Having lived in several different cities, I can honestly say that Rocklin is one of the better ones. Driving around the streets and neighborhoods, you can see they are maintained, clean, and the landscaping is always well tended to. The roads are smooth and painted to clearly see lines, etc.. The parks I have visited are always clean and appear to be well kept. The schools are highly rated. There are many community activities throughout the year. I walk in the morning and night and have always felt safe. Everything, including medical care is a 10 minutes drive away-no freeways!

Rocklin one of the best places to live! It is a great family place, with quiet neighborhoods. I basically have lived here, in Rocklin, my entire life. I started at Breen Elementary School to Granite Oaks Middle School to finally graduating at Rocklin High School in 2015. The community is great with many stores/food places being nearby. After living here for a while, it did get a little boring but Rocklin is such a great place to live in. There have not been too many problems living here. Overall, Rocklin is the place to live in if you are looking to start a family.
Rocklin, CA is a fantastic town to raise a family. The sense of community in this town is incredibly strong and participation is highly encouraged. The public schools are also well rated. In my personal experience, the teachers are wonderful, passionate, caring people who go the extra mile to help their students succeed. Young high school graduates from this area progress to 4 year universities at a very high rate. Furthermore, Rocklin is ideally situated near both the excitement of San Francisco and the natural beauty of Tahoe. The nearby area of Auburn also has beautiful hiking trails available. The area has a great police force that strives to maintain safety for all residents, and criminal activity is almost non existent in this community. The only downsides of living in this community are the limited nightlife available immediately within the town and the relative lack of diversity, although residents can travel a short distance to the city of Sacramento to experience both!
