What is really appealing to anyone looking to relocate to Folsom is the fact that job growth has exceeded population growth which in plain terms means the jobs are here!

Young professionals find opportunity in Folsom

R

eflecting the high caliber of jobs is the fact that Folsom boasts the highest household median income in the Capital Region and is the 13th highest in the state. The professional, scientific, and technical services, finance and insurance, and health care sectors are leading the way in employment growth for Folsom. The growth in shopping and restaurant choices in Folsom are indicative of the strength of the retail, and accommodation and food services sectors. Currently, there are 5,620 companies in Folsom. These companies have created a diversified base beyond the city’s history with correctional facilities at Historic Folsom Prison. Folsom has the lowest unemployment rate in the

ANOTHER WAY TO MEET MR. JOHNNY CASH

This 190-foot bridge crosses Robber’s Ravine and is part of the Johnny Cash Art Trail.

T

ell your host that you are from Folsom while visiting anywhere in the US, Germany, Ireland or even China and invariably they will respond “Ah, isn’t that the home of Folsom Prison and Johnny Cash?” Performed at Folsom Prison in 1968, “Folsom Prison Blues” is one of the most popular songs of all time. To honor the “Man in Black,” Folsom established the Johnny Cash Trail Art Experience. It is a 3-mile paved cycling/ walking trail with a 190-foot long wooden bridge and a unique prison-designed street overcrossing. The trail links to the city’s comprehensive paved trail system and the American River Parkway. With this innovative project, Folsom is paving the way for the nation as this venture will be one of the first to combine public art with a comprehensive multi-use trail. When completed with eight planned art pieces honoring Cash, the trail will be a lasting legacy to a man who literally highlighted Folsom in the minds of the world. Visit FolsomCashArtTrail.com J

CRAFT BEER CRAZE IN FOLSOM

Enjoy the cool refreshment of beer creativity.

Red Bus Brewing Company is the first to brew beer in Folsom since the 1800s

W

hile craft beer may have its roots in the city’s historic Gold Rush, today this fan favorite brew has spurred the opening of many tap houses

and pubs to quench the thirst of residents. For the first time since the 1800s, craft beer is being created and brewed in Folsom, not just served.

Tap into a Cold One kicks off Jan.-Feb. Beer Week in Folsom.

Folsom Relocation Guide 2018 - Greater Folsom Partnership - 33

Red Bus Brewing Company, with its namesake 1960s classic red Volkswagen bus, offers small batch production of eight different styles. Located in just about every corner of Folsom, tap houses show off the best brews in the region. In fact, Grist Beer Hall, located in Palladio, offers 50 different brews and the knowledgeable staff will help you pick a favorite. So many brews, so little time. Ah, but that comment just isn’t true in Folsom. Twice a year Folsom hosts beer tasting events. In late January – early February, Folsom Beer Week offers a signature tasting event followed by an entire week of specialty events held at pubs and tap houses. In August, Tap Folsom celebrates summer and beer – a tasting event held in historic Folsom. TapFolsom.com J
