What is there to do in Amador County? The answer is easy: just about anything! Popular outdoor activities include whitewater kayaking through the Mokelumne River Canyon, skiing and horseback riding at Kirkwood, lake and stream fishing, come for the flowers at the Flower Farm or Daffodil Hill and spelunking at nationally acclaimed caves like Black Chasm.
If a more relaxing experience is your style, Amador County is home to three local theatre companies, including two outdoor amphitheatres for seasonal productions. Historic Main Street shopping districts with their covered sidewalks and quaint alleys are stocked with eclectic shops offering antique and vintage items, and artisan wares that include jewelry, pottery, home furnishings and more. Don’t forget wine tasting! Sprinkled throughout the county are family wineries and tasting rooms, with more than two dozen in the Shenandoah Valley alone.
