Chico, Redding, CA

Chico, CA (pop 86,949)

Chico is located about 90 miles north of Sacramento and is known mostly as a college town. I attended Chico State my first year in college.







































































































































































































































Redding, CA (pop 107,741)

Redding is about 70 miles north of Chico and is the largest city in California north of Sacramento. I stopped in Redding on the way back from a trip to Southern Oregon to see the Sundial Bridge. Not much else to see actually, but, I thought I'd throw in the pics here.















Sacramento River

Great to see some Chico - it looks like it has a pleasant vibe. The Sundial Bridge is pretty sweet, too. Thanks for the tour!


This bus shelter or ticket counter is really cool:

Wonderful and quite beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing. I suppose Chico is much more interesting than Redding.

Whoa, Chico lookin' real good. Fun commercial buildings, and attractive residences. I likes it. I've heard it's quite the partying school. Thanks for the tour, step.

Yeah thats all I've ever heard was Chico was a huge college party town. Thanks for the photos as I have always wondered what it look like. I've only passed though the city, and that was in the wee hours of the night on an Amtrak train.

Didn't expect the downtown area to be so well-kept, even with the college town factor. Also surprised at the amount of nice trees and the old housing stock. Cool town.

Beautiful looking town and fantastic shots! Love the Art Deco 'Senator' theater and the Deco tower next to it!
