 Redding offers many ways for families and friends to have fun off the field- here are a few ideas:

If you only have 1 hour: 

Grab some gelato at Sweetspot and check "world's biggest sundial" off your list of Been There/Done That record-holders. Walking across the Sundial Bridge affords beautiful views of the Sacramento River and the McConnell Arboretum & Botanical Gardens, as well as the opportunity to marvel at an engineering...well, MARVEL. The glass-bottomed bridge and its 217-foot pylon are a spectacular sight, and the nearby Turtle Bay Museum store and cafe offer gifts and refreshments. The bridge is located in the heart of Redding. 

If you have 2 hours:

Go way, way back in time at Lake Shasta Caverns, where you can experience prehistoric stones, crystals, and rock formations. You have to see it to believe it! All tours begin with a scenic catamaran ride across the lake, then a bus ride up 800 feet of the mountainside, culminating with the ultimate underground adventure! Tours are at 10am, noon, and 2pm every day. The Lake Shasta Caverns are 17 miles north of Redding, just off Interstate 5. 

-OR- 

Take the dam tour! Shasta Dam may not be ancient, but it's still impressive! The ninth tallest dam in the USA, it holds the largest reservoir in California and generates hydroelectric power. The free, guided tour offers all sorts of interesting facts, including information about its storied construction, which included a conveyor belt that stretched 9.5 miles long. Tours are offered 7 days/week at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m. The tour takes 1 hour and visitors are asked to arrive 30 minutes prior to the scheduled start. Shasta Dam is about 10 miles north of downtown Redding, along Interstate 5. 

If you have half a day:

We've already covered giant sundials, underground caves, and hydroelectic power, why not waterfalls? Whiskeytown National Recreation Area has four major waterfalls to choose from, the largest being 220-foot Whisketown Falls, accessible from the James K. Carr trail. A favorite among locals for escaping the summer heat, Whiskeytown Falls is beautiful year-round and the moderate trail is a great opportunity to enjoy nature while getting your exercise in. Whiskeytown National Recreation Area is 8 miles west from downtown Redding, along Highway 299.

If you have a whole day:

As volcanos go, Mt. Lassen is our favorite. Lassen Volcanic National Park is home to smoking fumaroles, meadows freckled with wildflowers, clear mountain lakes, and numerous volcanoes. Jagged peaks tell the story of its eruptive past while hot water continues to mold the land. Lassen offers opportunities to discover the wonder and mysteries of volcanoes and to explore the undiscovered! Parts of the park are closed in the winter, but there is still plenty to see and do, including ranger-led walks in the Manzanita Lake area. Join a ranger for a one to two mile adventure exploring winter ecology and Lassen's geologic history. Visitors should meet the ranger outside the Loomis Ranger Station on the plaza at 1:00 p.m. and come prepared for a range of winter conditions. Dress in layers and carry food and drinking water. Lassen Park is about 50 miles east of Redding and has several entrances; check the official park site for seasonal road closure information. 

Even if your tournament schedule doesn't leave room for these adventures and activities, we hope you'll take advantage of Redding's many dining, shopping, and entertainment opportunities listed below!
