If you are looking for a "solid" place to live, Rocklin could be a good bet. It takes its name from the granite rock underlying the city.
Years ago, the main business of Rocklin was quarrying. Today it is more likely to be high tech.
Located on Interstate 80 northeast of Sacramento, the fast-growing suburban community still has links to its Gold Rush past and quarrying days in buildings in its historic section.
Both older and newer homes are available, including locations in the 3,500-acre Stanford Ranch, a master-planned community.
Shopping is easy with quick access to the new Roseville regional mall, The Roseville Galleria.
Three community parks and 19 neighborhood parks are available in Rocklin, which is also close to Folsom Lake, a state recreation area that offers boating, swimming, fishing, hiking, sailing and much more.
A city of 36,000, Rocklin is primarily a family community. Higher education opportunities are provided at Sierra College.
Commute time to downtown SacramentoThe typical commute time for a Rocklin resident is about 27 minutes.
