Placer Valley sits at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, northwest of San Francisco and close to Sacramento. It embodies much of what is lovely about California: the temperate weather, the sunshine, and the kind, interesting people. Yet Placer Valley, made up of the cities of Roseville, Rocklin, and Lincoln, is unique. It offers even more than the average California area – more hotels, more shopping centers, more opportunities to eat delicious food, go on day trips, and visit breweries, spas, and casinos. A trip to Placer Valley is truly an experience: tourists who check it out will see all of the magnificent things that make this place so special, from incredible attractions to top-of-the-line sports facilities. Lodging options include stays at the Comfort Inn Rocklin – Roseville, the Residence Inn Rocklin, and the SpringHill Suites by Marriott, among several other hotels.
