The closest major airport is Sacramento International Airport.

Get around

Roseville Transit offers bus service in and around the area. Dial a ride is also available for door to door transportation within the city limits.

Buy

Westfield Roseville Galleria at 1151 Galleria Blvd. is a relatively new shopping mall. It is large, bright and spacious with good parking. The mall is currently undergoing an expansion, so expect the usual trouble that comes with a building under construction. This is a very safe place to come and shop, and comes with the usual stores including Macy's, Nordstrom, Sears, and JC Penney's.

Fountians at Roseville directly across from the Galleria mall. It's home to many upscale stores including Chico's, Whole Foods, Smith & Hawken, Anthroplogie, & Theater Xtreme. Also has many dining choices including California Pizza Kitchen, & The Counter. It's known for it's large center fountian that hosts nightly shows with lights. It's a popular hang out spot for the younger crowd, and it's not uncommon to see a wedding party come through at night. Do behave at this mall however, security is ruthless, and will throw you out for the smallest infraction of rules. They are armed with batons and pepper spray, and have armed (with guns) backup close by. But as par with all of Roseville, this is a very safe place to come and enjoy yourself.

Drink

There are a few bars on Vernon Street and Riverside Ave. Most restaurants have bars in them.

Stay Safe

The Roseville Police is a very effective police force. Crime is very low, however petty theft around the mall does happen during the holidays. Roseville Police are known for having a ruthless "no tolerance" policy for traffic violations. However, driving can be tough, it has a big city feel especially during rush hour. Avoid Douglas Blvd from Harding Blvd to East Roseville Pkwy especially around lunch time. Around the Galleria Mall during the holidays is to be avoided unless needed. Do not run red lights, they have cameras on them. Traffic aside, Roseville is one of the safest places in the entire area.
