Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Because its downtown is modest and its land is primarily farmland, vineyards, and ranches, Rescue’s commercial offerings are understandably meager. The exception that proves that rule is Rescue Raceway, a track for racing RC cars. Over in Shingle Springs, satisfy your sweet tooth at Crepe Town Cafe & Grill, which offers a Croatian wine- and gastro-tour on top of the namesake crepes. In Cameron Park, the Pick-It Fence is very much in vogue: it’s a vintage market comprising the best of several unique vendors’ offerings.
