: Located in Columbia Village on Parrotts Ferry Road (hwy E18), 1 mile off hwy
49 north of Sonora.
An old preserved Gold Rush town with several tourist attractions, kids will
find this as a place to spend some time.
note: Parking and entrance to Columbia State Historic Park are free, you have a
large parking lot just before the main street.
thoughts: This is not a must visit location but rather place to stop on the way
for short time, if you are traveling with small kids you can spend here more
preserved Gold Rush street has several buildings with few attractions. We came
early so most were close, so we just saw the building from the outside and
visit the blacksmith store that was already open.
different activities for kids (like finding gold, visit the Saloons, and few
other stores …), check the website for more information.
