      Nice City Full Of Diversity

      Living in Grass Valley, CA was a great experience for my family and I. This city falls between Sacarmento and Reno, NV, which is a city full of fun and casinos, we were able to travel back and forth in between cities. We had family in Sacramento and we travel to Reno, NV for fun. For some reason this city has a higher than average cost of living compared to many other cities around California. There is also a wide range of diversity within the city.

      The best places in Grass Valley, CA was the diverse range of restaurants offered. Some of my favorite places were South Pine Cafe service American Traditional Foods, Diego’s Restaurant and Ramen On Main Street. Most of the restaurants are found on or around Main Street. I thought the weather was nice, but some days it was hotter than others and very dry. If you don’t mind the heat than this city is very tolerable.
