Susanville is located in the northeastern California, where the sky is open, the hills are green & the air is clear. Surrounded by lakes, forests and the deserts of Nevada, this is the largest town for 100 miles any direction. The high country where deserts meet forests. This is NorCal cattle country, so don't be expecting many vegetarian restaurants, although they do have a good share of Chinese Food: try the Happy Garden!
