Posted by Jenna Redman

September 27, 2018

You more than likely know that the season of fall is also a season of harvest (hence people calling it “fall harvest”). Crops all around the country are ready to be cut from the ground or pulled off a tree. While it’s normal for the season of fall harvest to be filled with chilly days, it can also bring a sense of warmth with all the color changes.

With farmers out harvesting their crops, folks are starting to decorate their homes. Fall is the start of the decorating season. From now until January 1st, we'll have many holidays, leaving our homes decorated for many different occasions.

Places to Camp Near Chico (That Are Actually Nice)

Posted by Ben Olberg

September 23, 2018

Make sure you pick a site that fits your needs and level of outdoors experience.

Posted by Jenna Redman

September 12, 2018

It may be hard to believe, since this year's fire season and air quality is worse than last year, but cooler weather [and hopefully clearer air] is on the horizon.

The first day of fall falls [see what we did there?] on a Saturday this year, the 22nd. Therefore, fall is right around the corner and everyone is anxious to pull out their cozy cardigans and boots. Especially since Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Latte, which usually lets everyone know it's time for fall, arrived way early this year.
