Nice is a small community that sits on the northern edge of Clear Lake in northern California. Clear Lake is one of the oldest lakes in the world, and the largest natural, freshwater lake completely within the state of California. Called the "Bass Capital of the West," it has more than 43,000 surface acres with several "hot spots" to catch Florida strain largemouth black bass, as well as bluegill, crappie and yellow and blue channel catfish. Other recreational activities on the lake include swimming, sailing, water skiing, jet skiing, parasailing and kayaking. Boats of all kinds, as well as jet skis, kayaks, pontoons, pedal boats and rowboats are available for rent around Clear Lake. Special events held at the lake include the annual Splash In Event and the NorCal Boat & Ski Races. Non lake activities near Nice include hiking, biking, rockhounding, gliding, horseback riding, wine tasting and Indian gaming. Nice is also located near the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, and five golf courses are in the nearby vicinity, open year round. All types of restaurants are in Nice and the other communities surrounding Clear Lake, from gourmet to fast food. Vacation rentals, lakeside cabins and cottages and bed & breakfasts are also plentiful, making it a very convenient, full-service vacation resort destination.

Nice Weather & Climate

The Clear Lake area in northern California enjoys delightfully warm weather year round. Summers are not too hot due to the latitude of the region located within the Pacific Coast Mountain Range. A semi-permanent high pressure system in the north Pacific Ocean in summertime holds back storms, which means virtually no rain in summer to spoil outdoor plans. As the system moves southward in winter, storms move into the area. The rainy season generally begins late October/early November and lasts through March. Mild days with cool nights and an occasional light frost are typical of winter in the Clear Lake region. Warm, sunny, dry summers with mild evenings are what you can expect June through September.
