    In the areas surrounding Chico State, there is always something going on. Many outdoor activities occur in the nearby Bidwell Park. Other fun things to do include floating in the Sacramento River or catching a show at the El Rey Theatre right next to campus. From April to September, Chico has a farmer's market held in the downtown area. This event is quite popular among the college students because people can go out and buy produce, grab a snack from a food truck, or listen to some lively music at the outdoor arena.

    There are many outdoorsy things to do , like hiking, floating down the Sacramento River, or even enjoy Bidwell Park. Although Chico has a social setting, there are still things to do for those who decide not to part-take in those activities.

    The university is located next to a park and to downtown. There are many places to go eat at in the downtown area, or just take a walk around the park.

    Bidwell Park is great, there are plenty of places to swim, hike, bike or just walk around. During summer, there is a great farmer's market every week in downtown Chico. Downtown is usually a good area to hang around, plenty to do.

    Chico State is right next to downtown Chico so there are a ton of little shops and coffee houses and ice cream parlors to go hang out at. Chico also throws some fun programs throughout the year and they have a lot of guest speakers come onto campus. Also, most of Chico State students live within a 5 mile radius of the campus so it's easy to go hang out with your friends whenever.
