Four nearby casinos offer fun in our own back yard

Everyone needs to get away every once in a while. Why not get away and plan a fun vacation right here in our own back yard? With four top-notch casinos, all of which offer overnight accommodations, within a short drive of Chico, there’s no reason not to keep the money local—Indian casinos generate funds for our local tribes, as well as jobs. Here are just a few of the activities you can plan:

Feather Falls: Games of every variety, from slots to poker to blackjack. Live shows, and an added bonus: coming in winter 2010, a brand-spanking-new brewing company.

Gold Country: Live shows, bingo, slots, and they even have their very own bowling alley.

Colusa Casino Resort: In addition to well-known performers, there’s also a comedy club. Games of all sorts, as well as a salon and spa for pampering.

Rolling Hills: Live shows and gaming, as well as fun for the real sports enthusiasts: a John Daly golf course and a sports club that offers hunting and skeet shooting, among other activities.
