Great local beer on tap, and good pub food. Great for families. Lots of TVs to watch sports, and a diverse menu so there is something for everyone. Take-and-bake pizzas if you'd rather cozy up the fire in your rental cabin.

A great new addition to the Arnold food scene. Terrific breakfast and lunch, and evening BBQs in the summer. Good coffee, and they have a band shell and a big lawn for summer evening music and wine events.

The best preserved original gold mining town in California. Many original buildings and examples of authentic mining equipment, cute shops, a functioning blacksmith who you can watch work (or purchase a freshly-made metal item), ice cream, restaurants and bars, and you can even pan for gold. A SUPER family day of history, excitement, learning and playing. Something for every member of the family, and an important part of our western story.

The best family-friendly ski resort in the Sierra, and you don't have to drive to Tahoe. Lower prices, smaller crowds, more fun!

A great way to spend the day. During the summer it's a great place to swim or fish. Fall and Spring offer excellent and beautiful hiking trails around the lake.

Such a dramatic and beautiful setting for a picnic or a day of swimming. The water is basically melted mountain snow, so it is refreshingly chilly on a hot day. The water can move pretty fast, so it's better for experienced swimmers ... but probably not a great swimming spot for small kids.

The museum is a fun trip for kids, and you can park here and enter the Arnold Rim Trail ... a beautiful walk through the forest for as long or short as you want to go. The first 3/4 of a mile are paved, and after that it's a well-groomed trail.
