Grass Valley Places

TripWhat's travel guide to Grass Valley; our list of the best things to see, including Diegos, Empire Mine State Historic Park and South Pine Cafe.
  • The best place in Grass Valley: Diegos


    217 Colfax Ave
    Open Monday through Saturday. Fun mismatched decor, and pleasant staff. The bread balls they start you off with are melt in your mouth delicious and go perfectly with the dipping sauce and garlic butter that accompany them. The Agave wine margaritas are quite refreshing.
  • Empire Mine State Historic Park

    10791 East Empire St.,Grass Valley. Ca. 95945
    Empire Mine is the site of the oldest and richest gold mine in California. Despite having only 20% of the available gold extracted (5.8 million ounces of gold by weight) the mine closed in 1956 after 106 years of production and now is preserved as a California state park. The visitor center has diagrams and models of the mine itself, and numerous items of mining machinery are on show inside the park. Visitors have the opportunity to enter the top of the mine shaft itself and an underground train tour is coming soon (2008/9). The state park also has many miles of riding, walking and mountain biking trails.

  • South Pine Cafe

    South Pine Cafe

    102 N Richardson St Grass Valley, CA 95945
    Excellent slightly alternative restaurant. Be prepared to wait a short while at the weekend, but be assured the food is worth it. Try the the "south pine sampler", but be aware the Louisiana Hot Sausage can be fiery. The menu has lots of variety-options for vegetarians and carnivores. Great selection of liquid to wash down your meal, from fresh squeezed juices to beer and wine.
  • The Owl Grill and Saloon

    134 Mill St
    Casual, welcoming atmosphere. Live music on select nights. The Billy Blue Bread is a magical partnership of garlic and blue cheese and the beer battered french fries have a deliciously subtle fish flavor. Good selection of beer on tap, plenty of wine and lots of the hard stuff. Order food in the bar or venture into the restaurant.
  • Golden Gate Saloon

    212 W. Main St
    Located in the Holbrooke Hotel, the Golden Gate Saloon is known as the oldest continuously operating bar west of the Mississippi. Live music Wednesday through Saturday nights. Happy hour Monday through Friday 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm. They have a good selection of beer, wine, and liquor, and a relaxing atmosphere - sit at a table in the window for some good people watching.
