City of Chico
The city of Chico offers an outstanding quality of life, and is often rated one of the best small U.S. cities. With fewer than 100,000 people, it has the feel of a friendly small town but it is also a cultural, entertainment, dining, and shopping hub of north central California. Chico has a great four season climate, with mild winters and 250 days of sunshine. Chico has an innovative public school system that offers everyone a choice of schools, and has several special programs (e.g., music immersion, Spanish immersion, academic plus). Its location at the base of the Sierra Nevada foothills offers excellent access for hiking, camping, skiing, boating, rock climbing, and fishing.
