The Harris Center is an incredible facility! The design, acoustics, and staff are amazing. Parking is easy and plentiful. Having attended musicals, plays, and concerts, the facility and performances are top tier.

Reviewed By TravelGal2004 - Shingle Springs, California

If you've been here in the past, I suggest you make a reservation to get the seat you want. Because most of the theaters now have recliner seating, there aren't as many seats available, so seating fills quickly. But, we love watching movie from those comfortable recliners.

Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary

Reviewed By deanosan48 - Pleasant Hill, California

Fun with Henry the bear was an excellent outing by having our young grandkids to enjoy with.
Unfortunately the zoo was in a repair condition and we didn’t get to see all of the animals however the reduced rate made it very bearable .

Will certainly return in the future

Sutter St.

This historical area is a pleasant spot to spend the day.

Reviewed By Vince F - Folsom, California

I live here in Folsom and I visit the "Old Town" area, along Sutter street several times a month. There is always something new and exciting to do. They have quite a few interesting shops, great dining, group activities, family events and City sponsored festivals. There is ample parking one block to the north, and a relatively new parking garage near the train turn-table. My favorites are the craft fairs, the farmers markets, and the frequent gathering of friends at eating and drinking places along the street.

Dry Diggings Distillery

Reviewed By TravelGal2004 - Shingle Springs, California

Relatives wanted to visit a brewery in the area, so I suggested we first check out the distillery. It was the highlight of my day. This place is really the tasting room and is tucked into office space in a business park. As we walked...MoreThanks for visiting, and posting such a nice review. We enjoy giving tours and explaining what we do. We are a little hidden here in the business park, but its part of our charm... hope to see you again. Cris

Just jumped in the COLD but clean and clear water for a refreshing break. Lots of little spots along the lake to enjoy. We walked from our hotel and there are walkways and bike paths all along the side. Just lovely.

Mraz Brewing Company

Reviewed By Mark M - El Dorado Hills, California

It's the Wandering Yank here. I always appreciate a good local brew, and when our son visited it was the perfect opportunity to visit as he has good taste too :) Mraz Brewing was a great choice!

It's very small and casual, but there must have been a dozen different beers available. I went straight to a pint of a very nice IPA while he had 3 small glasses of some pretty interesting (but not my cup of tea) sours and a scotch ale. All very good.

Very pleasant and friendly service at the rudimentary bar, seating outdoors on a very nice day, reasonable prices and good beer. What more could we have had? (Well, maybe some hot food options, but it's not that kind of place. There was a sign about Friday food trucks).

2 thumbs up!
