Rocklin Real Estate & Homes in California
If you are you looking to find real estate near wide open-spaces, but still want access to big city amenities, then Rocklin is a perfect place to call home. This community is nestled at the base of the Sierra Foothills just off of Interstate 80 in Placer County. Sacramento, the state capital, is just 25 miles to the southwest. Lake Tahoe is less than 100 miles to the east. Rocklin provides its approximately 60,000 residents with premier residential communities, a school district that is committed to excellence and an extensive park system.
Rocklin is known for the huge expanse of granite under and around it that has played a key role in the city's development. Much of that early history can still be found in the downtown area that has been restored and features a mix of past and present. The fast-growing community has maintained its strong sense of community that has made Rocklin one of the region's most attractive places to live. The city hosts a variety of special events including Summer Night Markets with live music, food trucks, and a movie in the park; concerts in Quarry Park; the annual Woofstock with activities for your pup (money raised goes to local rescue groups); the Rocklin Mini Maker Faire; and the annual Easter Egg Hunt in spring and Santa Tours in the winter, each hosted by Rocklin Firefighters.
