Welcome to Placer County! Bordering Sacramento County, Lake Tahoe and the state of Nevada, Placer County travels along Highway 80 with valley views, the historic foothills and the high mountain vistas.
Divided into three geographical areas, the valley offers prime recreation including Folsom Lake one of California’s largest lakes. The valley area is a favorite place for active retirees and suburban families who want it all — golfing, biking, swimming, hiking and horseback riding trails. Roseville alone boasts nine golf courses, major shopping attractions and two renowned aquatic centers.
Gently rolling hills leads us into the lush foothills and the Gold Country with valley views. Enjoy the relaxed rural atmosphere of historical Loomis and Newcastle. Luxury estate communities abound in the area as well as prime agricultural properties producing mandarins and grapes.
In the foothills the wine trail beckons. The Auburn area wineries are a favorite destination for Northern Californians, while the city of Auburn boasts many historic buildings plus unique shops and eateries. Over half of Placer County is National Forests and State Parks. These areas feature wild and scenic rivers, old wagon trails, gold rush era towns and breathtaking vistas.
The eastern part of the county is home to the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains. A little over an hour away and you are skiing! Whether it be a family home or a vacation home, come to Placer County and experience the Lifestyle!
