Shoppers in the Roseville Galleria Mall move around near the center escalator as they shop inside the mall. The Galleria is located just off of Interstate 80.

Roseville owes its origin to the railroad. The city took on life more than 100 years ago as a switching yard for trains that ran north and south with those that ran east and west.
Trains are still a big business in Roseville, but the city's horizons have now expanded to high tech and housing for families in the fast-growing region.
Sixteen miles northeast of downtown Sacramento, Roseville offers nine acres of parks per 1,000 residents. The parks provide traditional activities such as baseball and basketball, but also a skate track, an in-line hockey rink and batting cages. Nine golf courses are located in Roseville or in the area.
Nearby is Folsom Lake, with camping, boating, swimming, fishing and miles of equestrian and biking trails. Lake Tahoe and the scenic Sierra Nevada are an easy drive up Interstate 80.
If it's shopping you want, Roseville is home to the newest regional mall in the area, the Galleria at Roseville, a spectacular facility that includes many of the major retailers in the country.
The Roseville area also includes a Sun City adult community and housing ranging from older and newer homes to apartments and townhouses.
