The Convenient Location

Placer County residents love to travel. Being centrally located provides great choice for residents who wish to explore the abundance of California treasures.

Wow, we’re always amazed at how much people just love to buy stuff and South Placer County is a California shopping mecca. As one of California’s top shopping regions, it’s a popular draw for residents throughout a large swath of Northern California.

Great weather, involved parents and competitive spirits provide the perfect ingredients to nurture a thriving youth sportsย community. Sports tourism is on the rise as resources and political capital are being expended to fuel this wave.
