THINGS TO DO AROUND AND NEAR PLACERVILLE
For a small city, Placerville has a lot of attractions – and history – to offer to its visitors. Its roots can be traced back to the Gold Rush, when it was still known as Hangtown, by virtue of the fact that it was one of the first places that meted out justice through a hemp rope. Nowadays, it has put its grim past behind it, although its heritage can still be seen in the town’s architecture.
