Although Folsom does have public bus service within the city limits, the buses only run during the week on a fixed business route. The best way to get around town is by car or bike. Realistically Folsom is fairly compact and the only "major" shopping areas of interest are along Riley Street, East Bidwell Street, Folsom Blvd., and Sutter Street in old town. Ask a local for advice or directions to a variety of shopping centers for your individual needs. If you need to venture out of Folsom on public transportation, take the light rail "gold line". Hop on the light rail train in old town Folsom and take it all the way to downtown Sacramento. There are numerous stops along the way.

Folsom Premium Outlets has a lot of popular brands/stores. It's the one place you need to visit if you're looking for clothes and sportwear, shoes, accessories, houseware or gifts.
The complex is well-designed, they have several buildings and all stores open outdoor, which adds to the (relatively) relaxing environment.

California's second oldest prison, made famous by Johnny Cash, officially opened in 1880. The small prison museum, opened by retired prison guards in the late 1980's, provides visitors with a variety of prison artifacts, such as: old weapons confiscated from the inmates, a Ferris wheel made out of 250 thousand toothpicks, and a worn out life sized mannequin named "Sam" dressed in a striped prison uniform. Push the button and "Sam" will tell visitors a brief history of the infamous prison. They have quite a bit of Johnny Cash memorabilia from his concert he put on there in 1968 as well as souvenirs for sale. The retired guard that runs the museum is very friendly and really enjoys talking with visitors. Keep in mind, the museum is bit hokey, so don't expect much for the $2.00 admission. To get there: From downtown, take Natoma/East Natoma Street, make a left on Folsom Prison Road (you'll see the signs), continue straight (do not turn right, that will take you to new Folsom prison), park in the main parking lot, walk past the main entrance gate, and the museum is on your right.
