From the steep climbs of Armstrong Tract to the open space of Glenshire, Truckee is for families, second-home owners, lifties, bartenders, professional athletes and everyone in between. A melting pot of lifestyles and wage levels, Truckee’s charm rests in its social diversity and its quaint but quickly growing downtown core. A true western railroad town, Truckee has embraced its history by ensuring its architecture and development standards remain as true as possible for a trendy, Instagram-ready mountain town. The neighborhoods in Truckee represent the entire spectrum of home development. There are brand-new, modern row homes along the river; prominent luxury on the slopes above Donner Pass Road; and older, entry-level houses throughout Olympic Heights, Prosser Lakeview Estates, and Sierra Meadows. With multiple retail districts, entertainment options, quirky coffee shops, and of course, easy wilderness access, it’s not hard to understand why Truckee, CA, has earned its reputation as one of the country’s most sought-after adventure towns. Several new developments are underway in town, including two new hotels, workforce housing, and the large-scale commercial and residential downtown extension, the Railyard. Truckee is where you’ll find the majority of local families enjoying life, in homes that range from the high $500s to above $1 million.
