We hope you win, but even if you don’t, we encourage you to take a few moments to experience the best treats living in Chico during the fall season has to offer:
- Enjoy a pumpkin spice latte from Bidwell Perk – If you’ve been living in Chico for any amount of time, no doubt you’ve heard of Bidwell Perk, a local coffee house that is one of the best community gathering spots. Bidwell Perk has a special drink menu for each season, and we highly recommend treating yourself to a pumpkin spice latte, and yes, with whipped cream. When you go to Bidwell Perk, you’ll find yourself welcomed by the friendly staff, served a great tasting beverage, and sitting in a warm atmosphere where you can open a good book, chat with a close friend, or listen to the low hum of chatter around you.
- Take in the fall colors – Living in Chico offers eye candy in the form of leaves changing color all around us. Whether you take a stroll through Bidwell Park, drive up and down the Esplanade or take a short trip up Highway 32 or the Skyway, the reds, oranges, yellows, browns and golds are worth noticing.
- Pick out a pumpkin at TJ Farms Pumpkin Patch – This 15 acre family owned farm is a popular place for families living in Chico and the surrounding areas to visit. It offers a down-home country feel with beautiful grounds to pick out the perfect pumpkin. Families can enjoy hay rides (on the weekends), a hay bale obstacle course, feeding farm animals, a country store, and a picnic under the old walnut trees. Admission and parking is free.
- Attend an Artobertfest event – Did you know that Chico is called America’s #10 art town by author John Villani in his book “The Best 100 Small Art Towns in America”? Artoberfest celebrates the art and culture that living in Chico has to offer. The month-long festival offers more than 100 exhibits, concerts, art fairs, and other performances including literature, poetry dance, film, theater, and more.
We’d love to hear about your experience if you treated yourself to any of the above. Leave us a comment and let us know, or tell us about why you love living in Chico in the fall.
