Laguna West


Laguna West is an upscale neighborhood that families in Elk Grove love. It has three different communities, all with different amenities; soccer fields, parks, waterways, fishing, beautiful walks, newer big homes and excellent public schools. If you pick the Stone Lake community you also get a country club-like community center with a pool, events center, courts and more.

Another nice option is Foulks Ranch. It's a pedestrian and bike-friendly area and is home to Kloss Park, a 22-acre oasis of play for the kiddos with tons of playgrounds, ball fields and after-school and summer camp offerings.

The Park at Laguna Springs


Elk Grove has perfect weather for retirees. The cost of living is pricier than Arizona or Nevada but if you can make the money work the climate and living options are friendly. Outside traditional housing (lots of master-bedrooms on the first floor) there are great retirement communities like The Park at Laguna Springs.

The Park is more campus than retirement home and like a campus it's pretty much a self-contained city. It has housing options for every taste, independent living or assisted/memory Care, first-class food, fitness facility, movie theater, full-time housekeeping staff, fitness coaching and just about everything else you can think of.
