Empire Mine and State Park is one of the most beautiful places in the Sierra Nevada foothills!!! I have attended several weddings here, and folks talking the walk down the isle of wedded bliss have many a beautiful spot to choose from!! The autumn is especially lovely here. They have guided tours of the grounds, including the home that was occupied by the owners of the mine. The tour will leave you feeling amazed!! The staff are very knowledgeable and helpful as well. Highly recommend for all ages!!!!
