“Placerville is wonderful because of it's rich history as a gold mining town, and the El Dorado Historical museum will take you back in time for just a bit. Juxtapose this against the new, fresh modern downtown, and you have a recipe for a wonderful city! Fun, education, and richness! (Free! Last I checked!)”
