4. Calaveras County
In addition to several hotels to explore, Calaveras County, home to several Gold Rush mining towns and caverns, has its share of haunts for a day trip! Calaveras County has a number of fantastic wineries as well! Check out the Twisted Oak Winery Tasting Room located on the charming Main Street of Murphys to catch a glimpse of the ghost of Norene Troski, the building's former resident. Still exploring? Head to Angels Camp for the Gold Digger’s Saloon, a former brothel; now reportedly haunted.
