The California Military Museum, for example, contains over 30,000 artifacts and a library and document archive regarding California’s military history dating back to the Spanish colonial period.

Art enthusiasts will enjoy many opportunities for exhibitions, live music and performing arts in nearby Sacramento. The Crocker Museum in particular is an attraction not to be missed. The mansion was renovated by the Crocker family in the late 19th century. At the same time, the Crockers built a gallery to contain the family’s valuable art collection. The property, building and collection were presented to the city of Sacramento in 1885. The facility is now operated by the Crocker Art Museum Association and is dedicated to promoting the study and appreciation of fine arts.

Popular recreational activities in the area include hiking, camping, picnicking, fishing, biking, running, horseback riding, water-skiing, and boating. There are several local facilities where most, if not all, of these activities are available. The Folsom Lake State Recreational Area offers trout, catfish, bass and perch fishing as well as a 32-mile bike path. The Auburn State Recreation Area is another popular site.
