Dogs! If you need an idea for getting your people out of town and into the yuletide spirit, consider Victorian Christmas in Nevada City.
Located in the Sierra foothills, Nevada City is a historic gold mining town. Most of the buildings in the historic main street district date back to the 1860s. The place is as cute as a poodle puppy. And the folks there know how to have the Christmas spirit. The streets and Victorian houses are all lighted up; there are carolers, bag pipers, and people in Victorian costume. I even saw a lady dressed up as a Christmas tree. I wanted to lift my leg on her trunk, but my human said no.
Anyway, if you’re a pooch looking for a festive adventure, I give Nevada City four paws and a wag.
