Why Take the Family to Folsom?

When deciding where to go on vacation this year, consider Folsom California. It is in Sacramento County, and offers activities and attractions to suit every member of the family. Folsom California Events range from tours of the prison, to the annual Folsom Jazz Festival in January, to multiple outdoor events. There are also discount shopping outlets, an aquatic center for the kids, a zoo, a community theater, and a sports complex. Several parks and recreational trails are available for hiking, biking, walking, bird watching, and enjoying a picnic. Museums abound, restaurants are plentiful, and accommodations are available that fall within any budget.

Families can rent a house or cottage if they prefer privacy and quiet. They can select a camp site for their tents, campers, RVs, and motor coaches for relaxation, campfires, and close proximity to nature. Resorts, hotels, and bed and breakfast establishments are also available. Planning ahead is recommended because many events gather a huge crowd annually. The jazz festival, for example, is the largest jazz competition in the State and includes well over one-hundred bands, choirs, ensembles, and individual artists. This event is always sold out so vacancies may be difficult to find at the last minute.

Planning ahead for a family vacation is wise wherever the destination. Purchasing airline tickets in advance helps to save money, and avoids stress. Arranging transportation early prevents the family spending extra time at the airport after arrival. The kids will be tired, the luggage will seem heavier than when it was packed, and everyone will be hungry. Having transportation, or a rental car, ready to go will expedite the process of getting settled. Event tickets can be found online, as can entrance tickets to attractions, movie theaters, and museums. That helps a family organize their trip so no desired activity is missed.

Gather the family together to discuss vacation ideas and select destinations based on what activities and attractions interest everyone. It is easy to think of the most popular destinations first, but consider other options as well. A destination that is smaller, less known, and off the beaten path may be more fun. It will certainly be less expensive.
