What are the best road trip destinations near Chico?
The best part about having your own set of wheels is that you can travel where you want, when you want. Make the most of your freedom by exploring all there is on offer in Vina. It's only 18 miles away. Woodson Bridge State Recreation Area should be at the top of your to-do list here. Tehama County River Park and the New Clairvaux Vineyard are excellent attractions too. Locals are also likely to point you towards Palermo, 25 miles away. If you can only see one thing here, let it be the Gold Country Casino. (But we'd also recommend the Feather Falls Casino and Bedrock Park.)
