Oroville is a small town with an interesting history. It was established during the Gold Rush. It's a laid-back place that you'll love if you're into outdoor activities such as hiking and biking. We're surrounded by mountains, rivers, and lakes. The scenery is gorgeous. It's my favorite reason to live here.
My 2 favorite unique places to visit in Oroville are the Chinese Temple (now a museum, not an active worship place) and the great Mother Orange Tree which is more than 100 years old and miraculously survived a terrible frost some years ago. As far as the best natural attractions, Bald Rock is a place that overlooks our town on the mountain with a fantastic view. I love it there. We also have one of the highest falls in the US called Feather Falls. Table Mountain has beautiful wildflowers everywhere in the Spring.
Its such a small town, there's not much employment, nightlife, etc. There are some decent restaurants in town, but nothing fancy. My favorite place to eat is Taqueria Estrella/They have great burritos. I also like Tong Fong Low, a Chinese restaurant that's been around since 1912.
