Welcome to Amador City, a charming gold rush town located just minutes from the Shenandoah Valley wine region along historic Highway 49. in California's Gold Country. One of California’s smallest incorporated cities, with a population of just over 200 residents, Amador City is a little city with a lot to offer.
Original mining-era buildings are now home to unique shops including antique stores, boutiques, art galleries, wine tasting and museums. Gastronomic options include an artisan bakery, old-fashioned soda fountain and lunch counter and gourmet lunches and dinners. The Imperial Hotel affords visitors an opportunity to stay the night and enjoy Amador City’s Gold Country small town way of life.
Amador City hosts a variety of special events including the All American Porch Sale in June, Wine, Art and Music Summer Social in July, Big Wheels Extravaganza in September, and Calico Christmas in December featuring a Merchant Open House, caroling, candle light processional through town and the Tree Lighting.
In addition to great shopping, visitors to Amador City can enjoy other attractions such as miles of creek-lined back roads perfect for a relaxing walk or bike ride, wine tasting at more than 40 Amador County wineries, additional shopping in nearby Sutter Creek and Jackson, live theater, golf courses, fishing and gold panning.
