El Dorado County

El Dorado County in California is an area known for its robust natural beauty and close proximity to some of the hottest destinations in the Golden State. As it’s a relatively short drive from Sacramento, it has become an increasingly popular spot for families, young adults and retirees who enjoy being close to a large metro area, yet immersed in gorgeous surroundings.

Consisting of 1,805 square miles of gorgeous hills and mountainous terrain, the El Dorado County website describes the region’s geography as follows:

“The County’s western boundary contains part of Folsom Lake, and the eastern boundary is also the California-Nevada State line. The County is topographically divided into two zones. The northeast corner of the County is in the Lake Tahoe basin, while the remainder of the County is in the ‘western slope,’ the area west of Echo Summit. This landscape invites residents and tourists alike to enjoy outdoor recreation activities year round.”

The most populous city in El Dorado County is South Lake Tahoe, which sits right on the border of Nevada. South Lake Tahoe is home to Heavenly Mountain Resort, a popular destination for skiers and snowboarders from all over the country. The temperatures are relatively mild year round, reaching an average of 80 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer and an average of 43 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter.
