Your Base Camp for Truckee’s Virtual Adventures

COVID-19 may have put a hamper on your travel plans but good news, there are still many ways you can experience Truckee online. While we would love to have you visit, postponing your trip to Truckee helps flatten the curve in our isolated town which has limited resources and is especially vulnerable to a widespread outbreak of coronavirus. So in lieu of your mountain getaway, here are some virtual adventures – ways that you can “visit” Truckee and experience the magic of our town from the safety and comfort of yours.
