Fodor's Review

Visible from the highway and an easy detour on your drive to or from Lake Tahoe, Auburn's standout structure is the Placer County Courthouse. The classic gold-dome building houses the Placer County Museum, which documents the area's history—Native American, railroad, agricultural, and mining—from the early 1700s to 1900. Look for the Thomas Kinkade original painting and the wall safe housing gold nuggets valued at more than $300,000 today.
