Memorial weekend has come and gone and welcomed summer in the Coloma Valley. Soaring temperatures over the coming weeks beckons locals and visitors to all forks of the American River. Memorial weekend is historically a kickoff to the “busy season” for the whitewater industry, particularly the South Fork American River, one of the most heavily rafted sections of river in the West.
Not just the whitewater industry is busy, the whole community is too. Those enjoying the communities beloved river need to eat and recreate. After getting off the river grab a bite at one of many local eateries, from quick and easy take out to fine dining there is something for everyone. While you wait for your whitewater photos grab a treat and take a hike on one of the many trails along Highway 49. Love wine and food, stop by one of the local wineries or farms to take home goodies to enjoy. The Coloma Valley has something for everyone.
