City of Folsom
Most commonly known as home to the infamous Folsom State Prison, the City of Folsom is located along the beautiful American River Parkway in Northern California. Its roots date back to the gold rush, and the old downtown streets still echo the essence of a western frontier mining town.
Outdoor enthusiasts find everything they need in Folsom to feed their passion for an active lifestyle. Water lovers from all over flock to Folsom for white water rafting in the American River and boating on Folsom Lake. The 50 miles of bike trails winding in and around the city, and an exceptionally temperate climate, mean cycling, running, and hiking are year round sports.
Due to its ideal location between Sacramento and Tahoe, travelers along the Highway 50 corridor consider Folsom the perfect place to stop and do some shopping or grab a bite to eat. Premium shopping, award-winning dining, and over 100 foothill area wineries are just a few reasons Folsom is a favorite destination for locals and tourists alike.
