Chico Rental Properties: Activities to Keep You Busy in the Chico Heat

July 29, 2022 / by Hignell Rentals Team

Couple laughingThe Chico heat can be sweltering and you need to figure out a few activities to help keep you occupied and as cool as possible. Of course you can always stay in your Chico rental properties and enjoy the wonderful air conditioner, but this can also spike up your energy bill. If you want some fun and energy savings, maybe it's time for you to go outside and try something new in Chico in the summertime!

1.  Chico Observatory

One of the best ways to beat the heat is to be mindful of what activities you are doing during the day outside and which ones you are doing outside at night time. If you need something to do at night, then check out the Chico Observatory. With our clear nights in Chico, you are able to gaze at the different stars with a really cool telescope and learn a thing or two about space all while doing something that will help you stay cool.

2.  Farmers' Market

Oh yeah, Chico is known for our Farmers' Markets but going to the Thursday Night Market might not be a great way to beat the heat. However, there is always the Saturday Farmers' Market that starts at 7:30 am so you can get your outside shopping done when it is still a tolerable temperature.

3.  Forebay Aquatic Center

Do you want to try a new water activity but don’t have the money to purchase the equipment? Well then the Forebay Aquatic Center is the place for you! You can rent kayaks, canoes, wet suits and more! Spend your afternoon on Lake Oroville while mastering your technique on the water.

4.  Disc Golf

Try this fun sport while enjoying the shade of Chico’s gorgeous trees. Around Chico, you can find several different disc golf courses or places where you can play. Go to Play It Again Sports and purchase a used disc and get ready for some fun! 

5.  Enjoy Bidwell Park

Bidwell Park seems like it lasts forever and what does that mean for you? It means that you can find places along the river where you can have a picnic, read a book and swim without having a lot of people around distracting you while you are trying to relax.

6.  Tubing

Another activity that is popular in Chico is tubing. Are you tired of tubing the Sacramento River? Then grab your tube and try Butte Creek. But remember, every tubing experience is different. Be prepared with sunscreen and take plenty of water to keep you hydrated.

This is just a short list of the things that you can do when you live in Chico rental properties.
