The Northern California city of Folsom was made famous by Johnny Cash, who sang of his yearning to take a train far away from its notorious prison. Your own wayfaring freedom promises the opposite experience, however, as your stay at one of the many delightful Folsom hotels represents wanderlust satisfied. You'll be free to join some two million annual visitors to Folsom Lake State Recreational Area, where the natural beauty of the Sierra Nevada foothills will imbue such a sense of serenity that you might be tempted to skip over the many options for water sports and other outdoor pursuits to gaze on the mountains. And, of course, you'll be free to join the action or do nothing at all. Such is the privilege of a wise wanderer like you.
Hotels in Folsom, CA put you in proximity of two beautiful lakes on the American River: Folsom Lake and Lake Natoma. Hike riparian forest trails or while away some hours on the beaches of Folsom Lake State Recreational Area--which encompasses both lakes--and you will soon appreciate the power, both figurative and literal, of this great natural treasure. The clear blue waterways, lined with ancient oaks and foothill pines, will take your breath away. In spring the fiery brilliance of California poppies and dusky, pastel low-lights of lupine, saturate the landscape and beckon you to lie down in a bed of flowers. The reservoirs provide clean water to drink and irrigate crops, fulfilling the essential needs of humanity and sustaining all the life you see for many miles around. Use Folsom rental cars to venture further into the reaches of the region whose thirst is quenched by those mighty wells. You can also stay at one of the best hotels in Sacramento and explore the capital city of California, which incidentally, depends on the power of the rivers that flow from the mountains on your horizon.
