Turtle Bay

75 MILES FROM CHICO
The possibilities for learning and exploration are endless at Turtle Bay Exploration Park. With the interactive exhibits at the museum, the 20-acre gardens, and the exotic wildlife—it’s hard to fit everything into one day. One of the coolest features of the park is Sundial Bridge, which crosses the Sacramento River. This bridge has no supports in the water, protecting both the salmon population and allowing visitors to enjoy the true beauty of the river.
