Stretching across some 65 miles west to east, Placer County traverses a diverse range of California landscapes, from the sprawling suburbs of Roseville and Rocklin to the Gold Rush buildings of Auburn and the lakeside views of Kings Beach. Its history is intertwined with the economic forces that created modern-day California: mining, farming, ranching, and rail commerce. Nowadays, economic drivers also include healthcare, high tech, education, retail, and—of course—tourism.
