A mountain paradise!
"I'm thinking of moving back to this little town."
Every time I visit Truckee, it feels like home. I lived here from 1990-2001 and had to move to The Netherlands due to my husband's job for about a year, then moved to San Diego for a little sunshine after one of the most nasty winter's I had ever spent (in The Netherlands). Truckee is a very friendly town, but it has grown in the almost 5 years that I have been gone. The word "Aspenization" comes to mind. I'm sure many of you know what I mean. That being said, there is something almost alive and natively spiritual in the woods, lakes, rivers, mountain peaks here. It brings a sense of connection and a feeling that we ARE all one on the planet and connected to nature in a supreme way. On the more superficial and touristy side, good restaurants abound and there are lots of "cute" shops to spend your money in. There is also lots of sunshine (even in winter, contrary to what many believe that have never lived here), lots of outdoor activities to be done, the arts (of all kinds) are alive and well here, too.
