Top 11 Neighborhood Amenities in Folsom, California

Folsom lies in Sacramento County, California. It is a city that displays the charm of a small town alongside modernized amenities. The city contains small and large international corporations and gorgeous neighborhoods with family-oriented mindsets. Excellent schools, shopping, dining and entertainment options can be found as well. Residents are warm, friendly and gracious. The community values integrity and civic responsibility, making Folsom the perfect place to live, work and play.

One really cool thing about Folsom is the interlocking trail system. You can ride a bike or walk/run from any neighborhood all the way over to the American River Parkway. All of the neighborhoods, except the older ones (historic & central) have sidewalks, so walking is very pleasant. It's even safe to do so at night. Alone. So, if you are active, it's a great place to be.
