Folsom Area Guide

Ideally located near Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, and Sierra Foothills wine country, Folsom is a mecca for outdoor recreation in northern California. From water sports, cycling, and scenic views to historic attractions, premium outlet shopping, good food, and of course, the infamous Folsom Prison, there’s no shortage of things see and do for all ages and interests.

Drive just 20 minutes west to California’s capital city, Sacramento, for lively entertainment, unique shopping, and fantastic cuisine. With several parks, greenways, and tree-lined streets, the city is perfect for exploring on foot, or via carriage, which you can catch downtown and ride along Sacramento’s boardwalk-style avenues. And if you’re looking for things to keep the kids entertained, our Folsom hotel is located near kid-friendly museums, and even a zoo!
