    Apple Hill

    Even the name conjures up images and memories of cider, caramel apples, apple pie, spiced apple cake, christmas trees, and so much more.

    Nestled in the hills above Placerville, California, the town of Camino is better known as Apple Hill - a cooperative of fruit farmers, vintners, craftspeople, brewers, and fun! 

    Park on Boxwood Street (in front of the Bolt) or in the parking lot and then we will carpool to Camino for the day!

    We will make several stops throughout the day, including some of the favorite, as well as some new wineries and other fun places! Please remember that though we may stop by locations which have alcohol and wine, the club asks everyone to be responsible and do not drink and drive.

    Our annual tradition is back - Victorian Christmas Road Trip!  We will traipse and gallavant to lovely Nevada City, for their super fun street fair, Victorian Christmas!

    From their website:

    The enticing aromas of roasted chestnuts and hearty holiday foods fill the air, along with cries of street vendors hawking their wares and lamp-lit streets filled to overflowing with authentic Christmas treasures — hand-crafted candy, jewelry, pottery, perfume, dolls, and over 100 different items in all. It’s the one & only Victorian Christmas-full of new shows, sights, sounds and attractions.

    Welcome the holiday season in style in historic Nevada City, a quaint, Gold Rush town nestled in the foothills of the snow-capped Sierra where each year the town’s picturesque downtown transforms into a genuine Christmas card come to life. It’s a magical setting of hilly streets outlined with twinkling white lights and authentic gas lamps, wandering minstrels and carolers dressed in Victorian attire, and a myriad of visitors sharing holiday cheer and good tidings.

    This annual, family tradition takes place 2 Wednesday evenings and 3 Sunday afternoons in December and features holiday activities for all ages:  carriage rides, live entertainment, savory yuletide treats and libations, and of course, Father Christmas!

    There is oh so much to see, hear, feast upon and experience at Victorian Christmas. Whether you’ve been naughty or nice…we look forward to welcoming the best of the holiday Season with you and yours!

    You can see why we enjoy this event!  Please join us for a fun filled road trip to Nevada City!


    Meet at The Bolt Bar - we can use their parking lot.  Parking can be slightly challenging in Nevada City, and the fewer cars we take, the easier it will be!


    We are going to take a only slightly longer route this year, up highway 70 to highway 20.  It'll take us through some scenic country up to Yuba City, then through Penn Valley to Nevada City.

    • 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

    If there's anything the bears know how to do, it's dessert!

    Well, add some UGLY SWEATERS to that list, too!

    We will be doing our annual holiday dessert party, with the WHITE ELEPHANT GIFT EXCHANGE, so bring those white elephants to get rid of!

    BYOB, club provides water and soda.

    $5 suggested donation, no one turned away for lack of funds.
