El Dorado County is divided by U.S Highway 50, a major highway that spans the United States. It goes directly through the two incorporated cities in our county: Placerville and South Lake Tahoe, and two growing communities: Cameron Park and El Dorado Hills. To the west Highway 50 connects El Dorado County to Sacramento, Davis, and ultimately San Francisco, which offers major ports to markets worldwide. To the east, Highway 50 connects El Dorado County Carson City, Nevada, which is a short distance from Reno, NV. The Union Pacific Railroad goes through Reno and serves as a conduit to markets throughout the Nation.
