So I went to high school in Chico, so this isn't exactly a trip for me, but it had been so long and rare since I had been home, so in a way it was. Before I moved to Hong Kong I made sure to hit up all my favorite places, and I'm glad I did because it turns out macaroons are so expensive here!
Growing up I wasn't a big fan of Chico, but it has some really nice hidden cafes, as well as art...and of course beer!
If you're ever in Northern California go to Tin Roof bakery for the maccaroons and other desserts. So worth your while!
