We’ve been several times to the performances at Sutter Street Theatre... We always come away very impressed with the entertainment they provide. The theatre is small (advance tickets are advised) and the seating is not luxurious, but remember you’re in Old Town Folsom, so it’s all part of the experience!! At intermission, you can purchase their refreshments, or, walk down the street to the Snooks candy shop for yummy caramel corn or a hand-dipped ice cream cone!! And, of course, there’s numerous restaurant choices for a meal before or after the show all a walkable distance from the theatre. Ticket prices are reasonable and there’s usually choices of shows to appeal to families or adults. A great place to go for a matinee or an evening!!…

Took a friend to see historical buildings and Sutter St. was very pretty. We did enjoy the chocolate shop that was recommended and it was very nice.

If you like a relaxing village to shop, eat, drink and just relax, check out Sutter Street in Folsom. Lots of choices...

We visited Folsom on a Sunday and parked at the free garage near the light rail station. From there it was easy to walk across the plaza to Sutter Street. This historic main street is lined with charming old buildings that house shops and restaurants. There are educational signs posted here and there with information on the history of the area. There's also a museum run by the Historical Society and a railroad museum around the corner on Wool Street at the train depot (unfortunately these were not open until 11:00 on Sunday). We were really interested in the A-frame railroad turntable on the plaza, but were disappointed to find that it had been surrounded by a makeshift ice-skating rink for the holiday season and covered with obtrusive advertisements. We ate a lovely lunch at Marly and Moo then walked on the Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail to the Folsom Powerhouse and the historic truss bridge over the American River. Note that the town is on a hill that slopes down to the river, so there are some grades that were challenging in a wheelchair. Some of the businesses are located upstairs.…

Check out the soap box derby days on calendar. Came across this event during October 2018. This time in Aug 2019, it is a lot more quieter. Most stores were not open on an early Sunday morning, but still nice to take a stroll down the street.
