Located 16 miles east of Sacramento in southern Placer County, Roseville is one of the region’s most vibrant and thriving cities. It was ranked in the top three percent in the state for housing affordability through a survey ran by WalletHub. Roseville sits at the intersection of Interstate 80 and Highway 65, providing easy access to Lincoln, Yuba City, and other rural communities. It is also home to countless business, retail, and recreational opportunities.
Roseville is a sprawling city comprised of three distinctive sections – East Roseville/Granite Bay, Central Roseville, and West Roseville. Within those communities lie 72 meticulously maintained parks, welcoming families and active adults with sports facilities, play structures, and picnic areas. Roseville also prides itself on being a bicycle-friendly community with more than 90 miles of bike lanes and 32 miles of off-street paths. In a study conducted by 24/7 Wall Street, Roseville was ranked as the 35th best city for living in the U.S. when compared to other cities of its size – populations of 65,000 or more.
