El Dorado Hills Reviews
Moving from the Bay Area (Santa Clara) 4 years ago we did a ton of research on areas near Folsom Lake. We fell in love with El Dorado Hills mostly because of the amazing neighborhoods, friendly people, endless recreational opportunities and great schools. We were getting very tired of the endless traffic, rude people, crappy public schools and EXPENSIVE homes in the Bay. El Dorado Hills has been a breath of fresh air! So much weight has lifted from our stressed out life in the Bay. Our favorite parts of El Dorado Hills now that we've lived here is the amazing community involvement and schools, all the recreation SOOO close by, biking, hiking, Folsom Lake boating, fishing, camping, wine tasting, fun community events, and the list goes on. Negatives PG&E, going solar though. Summer Afternoons can get HOT at times but it cools off at night and in the morning even mid-summer, it's really not bad at all. Google James Peterson El Dorado Hills Realtor for some awesome area content.
It is always clean and there is always things to do! During the winter our district church has just opened up a ice rink with all the profits going towards those that have taken affect by the recent fires in California. It also holds multiple farmers markets throughout the year to help sell local food, clothes, decorations, jewelry, and more! Theres nothing I love more than everyone getting together to watch the lighting of the Christmas tree, the July 4th fire works, or even to help scout out for someones lost animal. There is constant help spreading through the Neighborhood app. We are always there for one another when one is in need for something simple like perfect place for breakfast or something big like helping a girl raise money for her cause. We really share a bond and sense of community with everyone. Which is why we are ALL proud to live in such a great neighborhood.
El Dorado Hills is an amazing community to grow up in. I've lived here for the majority of my life and have experienced the good and the bad that the community has to offer. As a politically liberal student, it has been hard being surrounded by generally widespread conservative political views, even in school. However, being a short drive from Sacramento gives residents an opportunity to experience more cultures, diversity, and participate in more liberal politics. The public schools are amazing. I have attended Oak Ridge Elementary School, Rolling Hills Middle School, and am about to graduate from Oak Ridge High School. All three of the schools have given me a multitude of educational opportunities and have supported me and allowed me to grow as a person and student. I wouldn't have wanted to grow up anywhere else.
