance, decor, cuisine and style of hospitality. You will discover an inn tucked within an historic downtown neighborhood and one in a quiet forest hollow. Another B&B hotel is on the Main Street of the Gold Rush hamlet of Jamestown. One is an country inn set among flowered acres of exquisite meadows. All of these Gold Country Bed and Breakfast Inns have been inspected and approved for membership in the lodging association, thus offering travelers a quality lodging experience in the California Gold Country towns of Sonora, Jamestown and Twain Harte.

Allow your mind to wander into yesteryear as you see such place names as Chinese Camp, French Flat, Poverty Hill, and Mi Wuk Village. Highway 120 offers year-round access to Yosemite National Park. Our county features Yosemite's Tuolumne Meadows – exquisitely beautiful! The Emigrant Wilderness encompasses several thousand square miles. The elevation ranges from 1,405 feet in Jamestown to 9,628 feet at Sonora Pass. With a population under 60,000 residence, Tuolumne County is one of the least populated counties in California.
