  • Took tour with our North Valley Services group. From Red Bluff Frontier facility. We all loved it
  • One of the amazing place to visit in Oroville, California. We can see the tallest dam in America. There is a small museum here, however, you can know everything about the history of Oroville and the dam. There also is the theater inside, and you can select some category of history film to watch. There is a tower there, on its top, you can see all the natural scenes here as lake, dam, forest, bridge... One of the good place I strongly suggest you visit once time coming here.
