Living in the heart of Downtown Chico is where all the action happens. This lively area is filled with beautiful homes surrounded by gorgeous sycamore trees and amazing foliage. The architecture of these homes is so intricate and impressive. Not only are the homes beautiful but the area surrounding it is gorgeous as well. Never a lack of things to do in downtown, whether it be walking around Lower Bidwell Park, stopping at the local eateries to try some scrumptious food, or taking a hike to one of the many swimming holes. Homes in these areas are pricier than other areas of Chico because of their sought after location. Most within walking distance to attractions such as Shubert’s Ice Cream Shop, The Pageant Theatre, and a multitude of unique, locally-owned boutiques, shops, and eateries. This area is bustling with professors, students, and staff from the College, and is very family-friendly.
