Find things to do in Placer County


Welcome to the beautiful Loomis Basin, one of the best places to live and visit in the State of California!

Nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Loomis, Penryn, and Newcastle offer a lifestyle reminiscent of a friendly, old-fashioned community. While South Placer County is one of the fastest growing areas in the state, Loomis and the surrounding area has been able to maintain its rural atmosphere and keep growth to a minimum.

We are located 30 minutes east of Sacramento, along the I-80 corridor. Loomis has excellent schools, a library, churches, youth activities, challenging golf courses, and many trails for biking and hiking. Our downtown area offers food venues ranging from fine dining to sandwiches, while the local businesses offer a unique shopping experience.

Stop by to enjoy our original, old-fashioned soda fountain located in Main Drug on Taylor Road.
