Chico is the most populous city in Butte County, California, United States. Old Town Auburn and Empire Mine State Historic Park are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of the city life by going to Lassen Peak and West Coast Falconry. Change things up with these side-trips from Chico: Redding (Sundial Bridge, Turtle Bay Exploration Park, & more), Lassen Volcanic National Park (Bumpass Hell & Manzanita Lake) and Lassen Volcanic National Park Hiking Trails (in Mineral). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Bidwell Mansion Historic Park, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Lake Basin Recreation Area, tour the pleasant surroundings at Lower Bidwell Park, and look for all kinds of wild species at Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge.

To find photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Chico vacation trip planner.
