Copperopolis, CA…There was lots of talk about the anniversary of the Back to the Future film last year – but very few places can claim to have a picturesque town square just like the one in the fictional Hill Valley. Copper Town Square has the period clock tower as well as the central park, so if you haven’t stopped into Copper Town Square as you enter the county, now is a good time.
