The back to school rush is upon us. Our little town of Chico is going to double in size [much like the Grinch’s heart], making everything feel more crowded!

Chico is an amazing place to live and it’s not just because we have yummy places to eat or small-town events that are good for the whole family. There are also numerous businesses that will welcome your dog and they will do it with a smile on their faces.
While our blog posts mainly focus on Living in Chico rental properties and all the things you can do within them, it’s always fun to post about actually living in Chico. Downtown Chico always has something to offer, whether it’s shopping to support local business, eating at fabulous restaurants, or attending annual events like Slice of Chico.

The months of July and August are when it starts to really get hot here in Chico, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t enjoy all there is to offer. Make sure you find ways to celebrate all this summer whether it’s in the form of a free concert, watermelon slices, or getting the gang together for an outdoor movie.
We’ve pulled together a collection of events in Chico, and if you are a resident of a Living in Chico property, there are a select group of exclusive events at the bottom of this post just for you that have been set up by your Creating Caring Communities Team! Go forth and enjoy.

You’ve spent a fair amount of time in your apartment trying to beat the heat, but what happens when you start to get antsy and just want to be set free? Clearly the answer is to leave your apartment! Yet the idea of leaving your apartment when Chico is heading towards the warm hundreds sounds like a terrible plan.

There is no better time for grilling than summer. It's a great way to enjoy the warm summer weather while keeping the extra heat generated from cooking outside. Cooking inside releases heat into your apartment and makes your AC work even harder. Most Chico apartments do not allow charcoal grills, due to the smoke and smell of lighter fluid when you start them up. Don't worry though, we have you covered. Check with your apartment manager first, but most apartments allow a gas grill on your patio.

Happy 4th of July!
Fireworks, the one event that captures the attention of all ages. It’s the time of year to celebrate Independence Day together and gather as a community to watch the dark sky light up in magnificent colors. The feeling of unity it brings to a town is remarkable. Do you remember as a child gathering the kids around your neighborhood and then walking to the end of your street to watch the fireworks in Chico? Everyone waited in eager anticipation for the first “boom” followed by an eye opening display of colors.

Along with summer, comes all of those vacations you’ve been planning for the last few months, or the ones that just popped up on your radar. You’ve probably already thought through the kind of things you’ll need to get before you leave, but have you thought of your Chico apartment?

We have already hit 97 degrees this year and it's only going to get hotter when summer is in full force. For anyone who has already survived a summer in their Chico apartment, you know it's a challenge to stay cool. We have nights that don't drop below 80 degrees until after 10 PM! The easy solution is to run your air conditioner 24/7, however you will have the unfortunate side effect of an astronomical power bill. Is there a smarter way to beat the heat?
