We’ve decided to spend Christmas out of town this year, and are contemplating going to Placerville. We’d be flying into Sacramento and renting a car, and staying for three days. We’re just looking for a quiet getaway from all the Christmas hoopla, and we don’t ski, which means any resort that revolves primarily around skiing would be out. Instead we anticipate taking short road trips in the region, like driving over to Tahoe, or whatever else may be in easy reach. Is this feasible or a good idea? Or should we consider going someplace else? Remember too, that this will be over the Christmas holiday–we want someplace quiet, but not absolutely dead.
I was in Placerville once, at the age of 10, and remember it as a fairly rustic small town with a lot of history. It looks like it would be a good place to go for a few days, especially considering that we’ll have a car and not be bound to the immediate vicinity.
