DirectionsThe Sacremento International Airport is approximately 1hr drive to the heart of Grass Valley. Three easy highways, Highway 5 South to 80 East to 49 North and you are there!
The Reno airport is a bit longer, 1.5 hours to Grass Valley, but a nice drive through the mountains. I prefer Sacremento. If you choose to take a Lyft or Uber the cost is around $60.
