Are you trying to make last minutes Valentine’s Day plans? Well when you are living in Chico, it may seem like you have been to every restaurant in town. Or maybe you and your sweetheart have fallen into a rut and you only go to the same restaurant when you go out for dinner.

There's normally quite a bit of traveling that goes on during the holiday season unless you're the one who is hosting here in Chico. Want to show your guests a little piece of Chico by taking them to a local restaurant? Or maybe you just want to avoid the mess in the kitchen? Either way Chico has many great restaurants for you to take your visiting family members to.

Shubert’s has been a local Chico favorite since 1938.
Chicoans seem to pass the love of Shubert’s ice cream on from generation to generation. Whether it’s the Chico mint ice cream, homemade candy or that’s it’s family owned and operated, after over 70 years Shubert’s is one of the most beloved Chico summer traditions. Because all of you Chicoans love Shubert’s ice cream so much, and based on a majority vote from our Facebook fans, Shubert’s ice cream was voted as our next featured giveaway.
Are you wondering how you can win one of two $20 Shubert’s gift certificates? All you need to do is subscribe to our blog and you’re entered! Once you’ve subscribed, your name will be placed into our drawing for a chance to win one of two $20 gift certificates. (2 winners will be selected)
What else makes Chico fun in the summer sun?
Although I scream, you scream, we all scream for Shubert’s Ice Cream (it was ranked #2 in America by the CBS Weekend Edition after all), we asked a few Chicoans what they love about summer in Chico and here is what they said…
- “What I love about Chico is the community feel that Farmer’s Market brings to the town every Thursday night.”
- “We really enjoy the Friday Night Concerts in the plaza. It’s great to see local talent displayed to the public.”
- “Downtown Chico. All of the great restaurants and small shops really make for a great night out.”
- “Chico just wouldn’t be the same without Caper Acres. My husband still remembers going as a child.”
- “I have always enjoyed Upper Bidwell Park hikes and swimming holes. After a long day it’s great to escape to the surrounding hills for a jog or beautiful hike.”
- “I really enjoy the CARD program Chico has to offer. My kids attend soccer and basketball and they just love it! It’s a great way to teach teamwork without being overly competitive.”
We’ll see you back here shortly for the announcement of the Shuberts giveaway. In the meantime, go cool off and lick the day away with a Shubert’s ice cream cone. You’ll be glad you did!
“We make LIFE funner!”
