Welcome to Around Here Magazine . . . coming to you from the Foothills of Northern California's Gold Country, a place rich in natural beauty and brimming with exciting events, activities and adventures!

The magazine is community-oriented and down to earth. It features regional history, places to go and things to do.

We like to tell all our readers about the gems in this area: the people, places, events and activities around here. We cover the foothills area from El Dorado Hills through Cameron Park, Coloma and Placerville (aka Historic Hangtown). Stacks of magazines are also distributed throughout El Dorado and on up to the Apple Hill area, wine country and parts of Highway 49 (the Gold Country highway).

The current quarterly edition is available throughout the Western Sierra foothills of El Dorado County. You'll find copies of Around Here Magazine on the counters and in the racks of the businesses of our advertisers and hundreds of other high-traffic establishments throughout the foothills. Find yours quickly; they go fast. You can also subscribe, and have Around Here delivered right to your home or office.

Let us have your comments and suggestions. We hope you come back often and linger.... the Calendar of Foothills Events and Recipes are favorite landing pads for our many visitors. Thanks for visiting! We'll be seeing you in the foothills around here!
