Default Good areas vs bad areas in Roseville?

My family might be relocating to the Sacramento area from Ohio. I like Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln, Folsom, and Cameron Park. I noticed that Roseville is pretty spread out and could potentially have some not so desirable areas (higher amount of crime, etc.) like any town. I would love to know if there are any areas in Roseville we should avoid? We have 3 kids & want a family oriented community to live in. Thanks!

Generally people avoid the older neighborhoods in Roseville. So anything along the tracks going through the heart of the town is generally avoided. I personally always use the schools scores to help judge a neighborhood. Schoolperfmancemaps.com is easy to use but outdated a few years and gives you general idea of what to expect.

Even the "bad areas" of Roseville are pretty safe, like the neighborhoods south of Vernon Street. The homes there are more quaint and tree-lined, and you can walk to Roseville's little downtown. It's not a big city by any means, and "downtown" is mostly just the remnants from when Roseville was a little railroad town, with an Art Deco theater and some little boutiques and cafes.

So which subdivisions should we avoid in Roseville? Highland Reserve? Industrial area?

Have you ever been to Roseville? You can't make informed decision without visiting at least once. If you want safety, just avoid anything near the downtown/older part of town. Although even in that area, some neighborhoods are better than others. But since you are not familiar with the city, just stick to the newer, suburban neighborhoods (Northwest/West Roseville).

Those are both fine.

Roseville has a huge railroad presence. The downtown area is close to the tracks, hence, it will always be gritty, industrial, and attract an undesirable element. The further away from the train tracks you go, the better the neighborhoods are and the more the homes cost. I think it's the same for thousands of cities across America.

Even the "bad" part of Roseville is a walk in the park compared to most of Sacramento City proper. Fear not.

Roseville isn't scary at all. I don't know what people are thinking. to me Roseville reminds me of a lower to middle class blue collar town in the older parts, but nicer and upscale everywhere else. Do I like that kind of place? Not really but I'd probably rather live there than Natomas or Elk Grove for sure. Downtown is pretty charming.

It looks like the western part of Roseville is really nice. I'm not sure about the eastern side? I really appreciate everyone's input on this. We will probably be visiting the Sacramento area early next month, so it will be good to know which areas to look at.
