What makes Rocklin such a special place to live?
Is it the excellent schools? Maybe the city’s diverse population and affordable cost of living are two big reasons.
According to a recent report by Money Magazine, there are plenty more reasons why residents and visitors alike gravitate toward everything Rocklin has to offer.
In its rankings, the magazine noted a little history. Over the last 10 years, Rocklin’s population has grown by leaps and bounds.
The fast growth is not hard to believe given the makeup of this incredible place.
As a suburb of the capital city, Rocklin has plenty to offer. From great schools, historical sites, shopping and dining opportunities to outdoor recreation, Rocklin is a standalone city that has it all.
Quarry Park drew plenty of praise from the ranking report. With adrenalin-inducing attractions, including rock climbing and ziplining, the park has established a reputation for a fun day out for the entire family. The park also offers paddle boating and an amphitheater.
Whitney Oaks Golf Club also received plenty of praise in the report, which uses a wide range of categories to rank cities.
Cost of living, economic opportunity, health, safety, housing market, quality of life and personal finance are some of the metrics used to derive the list, which puts Rocklin as No. 43.
Rocklin joins only one other California city to make the top-50 list.
Low crime rate was also a notable characteristic.
The community’s mix of first-class business, retail and recreation reminds residents and visitors of a bigger city setting. At the same time, the close-knit communities that make up Rocklin embrace a small-town energy and sense of community every day.
Residents also enjoy proximity to parks. There’s one less than half a mile from almost every door across the region.
Add in the city’s top employers, health care providers, entertainment, excellent schools and two thriving colleges, and you can truly see why Rocklin is one of the top cities in the nation.
