Shingle Springs Neighborhood
Shingle Springs Neighborhood is located about 40 miles from Sacramento in the historic Gold Country foothills and sits directly on Highway 50. The historic towns of Coloma and Placerville are less than 15 miles away. Like many of the other towns in California’s Mother Lode, Shingle Springs grew on the site of a mining camp set up by gold miners during the California Gold Rush, and is now a designated California Historical Landmark.
A blending of old and new typifies the community. Historical monuments sit proudly proclaiming a colorful Gold Rush past, next to a new era of construction. Shingle Springs has taken on the character of a peaceful country community with ranches and homes on acreage enjoying the clean air, rolling uncluttered landscapes and a country-paced lifestyle. The area offers a rural atmosphere with the amenities found in cities close at hand. Several shopping centers provide a wide array of goods and services. Recreational opportunities center around the seasonal climate found in the Mother Lode. Although the area is below the snow, a short drive of 70 miles puts the traveler in the heart of the best winter sports setting of Lake Tahoe. The crystal waters also serve the summer outdoor enthusiast. The American and Cosumnes Rivers and the spacious El Dorado National Forest offer a wonderland of activities year round.
