Welcome to Rocklin

Leisure and history meld together in the golf-central city of Rocklin, a small-town gem in southern Placer County.
 
Top schools and high-caliber amenities are just the start of Rocklin’s allure, and this historic town ensconced between Loomis and Roseville packs a punch with its enviable enclaves and abundant green space. Easy access to I-80 puts the vibrant city of Sacramento less than 30 minutes away, meaning residents can enjoy the best of both suburban peace and urban entertainment. 
 
Rocklin’s history is inextricably tied to the development of the transcontinental railroad, and the city served as a rest and refuel spot for trains, particularly those traveling between Newcastle and Secret Ravine. Now the town is especially well-regarded for its numerous golf courses and parks. 
 
Incredibly priced new developments abound in Rocklin, with a special emphasis on gracious single-family homes in traditional and ranch styles. Grand custom estates and contemporary abodes are also available for a higher price point and typically rest in halcyon, quiet neighborhoods.
 

What to Love 

  • Close proximity to Sacramento International Airport and Downtown Sacramento — both 30 minutes away 
  • Newer homes available in custom designs under an accommodating scope of prices ● Surrounded by golf courses both in and out of the city 

Local Lifestyle 

Panoramic views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and a terrain of gently sloping hills bring a fairytale quality to Rocklin, which is underscored by the immense strength of the community. Residents are highly involved in keeping Rocklin great, whether through neighborhood associations, civic involvement, or simply participating in the connection-building community events. 
 

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping 

Retail enthusiasts will adore the plentiful shopping opportunities in Rocklin. The city is not only positioned right next to top malls like Westfield Galleria, which carries luxury brands like Louis Vuitton as well as beloved national chains like Pottery Barn, but it’s also home to several of itsown shopping centers.

Maxx, and a large Bass Pro Shop, while Rocklin Commons offers stores such as Target and Ulta in addition to a bevy of eateries. 
 
Rocklin also has several distinctive restaurants, and Moksa Brewing Company is one of the most notable. With its emphasis on quality over quantity, Moska Brewing strives for excellence in all of its craft brews, from the complex porters to the tart IPAs. 
 

Things to Do 

Not only is commuting to Sacramento for entertainment a cinch in Rocklin thanks to the Capitol Corridor and Amtrak train stations but enjoying a night out on the town is also easy — the town is packed with options for fun.
