Visit Your “go to” guide for summer travel

THE SIERRA FOOTHILLS AND TRUCKEE-TAHOE are home to some of America’s best attractions, and we have a new guide to help you: Our magazine’s new website customized for smartphone reading. Just type into your iPhone or smartphone:

The site first prompts users to share their exact location and then provides information on attractions and venues that are in close proximity. It is integrated with nationally known Trip Advisor and Open Table, as well as our own reviews, archived magazine articles, timely blog posts, photos and videos.

Highlights include directories and GPS mapping for dining and nightlife, wine and beer tasting, lodging, event venues, spa and wellness centers, art galleries and theaters, visitor attractions and parks, real-time road conditions from CalTrans, and pet-friendly travel. Here are some examples:

Our website will guide you to wineries in the region—from Naggiar’s Tuscany-style tasting room and vineyards off Hwy. 49 to the flowering terraces of Pilot Peak in Penn Valley. Or pack a picnic and visit Solune and Montoliva along the Colfax Highway.

We list attractions in Tahoe, ranging from the Treetop Adventure Park and Ropes Course near Tahoe City to the Tahoe Maritime Museum and Hellman-Ehrman Mansion on the West Shore.

A regional events calendar is included to help you book a performance at The Center for the Arts in Grass Valley or buy tickets in advance to the Nevada County Fair.

Our mobile website will help you find a place to eat, sleep or get a massage. For example, you can book a reservation at Monkey Cat in Auburn when you’re traveling to or from the Bay Area or Sacramento.

Our new website has received attention from Visit California, the state’s official consumer website: “New for summer 2014, Sierra FoodWineArt magazine has launched a new, mobile-friendly website designed to be an on-the-go guide for visitors when they’re traveling the Sierra Foothills region.”
