The farmers market in the cool spring early summer evening is especially nice because you get to see the true flavor of Chico and its spirit.
Fondest memory: Walking through Upperbidwell park for a 4mile moonlite walk with the sierra club was exciting. Traveling along side the mountain, at times the moonlight so strong I didn't need the flash light.
Let's face it, Chico is a college town. Weekends start on Thursday and end Monday. Everyone I know who has visited Chico can say they have parts to the weekend they can't even remember.
Great bars, fun people and more drinks than you can handle.
I love visiting friends here when we were in college. It was truly insane.
Fondest memory: The Bear. Great place to have a beer.
Although the summer temp reaches over 100 degrees, late summer Early Fall season is spectacular with its colours changing. Where ever you travel, hike, bike ride, or stand, the amazing change becomes a moving kaleidoscopic visual performance.
Fondest memory: Being a part of its beauty is enough.
Well ~ not exactly right IN Chico, but certainly nearby.
And, sometimes, right in our own backyards!
Besides the bobcat pictured here, we've seen the following in the neighborhood: deer, mountain lion, bear, coyote, wild turkey, sandhill cranes (they fly over my house when they head north after the winter), quail, and about 30 species of birds that come to my feeders.
Check out the concerts in the Park. Downtown Chico on Wednesday and Friday nights. Live Music, lots of fun
for the whole Family!
Also Thursday night, Farmer's Market! Downtown, lots of street vendors, fresh produce, breads, etc., fun for kids and entire family!
Fondest memory: Floating down the Sacramento River on a hot, sunny afternoon! Lots of friends all around, live music from a local radio station floating on a big raft!
