    Step back in time to the California Gold Rush era

    Jamestown is a former California Gold Rush town, now turned California Historical Landmark. Explore it's feverish prospecting past by walking the Victorian-era streets or seeking out your own treasure by going gold panning. Check out the 19th-century steam locomotives or even become part of the crew for the day. Saddle up to an authentic saloon, where you can order up a whiskey, or just stick with that delicious California wine. Add in 264 days of sunshine, hiking, wildlife and a trout hatchery, and it's no wonder Jamestown vacation rentals tend to book up quickly.

    Staking a claim on old-fashioned Gold Fever fun

    Every good forty-niner searches endlessly for his treasure, so what would a trip a to Jamestown be without trying your luck? If you don’t hit pay dirt at the casino, maybe a gold panning adventure will produce your bonanza. Meander along historic Main Street where you’ll come across Victorian architecture, antique shops, galleries and old-fashioned mercantiles. Take a seasonal 45-minute ride on a diesel locomotive or a historic steam train, where you’ll pass by the Petticoat Junction water tower from the 1960s TV show. End the day a saloon-style bar or enjoy an evening of California wine tasting. Cheers!

    I think I can, I think I can. Yes, you can drive a train.

    Don’t just pass by the National Hotel & Restaurant established in 1859, go on in and sit a spell, while taking in the authentic architecture and the Gold Rush-era decor. See the restored 1898 Jamestown Jail, have a quaint picnic in Rocca Park, or check out the steam-driven locomotives at Railtown 1897 State Historic Park, where you can even be part of the hands-on engine or fire crew for the day. With so many historical attractions and things to do, it's no wonder Jamestown vacation rentals are so popular, especially with visitors still seeking their fortunes. Good luck!
