Summer in Nevada City

It’s really starting to feel like summer in town! With temperatures rising, it’s a great time to hit the Yuba River. We went to a little swimming hole this week and made rock art!


In the back patio at the inn, the daisies are in full bloom! They look amazing growing right above the fire pit. There are so many that we added some to the bouquet from Magickal Florist in the front office.


You can kick off summer by watching the Soap Box Derby on Nimrod St. by Pioneer Park tomorrow from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Don’t forget that Fathers’ Day is on Sunday! Celebrate by bringing dad (and the whole family, really) to the 52nd Annual Nevada City Bicycle Classic, starting at 1:00 p.m. with the Juniors race and the Pros starting at 5:00 p.m. To really make dad happy, bring him to the Pre-Race Brewery Party at the Ol’ Republic Brewery behind SPD.


If you’re looking for more fun activities this summer, check out our June Events blog, or talk to Carla at Nevada County Escapes for any type of adventure or getaway!

It's warming up! Time to use the patio and fire pit!

The backyard at Broad Street Inn is so relaxing. It’s sunny most of the day, yet has shady parts too. We have bistro tables and comfortable outdoor furniture scattered around the patio. Our guests love to use our patio for eating dinner, enjoying a glass of wine, and having a cup of coffee. In the winter, it’s usually too cold to enjoy the patio. Now that it’s warmer, the patio is great in the afternoon to read and sunbathe. If it’s too cold in the evening, we have a heater and a fire pit. The weather hasn’t allowed us to use the fire pit often, until now! If you haven’t seen our fire pit, come by and check it out. Kady Guyton, who is a chef and columnist for The Union newspaper, is hosting a wine dinner in our back patio next weekend. Click HERE for more information. For more pictures, visit out Flickr page.
