ABOUT THE PLACER LAKE TAHOE FILM OFFICE
Placer County is located
in Northern California, just a quick one-hour flight from Los
Angeles. Placer County extends from the North Shore of Lake Tahoe,
westward across the Sierra Nevada, through the Mother Lode/Gold
Rush region, and into the Central Valley to the doorstep of
Sacramento, the State's capital. Interstate 80, which crosses the
Sierra and runs through the heart of our county, links two major
airports and provides convenient access to any part of the county.
That short one-hour flight puts you in the Sacramento
International Airport, near the west end of the county, or the
Reno/Lake Tahoe airport, near the east end. Three smaller airports
within the county - at Auburn, Lincoln, and Truckee - give you
further convenient access.
