I’ve lived in Folsom for 17 years. I owe a lot to this town. I’ve made friends, I’ve made lifelong relationships, and learned so much here. It wasn’t always easy, but I don’t regret any of my time here.
I like how safe Folsom is. The crimes are minimal or even unheard of. Folsom also offers opportunity for everyone. There are many different sports/ extracurricular events to choose from; almost everybody can do something they love.
Very family friendly and culturally diverse. Great education system and, the sports programs are excellent. Very safe community as well. All of this is coming from a current resident.
Folsom has grown into a nice, family neighborhood. They do keep building which means it will get even more crowded.
This town has a place for everyone and is beautifully up-kept. It is home to many great schools including Folsom High School which has a nationally ranked football team. Unfortunately with the town becoming so popular, the traffic issue is continuing to grow.
Small Town, nice, safe, best place for family. However, recently expend too fast, high school is not big enough.
Good place to grow up. Great schools and a very safe area. Not very good nightlife and not a great place to live for young adults
Folsom is a medium sized town/city with great schools, shops, real estate, and the lake! It’s relatively close to anything else you could want. It’s pretty safe, suburban, and I think a lot of teenagers find it boring after living there their whole lives, but it really is a great place to grow up. We have sutter street, the palladio, and other fun little places to go in town.
Folsom is a wonderful place to grow up! The town has some of the best hiking trails, and is home to some of the friendliest small businesses. Folsom also has a real sense of community with a number of activities put on by the town that are family friendly. The schools in this area work to uplift their students, and with Folsom's low crime rates it is easily one of the best places to raise a family!
It is a very beautiful town and has lots to do. The public education system is amazing and has top notch academics and athletics. It is a very safe and family friendly area with lots to do and many opportunities for growing youth.
Folsom is a very charming town. Close to the city, but far enough to get away from all of the hustle and bustle. Great place to raise a family.
Folsom, while boring for a teenager like me who has lived here their entire life, is a great place to raise kids and start a family from what I have seen. Folsom has kind people and good schools, but the night life is just about nonexistent.
Such a safe area with nice families! Public schools are all very accessible and there are always fun events going on.
Folsom is a wonderful community for raising a family with many parks and facilities, as well as the top schools of the nation.
Folsom is a quaint little town with a lot of rich history. It is right on the American River, and has the famous Folsom Prison (thanks, Johnny Cash). There is so much beautiful nature to explore. It has wonderful places to dine as well as a bustling night life for those interested in that sort of entertainment. I moved here a little over a year ago with my best friend and it was the best decision of my life. The people are very friendly.
Folsom is a great little town for those who love the outdoors. There are many trails to run or walk your dog and get some fresh air. The people are nice and the crime rate is low.
Everything is so close by! You really never have to leave the town because we have pretty much everything you need within a 10 mile radius.
