Things to Do

From water sports, cycling, and scenic views to historic sites, premium outlet shopping, good food, and the infamous Folsom Prison, Folsom is a fantastically diverse hub of outdoor activities and cultural attractions in northern California. In fact, there are so many things to do in Folsom, you may have to extend your stay!
Do you need to be in the area to attend one of our many Folsom events or regional festivals? We’re not only ideally located near Lake Tahoe, but we’re also on the doorstep of the Sierra Foothills, one of the best wine regions in California. If you’re looking for things to do in Folsom to keep the kids entertained, a few of our favorite activities include visiting the nearby family-friendly museums and local zoo.

You can also 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.
