I fell in love with the area arriving from the coast 18 years ago driving up skyway along the "Little Grand Canyon" to a relaxed friendly town nestled among tall pines, blue skies and fresh mountain air. Vibrant fall colors made it even more inviting. Each season brings it's own beauty. An added benefit is living in a parklike setting and being only 90 minutes from Sacramento International Airport and the State Capitol. There's summer water activities on Lake Oroville and surrounding lakes. Winter fun is minutes away or 2 hours to world class ski resorts. Educational needs are met with Chico State and Butte Colleges close by. I consider Paradise a great spot to raise a family, retire or just enjoy peaceful living.
