I'll leave the specifics to others, but Granite Bay and Roseville are entirely different areas.

Granite Bay is very established and residential, with many impressive homes (top of the line for this metro area) and few apartments. Homes frequently have very extensive landscaping and many are on larger lots. They also have rather small shopping areas.

Roseville is much more upper middle class, generally the homes are upper middle market, and nicer apartments are plentiful. Homes tend to be pretty close together, on rather small lots. Massive retail centers too.

How are the schools? Schools in these cities rank highly. Also consider rocklin because the schools are very nice.

Which is better for raising a child? imo, granite bay or the new part of roseville are both great.

What is the average rent for a 2 bedroom apartment? The prices differ depending on location. Check here for roseville rentals, there are new homes all the time. Property Management Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln and South Placer County - Wildwood Property Management

How is the air quality? Great most of the year.

Is traffic horrendous? Only depending on the time of day.

How is the Health/Dental Care? In my personal experience, both are great.

Are groceries, restaurants, movies etc. easily accessible? Many of all three. Especially in Roseville.

Are there good museums/cultural things to do? The short drive to sacramento gives many things to do - i.e. train museum and festivals

Are there places close by to hike/bike? folsom lake in granite bay gives many trails and hiking areas, fishing too.

Should I consider other areas in Sacramento? What else should I know??
Rocklin, Roseville, Granite Bay, and Lincoln are fantastic areas.

No, they are not. They are suburbs of Sacramento. For many, that is part of the appeal.

How are the schools? -- Excellent. They share the same District

Which is better for raising a child? -- Both are outstanding. Roseville has more libraries and parks that your kid could walk or bicycle to nearby, but Granite Bay is a bit more posh. Most of Roseville is fairly posh too.

What is the average rent for a 2 bedroom apartment? - $1000? I have been an owner and do not look.

What is the job situation like? My experience is in finance/Administrative work.. -- CA as a whole is on the skids, particularly hard here.

How is the air quality? - A bit hazy, especially summers, but not bad compared to LA.

Is traffic horrendous? - Yes. Past Antelope Road Interstate 80 backs up daily.

How is the Health/Dental Care? - Lots of fine clinics and hospitals in the area.

Are groceries, restaurants, movies etc. easily accessible? - A bit of a drive, depending upon your home. Douglas, Pleasant Grove and Blue Oaks Boulevards are the main east/west roads.

Are there good museums/cultural things to do? - Not so much. See downtown Sac.

Are there places close by to hike/bike? - Roseville has many bike trails and spacious creekway parks.
