Apartments in Folsom -- Sitting Among-st a Wide Range of Natural and Historic Beauty

 

 

If you head about 30 minutes northeast of Sacramento on Route 50, you'll end up in Folsom. If the name sounds familiar, you're probably a Country music fan! Yes, this is the same Folsom that Johnny Cash wrote about in the late 1950's hit "Folsom Prison Blues".

 

 

Even though the Folsom Prison may be the most talked-about sight in town, this city has an awful lot to offer besides it. While there aren't nearly as many people living here as there are in Sacramento, Folsom isn't short on great things to see, do, and experience.

 

 

Here's what you can look forward to if you decide to rent an apartment in Folsom, CA:

 

 

- Natural beauty

 

 

The Folsom Dam was built to prevent flood-waters from reaching the Sacramento Valley, but its construction also created Folsom Lake. As the peaceful water laps up against the Sierra foothills, you'll forget that you're in the middle of one of California's most populated counties. Instead, you'll be too busy hiking, biking, fishing, camping, or enjoying a peaceful picnic!

 

 

The Folsom Lake State Recreation Area is open to the public year-round, and while you're enjoying your time here, take a moment to look at Folsom Powerhouse off in the distance. It may not be a natural wonder, but up until the 1950's, it was an electrical wonder that the rest of the country marveled at!

 

- Plenty of chances to exercise

 

 

If you're going to rent an apartment in Folsom, you'd better buy a bike to go along with it! Folsom has actually received national recognition for being so bike-friendly. More than 30 miles of bike trails wind around town, so this is the perfect place to get a workout that looks as good as it feels. And, because there are trails in every length and difficulty level you can imagine, you can customize your workout routine to meet your exact specifications.

 

 

If you'd rather jog than bike, Folsom offers some great options. There's a bridge that goes over Lake Natoma, a historic truss bridge, and even a pedestrian bridge along the Johnny Cash Trail. That way, it's easy to mix up your workout whenever you want!

 

- Great schools

 

 

If your kids will be sharing your new Folsom apartment with you, you can rest easy knowing that the Folsom-Cordova Unified School District is rated very highly. In fact, Newsweek has repeatedly listed Folsom High School in the top 1% of high schools in the entire country! And, for more advanced education, your kids won't even have to leave town, since Folsom Lake College has state-of-the-art facilities and always seems to be building more.
