"Best street to avoid Hwy 50."

It seems that every city has this type of street in one iteration or another. Folsom Boulevard starts as a two lane residential street and becomes a 40+ mph four-lane expressway that runs along the light-rail line all the way from Business-80 in Midtown Sac to, you guessed it, the city of Folsom.

I like the fact that Folsom Blvd. is such a diverse street in it's uses as it glides through Sacramento. There are sections of Folsom where you'd think it was a nice little residential artery, yet there are sections of Folsom that would convince you you were an industrial section of Los Angeles with quarries, rails, highway overpasses, and heavy truck traffic.

The fact that Folsom Blvd. travels along the Hwy. 50 corridor is a boon to local traffic as you are not forced to get involved with the commuters in order to get to your shopping mini-malls or the Home Depot.

The section of Folsom that parallels the light-rail near Rancho Cordova is great if you need a seedy motel for a one-night-stand or for whatever else you'd need a seedy motel room.

Aside from the decent residential neighborhood where Folsom originates in Midtown Sac, I wouldn't choose to live along this street. There are, however, options for lower-cost housing along Folsom that shouldn't be omitted in a discussion of the street's offerings. There is at least one mobile-home park along Folsom as well as a few larger condominium complexes with entrances on or near the street.

Overall, Folsom Boulevard is a useful artery for getting around central-eastern Sacramento and getting some errands done.

anonym Fyi - the mobile home park is Seniors only. Where are the condominium complexes?
