Placer County

Placer County is a destination for visitors from around the world, but for its local residents, there is a personal sense of how fortunate we are to live, work and play in such beautiful country.  From the suburbs of Roseville, Lincoln and Rocklin to the foothills of Auburn, our historic Gold County, the opportunity to enjoy a variety of lifestyles is never-ending. The gem of our county is scenic North Lake Tahoe, known for its beauty, size and clarity, but we also have numerous small towns known for their unique and rich heritage that make up the landscape along Interstate 80, which is something we are also quite proud of in Placer.

If you are an outdoor enthusiast, there is no better place to be than Placer County with its natural lakes, rivers and streams for whitewater rafting and fishing, while also being home to more than one million acres of national forest land filled with trails for hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking. We also boast a handful of world-renowned ski resorts making Placer County a year-round destination for winter and summer recreation that attracts more than one million visitors each year.  

It’s no wonder we are routinely identified as one of the healthiest counties in California and are consistently ranked as one of the top counties for having the best quality of life in the state. Not only are we happy and healthy, but we are among the best educated with nearly 50% of our residents having achieved an Associate’s degree or higher.  We are also economically strong with a median household income of $85,000 and a median home value of $473,000. 

Placer County is a great place to live, work and play.  We invite you to join us.
