Located just east of Sacramento, Placer County begins at the edge of the central valley, reaching back through the gold country and mountainous peaks to Lake Tahoe. Homes and communities range from bustling suburbs to historic towns. Southwestern Placer is anchored by Roseville, which offers extensive and upscale shopping opportunities at the Galleria at Roseville and The Fountains. The adjacent Loomis, Lincoln, Granite Bay and Rocklin are all an easy commute to Sacramento and offer a number of family activities – community centers, swim complexes. The historic towns of Auburn and Newcastle are the gateways to the Sierra offering trails and rivers to explore, fishing spots, campgrounds, and back country excursions. Placer County offers a wide variety of things to do: from farmers markets to manicured golf courses, and entertainment at Thunder Valley Casino and Placer Community Theater.
