Welcome to Amador City, a charming gold rush town located between Sutter Creek and Plymouth and just minutes from the Shenandoah Valley wine region along historic Highway 49 in California’s Gold Country.
One of California’s smallest incorporated cities, settled in 1853 and incorporated in 1915, with a population of just over 200 residents. Amador City has a total area of 0.3 square miles (0.78 km2), all of which is land, making it the smallest city in California by size. Amador City is a little city with a lot to offer.
The original mining-era buildings are now home to unique shops, restaurants, an artisan bakery and the Imperial Hotel, Saloon & Restaurant (circa 1878) affords visitors an opportunity to stay the night and enjoy Amador City’s historic Gold Country way of life.
