What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Folsom

Everything is in walking distance. There are also lots of out door activities offered in our neighborhood.

It has amazing schools to offer, especially for sports. Favorite local shops are all in old town, which is also where I enjoy spending time with friends.

It is safe, friends live nearby, parks nearby and grocery stores are within walking distance from it.

I like living in my neighborhood because it's 15 minutes to my work. I like living in my neighborhood because it's 15 minutes from the mall. I like how quite and serine my neighborhood is.

We live in the closest house to our local stores and restaurants. Good school district. Plenty of stores and shopping nearby.

All About

Living in Folsom, CA

If you're searching Folsom apartments in the Sacramento Metro area, you're looking in an area rich with historic charm, notable bridges, an expansive lake and a thriving high-tech industry, all with proximity to Sacramento.

In the heart of Folsom lies its historic district and Oldtown, which has excellent scenery, abundant shopping options and charming Folsom apartments, just north of Lake Natoma. The area is home to more than 60 antique dealers, 40 artisan studios and galleries and the historic powerhouse, which was built in 1895. Most notably, the historic district is where the Folsom State Prison, the oldest prison in California and subject of a popular Johnny Cash song, can be found.

Just north of the historic district, you can get out of your apartments to meet your neighbors at Folsom Lake State Recreation Area, an 18,000-acre park where you can fish, hike, camp, picnic, ride horses, water ski, boat and swim. Folsom Lake, the larger of the area's two lakes, has 120 miles of shoreline, so there's plenty of room for everyone.

When you're not playing at the lake, you might be working at one of Folsom's many area businesses. If you're employed with Intel, Folsom's largest employer, find apartments in south Folsom, near Amos B. Catlin Park or Livermore Community Park. Also in the area is the Hawkins School of Performing Arts, home of the Folsom Lake Civic Ballet. Look for apartments in this part of Folsom if you're interested in taking any of the school's classes, such as ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, acting, strength/conditioning and musical theatre.
