At the eastern end of Plumas County, the Portola and Graeagle area welcome visitors with shops, dining and golf, lots of golf! Portola’s Western Pacific Railroad Museum welcomes visitors from near and far. In downtown Graeagle all the store fronts and businesses are painted red and wind along beautiful Highway 89 through town. Surrounded by the splendor of the Sierras, it’s hard to go wrong in this neck of the woods.

The Great Getaway to Downtown Quincy
If you are looking for a date night, downtown Quincy has a lot to offer. Quaint cafes, fine dining, cozy lodging and entertainment opportunities make for a great reason to spend the night.
There is plenty to do in this area and the local chamber has a host of brochures to send you on a hike, bike ride or other adventure.
The town of Quincy is lined with quaint shops and dining opportunities. For breakfast you might want to try Morning Thunder. It is right next to Moon’s (my absolute favorite for dinner downtown.) If an authentic Mexican dinner sounds good head to the top of the hill on Highway 70 to Mi Casita. Mario and his family welcome you for authentic cusine and some really great burgers too!
At Pangea Cafe and Pub you will often find local musicians jamming up front.  Two theaters, Quincy Town Hall Theater and West End Theater also offer performances. There are a few spots downtown if you are looking for a little more night life. The Plumas County Arts Council keeps a full calendar of events at Visit theater websites at and
