Water fountain park has given a new look to the old downtown. Victorian homes line shady streets of Chico California. Some are museums, some offices & all walking distance to the shops & cafes. Chico has parks, river walks, bike paths & a huge University: Chico State. One of the biggest attraction is Bidwell Park, where the creek flows into shallow pools, swimming holes & secluded hide aways, a perfect solution for beating the heat.

    One of the biggest cities and hippest college towns in Northern California. Great downtown with lots of water ways, shops & cafes. The population increased overnight (NOV 2018), after the neighboring town of Paradise burnt down.
