Have you discovered the great shopping, eating and entertainment things to do in Roseville CA over on Fairway (including one of my long-time faves – El Pollo Loco) – from Stanford Ranch Road to Adam Drive (which actually goes about one long block into Rocklin, CA). And for those who might be new to the area and a bit confused:
- Stanford Ranch Road turns into Galleria at the I65 and then turns into Harding at Wills Road. They are all in Roseville, CA.
- Fairway Drive turns into Lone Tree Blvd. at Blue Oaks Blvd. It also turns from Roseville to Rocklin, CA.
A bit confusing sounding but really easy when you get used to it.
I really like having all these shopping centers with the stores, restaurants, etc. together because I can get so much done in a fairly small area. That means less driving, less traffic, and less gas used – a triple win, for sure!
Here’s a list of just some of the stores and restaurants available (my own particular faves 🙂 ):
- Joanne’s Fabrics
- Sprouts Farmers Market
- Toys R Us (That one is my grandkids fave!)
- Chuck E. Cheese (Another grandkid fave)
- El Pollo Loco restaurant (as I said above, this is definitely one of MY faves – in fact, I just had lunch there today which is partly what led to this article)
- Home Depot
- Big Lots
- In N Out
- Freebirds Burritos
- Johnny Garlic’s
- Blue Oaks Century Theaters
- Elliott’s Natural Foods
- Nugget Center
ZOWIE! And there are tons more! But that does give us a good round-up to start with.
I was thinking about this area as I drove by it to visit a single story four bedroom home for sale that I once featured on my real estate website. (It has since been sold.) I was thrilled to see how close this home is to so many of these stores and restaurants, not to mention the Del Stephenson Park,
Fairway Park, and Central Park,
It reminds me of when my kids were little and we lived in a cute home that was a fairly easy walking distance to a grocery store, park and restaurant. I loved being able to walk to the store with my kids to pick up a few items I needed for dinner. Sometimes we’d go in the opposite direction and take a walk to the park. It was good exercise, a fun outing, and left such sweet memories.
The kids and I skipped that restaurant though. It wasn’t casual enough for a mom and kids. Nowadays though, there are plenty of nice yet casual eating options, and many are right in this area. Wouldn’t I have fun living in the house I saw today, taking walks to one of the parks in the area – including Central Park which adjoins the very cool Mike Shellito Pool, or heading to Chuck E Cheese for a fun outing, or if we were really adventurous (and I had stroller for all) – go on a bit longer walk to visit Kohl’s and do a little wardrobe or Christmas gift browsing. That would have been quite a delight for me back in the day and still a fun treat today.
And speaking of parks, did you know that one of our great Roseville CA aquatics centers is right on Fairway too. The Mike Shellito Indoor Pool is a part of Central Park (I bet you thought that was in New York? Me too! But turns out WE have one too! 🙂 ) Central Park is a 6 acre park located at 10200 Fairway Dr, Roseville 95678. It includes a soccer field, concrete pathways, a playground at the far end near Pleasant Grove, and the indoor pool where they have so many fun things going on year round. It’s right next to Thomas Jefferson Elementary School at 750 Central Park Dr, Roseville, CA 95678
A block or so further on, you’ll discover the Del Stephenson Park I mentioned earlier, right in the midst of the lovely neighborhood of homes in Highland Park, including a delightful 4 bedroom single story home for sale that I’m currently featuring! Stephenson Park has a cute playground geared for younger and older kids and grandkids. It includes 4 barbeques, 6 picnic tables, a covered picnic area, belt swings, and an wide open play area.
Definitely lots of grand things to do in Roseville CA!
My kids are grown so no more stroller excursions…at the moment. That’s OK, though. I can still enjoy these great shopping and eating centers. And maybe even test drive the fairly new Blue Oaks Century Theaters next time one of my kids or grandkids wants to go to the movies with me. And for the lucky buyers of the sweet home for sale, THEY might enjoy some of those fun excursions. Very fun, don’t you think?
