Hello and welcome to this California Walking Tour of Old Town Folsom. I am Lynn Momboisse and have lived in California all of my life and been exploring the state for decades. I love to discover new area in my backyard and bring my adventures as a hometown tourist to life in walking and driving tours.

It will take about 90 minutes to walk but will depend upon how much time you spend in any of the shops, wine rooms, restaurants or museums.
