    Gold country is a small area in northern California. The people are open and kind and the overall atmosphere is very welcoming. I have lived here for two years, having moved from the bay area. Quite possibly one of the best decisions I have made was moving here.

    The area has a really low crime rate. It is a great place to start a family.
