For those who love the feel of small-town life but still crave the amenities of a larger region, Galt is an ideal place to put down roots. With a relatively small population of just over 20,000, Galt is known for its flea market and its proximity to the Cosumnes River Preserve, a protected swath of beautiful central California landscape.
