Getting around Chico, California


#1

I need some input from guys who have been to Chico.

Isn’t Holiday Inn about a 40min walk away from City Plaza?
There’s no bus, so you guys all walk or take the taxi right?


#2

Pretty much everybody gets a ride with someone… there are a lot of rental cars around since most people fly into sacramento and drive to Chico.

You can even fly into sacramento (typically a lot cheaper than flying into chico) and usually find a ride from the airport with somebody arriving around the same time… though this is trickier of course.

Speaking of which… I want to catch a flight to CIC. However, even if I fly as a minor, I would have nowhere to stay. Would anyone be open to helping me out? I’m not expecting anything, but if someone would be able to help that would be sweet!


#4

I’ve only seen 1 taxi here… If you can get one, great.
Come to bird In hand if you haven’t already!! Haha


#5

There is a B-line bus route that runs everyday until 9pm for less that $2 a ride and it is about a 20 min ride to downtown. And its closer to a 30 min walk than 40. But there are always a ton of people willing to give rides if you have no other option.

Thanks guys. I get the picture now.

I want to stay at the nearest hotel, I think Diamond Hotel,
but I’ll probably end up staying at the Holiday Inn.


#7

I think the diamond hotel is really close to my yoyo club,and museum. If interested pm me ;D
Oh haha, and I think one of the holiday inn hotels has a Denny’s next to it :slight_smile: hahaha

You might want to start up a separate thread. I know a lot of people will cover a percentage of the room to sleep on the floor so you might be able to do that. I had one person do %20-%30 of the room when I was at worlds last time

Possibly… Do you know how far Chico Airport is from the Nats venue?


#10

There are nicer/friendlier hotels very close to the venue (one directly behind bird-in-hand)… however all the yoyo players hang out at the holiday inn. If you have a car, it’s not a problem since you can hang out then just drive back to your hotel whenever you feel like it… otherwise I’d suggest staying where everybody is.

its a little less than 20 minutes if you go the right way.
