When it comes to raising a family, Folsom is one of the best places in California.

That's according to the consumer advocacy website NerdWallet that ranks the city number two on their new "Best City for Young Families" list.

Folsom secured the second spot because of its affordable homes, good schools and quality of life.

The San Joaquin Valley city of Clovis came in at No. 1, Yuba City came in at No. 3 and Roseville and Davis at No. 8 and No. 9.
