If your trip to Chico is all organized but your travel itinerary is looking a bit empty, let us give you a few hints and tips.
Near the city center, National Yo-Yo Museum is one sight you might like to put on your to-do list. If you still have space on that travel schedule, Bidwell Mansion State Historic Park and California State University-Chico will keep you entertained, too.
We know you want to take your new wheels for a spin. How about taking a day trip out to Grass Valley? Just 56 miles away, roll down the windows and let the wind rustle your hair on the drive there. Bourn Cottage, Nevada City Chamber of Commerce and Grass Valley Museum alone justify the drive out here. Locals are also likely to point you in the direction of Oroville East, 25 miles away. If you only have time for one attraction here, let it be Kelly Ridge Recreation Area. (But we'd also highly recommend Grey Fox Vineyards and Gold Country Casino.)
Here are our top tips on how to hit the road with some extra cash in your pocket:
Chico has so much to offer. You could spend a week or more here and not run out of things to do. If you want to soak up as much as you can in this buzzing metropolis, a rental car is a must. Bear in mind that driving in the city usually goes hand in hand with tight streets and sparse parking spaces. Don't stress though, because a small, economical car will make this a lot easier to manage. If you're aiming to skip town and cruise around the sandy shores that Chico is well known for, you'll probably prefer something with more room. A mid-size or full-size SUV will make that scenic road trip even more fun.
For some of us, owning a luxury vehicle is a little (or a lot!) out of reach. But renting your dream car can easily be a reality! Imagine cruising the open roads in a swanky sports car, even if it's only for a day or two. Or maybe all you're chasing is a reliable set of wheels to get you from point A to point B. Affordable or flashy? Whatever you're looking for, there's a rental car to suit you in Chico.
