Where Can You Find SeaQuest Folsom?

SeaQuest Folsom is located at the beautiful Palladio at Broadstone Shopping Center. Only 35 miles East of Sacramento, the City of Folsom is renowned for its family friendly atmosphere, great school system, and wide variety of shopping, dining, and entertainment options. Folsom is located right off of US – 50W and Lake Natoma borders the North and Western area of the city.


Folsom calls Northern California its homeland, and the city was made famous worldwide in 1955 when Johnny Cash released his iconic song Folsom Prison Blues. Opened in 1880, Folsom Prison is still operational and is the second oldest prison in the state. The city also has a number of beautiful parks, including Folsom State Park and recreation areas near Lake Natoma. The Golden State Capitol and Sacramento Airport are 45 minutes west of the city,  while Lake Tahoe is situated 90 miles East of Folsom.
