Best Selfie Spots in Chico

Posted by Ben Olberg

September 20, 2018

Are you looking for the definitive Chico selfie spot? Are you all dressed up, with your hair just right and your "Blue Steel" look rehearsed and perfected? What background is going to help you up your selfie game and get your profile pic to the next level? We have the answers...

Especially since Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Latte, which usually lets everyone know it's time for fall, arrived way early this year.
