We haven't been down here since Sutter St. was basically remodeled. A number of the old stores are gone, having been replaced by more upscale touristy spots. A few of the oldie but goodies are still there and I think it makes for a good mix of attracting regulars and visitors.

Lovely place to saunter around, windowshop and just check out some history. Might be better of going in a month other than August! But if that's the only time you can get there, there are some great air-conditioned spaces to cool off in!

A must visit if you're around Folsom. Many, many small, but interesting merchants to visit; antiques, train museum , olive oil tasting store, palm reading, and various array of restaurants. Old homes transformed to bussines offices.

All of the construction on Sutter street a few years ago has paid off immensely. The whole area looks great and hasn't lost its small town charm. Walking around is fun and relaxing. What's unfortunate is that so many of the shops keep very short hours. My wife and I have walked through on Friday and Saturday evenings (not late... More

Until our brief visit en route to Lake Tahoe, all we ever knew of Folsom came from the Man in Black, Johnny Cash. What a delightful place it turned out to be. The older part of town is located on the river, and you cross it via one of several bridges. The river is beautiful with rock outcroppings and some... More

I guess if you like wine you might enjoy it. Most of the good shops & galleries are gone, many replaced by wine shops, others by home decor shops with lots of shabby chic & other fake old-looking junk. The one ridiculously expensive antique store on the corner has somehow survived, and a new one is upstairs across the street... More

I love walking up and down the Old Town's Main Street, although I am very disappointed I never got to see it before they 'updated': it looks way better in pictures the way it used to be.The businesses of Sutter Street do their best to be interesting and friendly. You exit the light rail trains right on Sutter at one... More

Nice place to walk around and do a little antique or Christmas ornament shopping. Nice places to eat as well.

This historic town has a lot of places to eat and if you like to drink there's plenty of bar's. There are a few antique shops still left. It's a fun place to spend a couple of hours shopping and even a museum. all in all a fun place to visit.

They added railings and concrete. The updating really detracts from the place. We go here less often
