When people hear the name Folsom, they likely recall Folsom State Prison and Johnny Cash's timeless tunes. However, the city of Folsom is so much more. Home to over 72,000 residents, Folsom boasts a thriving downtown imbued with the ambiance of Gold Rush days. It also plays host to one of the largest aquatic centers in the Sacramento Valley, retail outlets, the upscale Palladio shopping district, a zoo, and an interactive aquarium.
