“A street built by the gold rush”
The storefronts of historic Sutter Street reflect their heritage and are fascinating representatives of historic architecture. It’s easy to imagine the Pony Express galloping down the street while Gold Rush stagecoaches drop off miners in search of their fortune. Visitors can wander through unique shops, visit art galleries and live theater and enjoy a variety of dining choices from simple sandwiches to international cuisine. A trip to Sutter Street wouldn't be complete without stopped at the Folsom History Museum and the original Wells Fargo Assay building. The stately granite monument houses many interesting artifacts of Folsom's past. Also, don't forget to peek in the window at Snooks Candies to see if the candy maker is busy at work. Once the original bustling hub of gold rush-era Folsom, Sutter Street now serves as a comfortable haven for shoppers, art lovers and diners as well as a venue for art and antique fairs as well as other events throughout the year.
We spent a lovely family day in Historic Folsom over the Thanksgiving weekend ... was something for everyone in our group. From ice skating to the Fat Rabbit pub to Snooks ice cream and a walk across the historic bridge and along the river for some great photography shots. Topped off the day with dinner at Marley & Moo. Favorite dish? The brussel sprouts. Yum. There's lots more to do. it's a great way to get unplugged.
