Angels Camp California
Angels Camp California is a 1849 gold rush town with a substantial number of surviving 19th century buildings. It's current population of 3,835 fills but doesn't seem to overwhelm the historic core. It was the location and origin of Mark Twain's short story "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County". The town has either maintained or developed a quirky character over the years. It's a fun place to walk around.
